Law firms tend to look to the marketplace for new software for a variety of reasons but on the whole most of these reasons are underpinned by a desire to better manage their case loads, their finances and their client relationships.

Joanne Hunter, Head of Marketing for Select Legal has written a blog to help firms structure their thoughts as they enter the legal software marketplace in search of a new legal practice management system.
