Clio Wins Law Technology News Award for Practice Management Software Excellence

We’re thrilled to announce that Clio (www.goclio.com), a web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product for solo and small law firms, has won a Bronze LTN Award for excellence in practice management software.  Practice management is one of the most competitive product categories and Clio was the only brand-new product to have placed in the top three.  The LTN Awards, sponsored by Law Technology News (LTN) magazine, recognizes the best technology in the legal industry.  LTN’s subscribership voted to determine the winners of these prestigious honors.

Clio is the only SaaS product to win a spot in the practice management category and we could not be more proud to accept this award.  Clearly, the legal industry is realizing the benefits of running a law practice online, and our solos and small firm customers have made their voices heard by voting for Clio.  We are exceedingly grateful to LTN and its readership for this accolade.

Monica Bay, Editor-in-Chief of LTN, remarks, “Especially in these trying times, it’s encouraging and exhilarating to see such leadership and innovation in our legal technology community.  Congratulations to all the individuals and organizations that continue to inspire all of us!”

Clio wins this award in extremely good company, sharing the podium with two longstanding practice management veterans: Gold award winner STI (Tabs/Practice Master) and Silver award winner Lexis Nexis’ Total Practice Advantage.

Clio was first launched on October 1, 2008 and was the first comprehensive practice management SaaS product to enter the legal software market.  Since then, the product has been widely adopted by hundreds of small firms and solo practitioners in the U.S. and Canada, and has become the frontrunner in what is now an extremely competitive market.  Clio made Top Ten lists at both 2009’s New York LegalTech show and the ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago.
