My Legal Briefcase and Clio announce integration to streamline practice management and small claims litigation
Toronto, ON and Vancouver, BC — Thursday, May 31, 2012 — Today at the 7th Annual Law Society of Upper Canada Solo and Small Firm Conference, My Legal Briefcase announced an integration with Clio, the leading provider of cloud-based practice management, to better serve a growing need for cloud-based systems in the legal industry.
The integration allows My Legal Briefcase’s small claims document and scheduling system, court forms and documents to connect and sync with Clio, creating a streamlined solution for solo and small firm lawyers. This gives solo and small firm lawyers the ability to better manage contacts, case files and scheduling.
“I see a lot of potential to make a unique difference in the legal community. There are opportunities for great synergies between the two companies. This integration will help clients reduce the amount of time spent working on small cases and greatly improve cost efficiency,” says founder and CEO Monica Goyal. “Instead of using two different systems, clients will be able to work from one portal and complete all their essential scheduling, case and client management tasks from one place. The cost and time savings can be substantial.”
Jack Newton, CEO of Clio, adds, “My Legal Briefcase has developed ground-breaking technology to streamline the small claims litigation process. We’re excited to deliver access to this technology to our customers based in Ontario and beyond.”
Integrating with Clio allows My Legal Briefcase to continue to expand its footprint in North America, and serve a greater client base in Canada and the U.S. As more legal professionals realize the benefits of cloud computing, and move to cloud-based systems, My Legal Briefcase and integrations like Clio put it at the forefront of expanding its services.
