Start-up Law Firm: Case Study photo

“Because of the recession, I was no longer getting the job satisfaction I used to get from my position as a solicitor, even though I was employed as an associate in what used to be a successful legal department within a larger law firm. Start-up Law Firm: Cloud Case Study

In setting up my own legal practice, LawCloud has enabled me to make a smooth transition. The process was a painless as possible. There is a misguided preconception that establishing a law firm requires a great deal of infrastructure. However, with LawCloud, much of that infrastructure, including legal IT and practice management software is already contained in an ideal bundle, accessible with for an all-inclusive monthly cost, with no-upfront capital outlays. This is particularly helpful for cashflow. Something that I rarely had to consider with my previous law firm, even as an associate.

Further, I already had my laptop and internet connection, so the only other main concern was getting the required professional indemnity insurance required by the Law Society. The best part about it was that my old firm used LawWare. This is now incorporated within the LawCloud service. So, I really was able to hit the ground running and focus on building my practice.”
