Readers Name ProLaw as a Top Practice Management and Docketing and Calendaring Solution

LOS ANGELES, Sep. 3, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite, a leading global provider of enterprise business management solutions (EBMS) to professional services firms, today announced that ProLaw has been honored in two categories of The Recorder’s Best of 2014 Legal Products & Services survey. Readers of California’s leading weekly newspaper and digital site cast 3,800 votes for the legal services and solutions they consider to be the best, honoring ProLaw for its practice management and docketing and calendaring functionality. This year’s award for practice management enters ProLaw into The Recorder hall of fame, having been named in the category for the third time since 2010.

“ProLaw is designed to fully automate the practice and manage the business of law, and its induction into The Recorder hall of fame indicates how its seamless front and back office integration continues to exceed client expectations year after year,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management for Thomson Reuters Elite. “From a docketing and calendaring perspective, we are thrilled that ProLaw has also been recognized for its ability to help clients minimize risk and operate more efficiently.”

ProLaw’s front and back office were designed from the ground up to share a single database, making case and client information truly integrated with the firms’ accounting and billing systems. Because ProLaw provides everyone in the office with access to all critical information from one convenient location, they are able to work more effectively and efficiently. The solution also provides direct access from Microsoft Outlook, where lawyers and staff work every day, making it easy to save emails and attachments to relevant matters directly to ProLaw with a single click or touch of an iPad.

ProLaw’s rules-based calendaring and docketing tools reduce the risk of missing required filings, responses, and appearances. Automated scheduling ensures that the right professionals are assigned to firm events based on their roles in each case, and team members’ calendars are constantly updated with upcoming docket events, so every person involved in a matter always has the most up-to-date information.

Results of the 2014 Best of Legal Products & Services survey were published in the August 15th issue of The Recorder.
