Step 3. Setting Law firm workflow


Create and use unique Workflow that meets specific requirements of your Law Firm

Main part of activities within law firms' workflow (such as fulfilment of various legal procedures, documents drafting and processing) is strictly regulated by governmental rules. However success and effectiveness of law firm is determined by professionalism of its lawyers, managerial capabilities of company direction and by practical organization of working processes. Usually workflows of law firms are organized according to generally accepted practices and influenced by business needs, attitudes and purposes of each specific law firm.
For example: Workflow of law firm may have Client and Process oriented structure, where each Client has one or several law cases. Law case is a process which consists of stages and tasks that lawyers should perform:

  • Client 1
    • Law case 1
      • Stage 1
        • Task 1
        • Task 2

  3. Prepare form LP-1
  4. When filed:  scan
  5. When filed:  give copy to client
