    Staggering Microsoft 365 Usage Stats Signal a Wake-up Call

    From the stage at the recent Microsoft 365 Conference held in Orlando, Microsoft released some staggering new usage metrics for its Microsoft 365 productivity cloud.

    Best legal document management software. What's right for your law firm?

    Managing documents effectively is crucial for law firms. A robust document management system (DMS) can streamline workflows, improve collaboration, and enhance productivity.

    In the rapidly evolving legal sector, efficiency and accuracy are paramount. Legal document management software has emerged as a critical tool. However, with numerous options available in the market, selecting the right document management software for your law firm can be a daunting task. This blog aims to guide you through the process of choosing the right legal document management software.

    Unlocking success: knowledge management for law firms

    Does proposal management software really help you win new business?

    Many businesses have to regularly respond to requests for proposals (RFPs) - after all, each RFP is a sales opportunity.

How well is your business equipped to produce efficient and effective proposals?

    What is proposal management – and who is responsible for it?

    How Custom Metadata in Atlas Works

    Digitizing case law documentation is one thing, but can you actually find anything in those millions of bytes of data? Here’s how custom metadata in Atlas saves time and quite possibly the legal professional’s sanity. 
     
    Case Law – when previous legal cases constitute a binding precedent where the rationale, judgements, legal principles and interpretations of previous cases are documented so they can be applied to new cases – ensures the same practice and application of the law over time. A famous example from the United States is Roe v Wade, but each political jurisdiction, whether local, regional, or national will have hundreds, if not thousands, of cases lawyers are able to review.  

    With remote working or work from home practices growing, filing cabinets are hardly fit for purpose when it comes to SharePoint document management. So how do legal firms create a SharePoint document management system where previous case law can be collated, stored, and easily accessed online?

    Uploading digitized case law documentation is one thing, but without a powerful search and easy-to-use filtering configuration, that particular case you so urgently need becomes the proverbial ‘needle in a haystack’. An intuitive, user-friendly experience here could be essential to a lawyer finding the right case law document … and winning their case.
