Choosing Legal Software
Choosing and then customising a practice management system is one of the most crucial decisions a firm will make. It can bring the most significant return on investment you will ever make in your firm if well implemented.

Why choosing legal software is difficult?
Legal software is rarely 100% suitable for a firm out of the box. Legal software needs to be customised to be suitable at launch and to provide the foundation for future development.
Why the software provider is the last place to look for advice?
Software providers have a simple goal - to sell you their product. Asking for their advice is analogous to asking a shark for the best swimming spots. The only staff you will generally speak to know a nominal amount about their product and even less about the competition.
