Key Features

Central Database

Because LAWFUSION is a fully integrated suite of software, at its heart is a powerful, central database that stores and links every single piece of case data available making it easily accessible to fee earners and relevant support staff with the right security permissions.  This not only makes document production easy but also provides a full picture of the case at any point in time, aiding important decision-making as the case progresses.

Workflows

Workflow is a significant element of the LAWFUSION case management suite of software tools. Workflow is a tool that enables law firms to automate legal and administrative processes in a step-by-step approach relating to specific areas of work.  On offer to LAWFUSION users is a generic workflow tool that enables law firms to write their own automated procedures from scratch but there is also a large library of proven workflow charts covering most areas of law, that can be used as is, or tweaked to suit a law firm’s unique ways of working.

For more detail regarding the power of LAWFUSION workflow, there is an overview page here: Workflow.

For further detail on specific workflow areas, please follow these links:  Conveyancing, Court of Protection, Crime, Debt Collection, Employment, Family, Financial Mis-selling, Immigration, Personal Injury, Wills, Probate & Lasting Powers of Attorney, and many more.

We are adding new workflow charts all the time, so if you don’t see your area of expertise listed here, please call 01482 567601, because chances are we will be able to help.

Specialist Tools & Modules

Time Recording

LAWFUSION is designed to make it so easy for fee earners, at all levels of the firm, to record their time so that it becomes second nature and much less of a chore, providing all the tools necessary to ensure law firms have the means to capture all billable time for both private and legal aid work.

Automatically recognising when a fee earner is performing a task – i.e. recording case notes, producing a document etc. the software prompts the user to book the appropriate time for the task. Because LAWFUSION is very much focused on capturing time in this way many firms see an immediate increase in billable time following implementation. More info>

Document Management

As part of its Legal Case Management suite of software LAWFUSION offers a robust set of document management tools to help law firms create, file and control their documents and the way they flow in and out of the Practice on a daily basis. This is a significant area of the system. For full details please read more here.  Read more>

SMS Text Messaging

With the smartphone firmly at the hub of daily life there is little doubt that text messaging should be part of a fee earner tool-kit.  Users can set up templates from LAWFUSION for regular messages, multi-send to a list of contacts and include text messaging as part of a workflow procedure – automatically recording all in case history.

Case Tracker

The LAWFUSION Case Tracker is a secure online portal that allows  lawfirms to provide up-to-date information regarding the progress of their cases- 24/7.  As a matter is progressed in the LAWFUSION system details of changes can be automatically published to the internet securely for clients and other relevant parties to peruse.  Case Tracker can be tailored to your firm’s needs and corporate style.

Integration

All the modules in the LAWFUSION suite of legal software are fully integrated.  This means users can interrogate the accounts system for financial information whilst in a case record and pull relevant case information into the accounts and time recording areas of the system etc. whenever necessary.

LAWFUSION offers integration to a number of key third-party tools too – of course Microsoft Office, but also to a number of other business critical applications.  For example:

  • IP based telephone systems
  • LAA submissions
  • Legal forms packages
  • A2A integration to the MOJ PI Portal
  • Search tools such as OneSearch for conveyancing

Fee Earner Desktop

The LAWFUSION Fee Earner Desktop is designed to empower users to manager their day-to-day tasks in the most efficient and productive way possible. All the information a fee earner could possibly need is simply a click away. This module provides front-office access to all LAWFUSION modules including Accounts, Practice Management and Case Management etc. etc.

Priority Action List

With the LAWFUSION Priority Action List there is an opportunity to reduce risk and cut indemnity premiums. The module constantly probes all areas of LAWFUSION to provide staff with an up-to-date list of priority actions. Highly configurable – the user sets which actions are to be  highlighted.  Using this tool fee earners and support staff can be  alerted automatically about:

  • Impending limitation dates
  • Files approaching their credit limit
  • Files that are due for billing
  • Overdue bill payments
  • Anti-money laundering compliance issues
  • Cases that need reviewing

Reminders

In LAWFUSION ‘reminder scheduling’ can be highly automated as part of your legal workflow charts or users can add case, accounts and personal reminders manually on an ad hoc basis.

Case Management tools such as LAWFUSION’s ‘Priority Action List’ and ‘Universal Case Viewer’ allow users to display their reminders in different ways so that they can keep a close eye on what needs doing by when, ensuring important tasks and essential dates such as limitation dates etc. will not be overlooked.  All reminders in LAWFUSION can be automatically transported into ‘Outlook Tasks’ too for users that prefer to manage reminders from there.

Universal Case Viewer

Universal Case Viewer (or case manager as it is sometimes called) is a powerful, customisable to-do list that provides LAWFUSION users with an onscreen overview of cases and a summary of important tasks and limitation dates all in one interactive view. It looks very much like the all familiar spreadsheet, but it is not ‘static’ like a spreadsheet. It is fully interactive.  By double clicking on any line item fee earners can drill down into cases from this screen.

File Reviews

As part of the Lexel standard and Legal Aid Agency requirements, a supervisor must regularly review the files being worked on by his/her staff. LAWFUSION can be set up to automate this procedure and reminds the supervisor when reviews are required.

Reporting

Of course, the LAWFUSION Report Writer can be pointed at any part of the system for in depth interrogation. The case management area is no exception. Your case management reports can be created and saved in a reports library for further re-runs whenever required. Reports can be set to auto-run at set times and distributed to named users without any manual intervention.

Online Help

Of course, comprehensive help is built into all LAWFUSION screens, but there is also an online knowledge base as part of the customer portal on the Select website, that is updated regularly for you.

Users also have access to an online record of any support calls placed with Select Legal. This is useful as a record, but also it can be used as a reference tool because it offers full text search and retrieval. For example if a member of the support team has helped a colleague with something in the past other users will be able to find it by searching for particular keywords.
