Case management enquiries for LAWFUSION are at an all time high for the first half of 2017, with a real mix of interest across many different areas of law, for a wide variety of workflow types.

It is interesting to see which areas of law are proving most popular with law firms so far this year and how it reflects what is happening in the marketplace and the country in general.

A good example of the LAWFUSION crime and billing modules being put to good use is Cartwright King – and Select’s 7-minute case study video explains how.

Due to their reputation as a favourite with crime firms, Select Legal Systems Limited has been invited to sponsor a new award category at the Yorkshire Crime Awards in Leeds in October – the Criminal Law Award. Team LAWFUSION looks forward to celebrating there with clients and prospects.

CONVEYANCING:  Conveyancing continues to be a popular area for LAWFUSION in 2017.  With proven workflow charts for both Residential (sale, purchase, remortgage and plot sale) and Commercial (sale, purchase and leases/CPSE) and integration to key tools such as ETSOS, SDLT and Experian/Call ML, LAWFUSION has a lot to offer the conveyancer.

FAMILY:  LAWFUSION has always been popular with family lawyers the first six months of this year is no exception. Family experts at Family Law Group explain how LAWFUSION has made a difference to their business.

The 7-minute Family Law Group case study video is worth a look, for any firm requiring software you can mould to suit your working practices.

PERSONAL INJURY:  A steady flow of PI enquiries have been received for LAWFUSION since the beginning of the year.

Again LAWFUSION’s flexible approach to case management wins through, especially for firms like SJP Law who specialise in catastrophic injury.  Team LAWFUSION has been able to work closely with SJP’s costs management team to develop a comprehensive costs management module which is now available for any firm that requires ‘cost control’ for its multi-track cases.

The SJP Law case study gives a good explanation of the difference this software module can make to a firm’s costs management processes.

COURT OF PROTECTION:  Very much a niche area, but one for which LAWFUSION has a sound track record.  The EMG Case Study video is an excellent example of how an incredibly paper-heavy area of law can be streamlined to become entirely paperless.

LAWFUSION offers case management workflows for all areas of law.  If you have something very unique in mind, Team LAWFUSION can help you build it using its flexible workflow tool that will meet all your needs and preferred working methods perfectly.
