A completely integrated software for solicitors that brings together all your legal accounting, reporting and billing mechanisms efficiently under one system.
LawWare’s legal accounts software module is a completely integrated system. It uses the same database as the case management system. Consequently, this avoids the need for posting and reposting between one system and another.
All accounts information is available in real-time. This allows you to view reports instantly and determine the overall well-being of your practice as well as individual client matters.
Reporting and notifications allow cashiers to identify debit balances, case files where fees can be recovered and easily navigate to case files with Client Debit balances.

LawWare’s billing system with its customisable billing templates, makes the process of raising and generating bills straightforward and more efficient. This ensures there are no billing delays or errors which could lead to late or difficult to recover payments.
LawWare also handles all your client accounting responsibilities just as efficiently. This ensures client monies are safe and client transactions dealt with in an accurate and timely manner in full accordance with Law Society of Scotland and SRA / Law Society accounting rules and regulations.
Once the core of any computer system in a legal office, and even now still reason enough in itself to implement LawWare, the integrated Accounts module is a real revelation in ease and flexibility of use. LawWare Accounts offers a straightforward interface with some of the most sophisticated reporting facilities available on the market.
While most solutions currently available have started as a basic Accounts package that is then tailored to meet the legal requirements, LawWare Accounts was designed from scratch specifically to offer an integrated accounts solution for Legal Firms, utilising the central Relational Database that powers LawWare, thereby ensuring that Accounts information is available and utilised through all modules of LawWare rather than being confined to the Cashroom.
LawWare uniquely provides your accounting information on a real-time basis. Thus allowing all authorised users access to information that is as up-to-date as possible.
Gone are the days of a Cashroom being a day (or more) behind in posting your accounts entries, with critical financial data being out of date.
In are the days of your Cashroom posting entries real-time and users having access to accounts data immediately. Indeed, the flexibility of a LawWare system allows trained alternative staff, with the relevant security privileges, to act as relief cashiers. This can be done from any PC when your Cashroom is under pressure, avoiding a crisis over accounts information.
With LawWare, subject to designated access rights, all users can access accounts details on-screen. They can prepare detailed accounts statements, check credit limits and perform detailed financial analysis according to their access authorisations. Imagine instead of waiting for the Cash room to give you a copy of a client’s ledger, being able to access the details at the touch of a button, or, a partner being able to generate vital & up-to-date financial reports from their own PC. All this is possible with the LawWare Accounts module as part of the LawWare Integrated Practice Management Solution.
The best legal accounts software for small law firms is integrated software. By that we mean systems that integrally connect to the case management system. This means there is no duplication of effort. Information is entered once rather than twice – saving time and effort.
There is no simple answer to this. Law firms use proprietary accounts software, bespoke software and software tailored specifically for legal businesses. Your choice should depend on the software’s abilities to keep you compliant and make you more productive.
There are many accounting packages on the market. Many of these are proprietary brands meet the needs of all types of businesses – not just law firms.
The best legal software for accounting is probably not a proprietary package. The solicitors’ accounts rules place additional requirements on all legal practices. Consequently, you should look out for an accounts package that is specifically designed for a legal business.
Our clients range from small start-up legal practices to multi-partner, multi-site firms.
Another great customer service experience from LawWare. My laptop had to be stripped back to factory settings as part of a repair - taking hours! In contrast, restoring LawWare took one phone call to the support team and I was up and running in 6 minutes. If only everything was so easy!
As the first commercial user of LawWare back in 1998, we have had no hesitation in remaining with the product through its development. We thoroughly recommend it to any firm looking for a practice management system.
The helpdesk is exceptionally good. Whatever the query there is always a human being there to help. No leaving messages or being advised to go to a website. The best computer service for solicitors I have ever used!
The linking of documents and casefiles saves so much time! I have experience of several accounts packages and I like that LawWare is simple to use and easy to learn. Support is quick and effective and staff are helpful and courteous.
I have worked with a number of Case Management providers over the years but have not come across anything with the attention to detail and thoroughness of LawWare. My colleagues and I have not been disappointed.
I can’t imagine trying to be a law firm in the 21st Century without 21st Century IT systems. Having a ‘single system’ that underpins all the work, whether we are in the office or out, is an integral part of what we are building.
The level of support is the main benefit using this system. The system itself once you have had training is simple and easy to use. We have a great relationship with LawWare and the ongoing support is second to none.
Significant preparation was required to configure and import the data from our old firm. We had to get all clients onto the new system and then learn how to use it. We just find it very easy to use, much easier than our old system.
Being a busy litigator with a growing firm it is incredibly useful to be able to view my files from any location with some form of internet connection. I am a fan, and want to keep working with LawWare to make a good product great.
The switch to the new LawCloud system, which is still on-going, has gone very well. We found the LawWare team without exception to be very helpful and knowledgeable. All queries are followed up and dealt with promptly.
