Cloud-based legal practice management for lawyers
Moving legal practice management to the cloud especially suits small to mid-size law firms and solo practitioners who lack the time, money, skills (and interest) to manage their own IT themselves.
Key features of Matters.Cloud legal practice management tool
#1 Client and matter management: workflow mapping and tracking with templates, timelines, milestones, tasks, reminders, commitments.

A clean, simple approach like with Matters.Cloud helps make business intelligence user-friendly.
