Five years ago today we launched Clio at the 2008 ABA Solo & Small Firm annual meeting. When Clio launched, we helped usher in a new generation of cloud computing services for small- to mid-sized law firms. More than twenty thousand legal professionals rely on Clio every day, and our team has grown from just two — myself and my co-founder Rian Gauvreau — to over 85 full-time employees. Clio’s customers are now managing over 3.5 million matters, 11 million contacts, 7 million documents and 4.5 million e-mails on the platform.
It’s been a tremendously humbling and rewarding experience for Rian and I to have built Clio from a drawing on a napkin to the most widely-used cloud-based practice management platform in the world. We couldn’t have done it without your support, and for that you have our deepest gratitude.
