Planning law firm tasks


Grouping tasks in law firm's workflow by dates and priorities
Prioritizing tasks is essential practice in Law firm, because attorneys work in goal-oriented way and many of their tasks do not have due dates. Law specialists from different departments usually plan their activities in the context of some tasks or events (client meetings, mediations, court appearances etc.) that are scheduled for some date. Law specialists should decide how much preparation is required for each event and sometimes it is necessary to concentrate more efforts on certain tasks in order to get ready before the deadlines. Often lawyers face the conflict between urgency and importance of tasks - if some task is urgent this does not automatically make task important. Many of tasks within Law firm's workflow seem urgent, but it is preferably to concentrate on importance of tasks in order not to lose long-term benefits. That's why task management solution for law firm should support task parameters such as Due Date and Priority.  To decide what tasks are urgent, what are important and how to allocate priorities is up to law specialists.

Setting order of law firm's tasks

Routine operations or tasks that do not require unique talents and knowledge of lawyers should be delegated to paralegals. Lawyers make their decisions according to legal deadlines and clients' expectations, so work delegated to paralegals, as a part of this workflow, should be also sorted and ordered. In other words lawyers should be able to delegate tasks to paralegals in appropriate order that fits lawyers' schedules. Tasks of paralegals may include investigating the facts of cases, identifying appropriate laws and judicial decisions, preparing and drafting various documents, communicating with clients and officials, preparing written reports that attorneys use in determining how cases should be handled and many other.
