Effecs Workflow for Law Firms
According to Thomson Reuters’ “State of Small Law Firms in the United States – 2019 Report”, the top six challenges that small law firms face are:
Acquiring new client business
Spending too much time on administrative tasks
Increasing complexity of technology
Cost control and expense growth
Lack of internal efficiency
Rate pressure / clients demanding more for less
According to the same report, only 40% of a small firm lawyer’s job is spent actually practicing law. When asked about which activities take up the most of their time, lawyers grouped their activities into four buckets: attracting and retaining clients, practicing law (60% of the total time), running their firm, and managing finances.
Clearly, small law practices are under a lot of pressure given the multitude of activities they must perform on a daily basis.
