5 solid reasons why you need a legal case management software for your law firm and legal department

The legal industry has well recognized the importance of technology and automation systems recently, especially after the pandemic. While many law firms and legal departments have already started to implement LegalTech for daily tasks, some firms are still unsure about the capability of a professional legal case management system.


Today, we list down 5 strong reasons why law firms and legal departments today are in a despairing need of a professional legal case management software.


  • Increased productivity – With legal practitioners accessing files with regular and real-time updates, they feel empowered to focus more on legal tasks, instead of spending time on the mundane administrative routine tasks. This, in turn, enhances efficiency and increases productivity, resulting in maximum profits for the firm.
  • Data Security – Data security remains the top concerns for law firms and legal departments worldwide. By investing in a trusted and secure legal case management software, the law firm enjoys the benefits of the legal software along with its security features.
  • Centralization – Even when a legal practitioner completes his task on time, he sometimes has to wait for a reciprocation task or email from another team member, hence delaying the task. With a single, centralized storage, legal practitioners can upload, make changes and exchange emails and other confidential documents and data all together in a single go, without having to wait for someone else.
  • Stronger communication – A professional legal case management software allows employees of a law firm and legal departments to collaboration better and faster, allowing to exchange and retrieve data from a single place, hence enhancing efficiency. Efficient communication with work team means more transparency and productivity within law firms. It also ensures that no information or update is left out.
  • Overall client satisfaction – For legal practitioners, getting their legal work done on time and conveying it accurately to their clients is a massive point for their professional growth. For clients, having received accurate information is vital success. So, in both cases, it’s a win-win situation.

It is extremely crucial for law firms and legal departments to integrate a professional legal software and case management system that will help attorneys and legal practitioners with their everyday tasks. Casengine has been designed specifically for this reason – to automate workflow so that the legal practitioners’ workload becomes easier and they can focus more on the legal work.

Essential Facts to Check Before Choosing Legal Software for Your Law Firm and Legal Department

The year 2020 stroked upon us the reality of uncertainty and urgency as industries coped up with the pandemic and lockdown situation. As we get back to normalcy, the legal industry has started to realize the importance of LegalTech with the rise of automation and legal practice management systems.


But before choosing a suitable legal practice management software for your law firm and legal department, there are a few basic key points to be noted:


Research – It is always better to conduct prior research and narrow down your options with considerations such as determining how long the company has been into existence, the location of the firm and how it will handle your data – whether data can be migrated on to their cloud system or not. Additionally, keeping an eye on their client list will also be helpful.


What the software offers – Knowing about what the software can offer your law firm and legal department is always a must. It’s recommended to make a list of the features that will be most helpful to your law firm or legal department and to double-check whether the software you are opting for provides those.


Pricing structure – You would thoroughly want to consider the price packages and free structure before choosing a legal software. Whether it is an annual, quarterly or monthly payment, and if the software provider offers discount on a specific number of users are some important points to keep in mind.


Data Security – Law firms/Legal departments also need to see if their data is stored securely. Some parameters can help identify the right measures:


If the firm has their own servers and IT team, they can ask for on prem hosting options which means their data is stored on their servers and managed by their team only. However, it comes with several restrictions like anytime and anywhere access might not be possible and portal can be accessed only on a controlled environment on device but it gives the firm comfort of data storage.

In case external hosting is opted, cloud storage must be preferred like MS Azure or AWS cloud. Firms can ask the vendor about the data encryption on rest which means its securely stored on the cloud.


Accessibility is another critical factor like data can only be accessed after validation of the user’s identity and must be secured by one-time passwords that should come only to the authorized users of that law firm only.

A traditional legal system consists of multiple roles including that of lawyers and technologists, process/project managers, financiers, operation managers, data analytics professionals and paraprofessionals- all who work manually. This states that the traditional methods of practice are time-consuming that also require additional efforts.


It is particularly important for the legal industry to keep up with the technological developments because of the competition and client demand that seeks more efficiency in order to provide improved legal service.


We created Casengine to provide a digital solution to the lawyers and legal practitioners, who can speed up their repetitive work process through workflow automation.

The Importance of Team Collaboration in The Legal Industry

Communication has been vital throughout history. In industries, ‘team collaboration’ is commonly used to implement communication. The term refers to a practice where employees work closely to achieve a common goal, such as enhancing their work or finding suitable solutions for a given task or project.


In the legal industry, team collaboration has proven to be critical in determining the success of a law firm or an in-house legal department. Effective and continuous communication within an organization itself boosts productivity and ensures success.


In the past, missed communications was a major source of problems within the legal industry. While most of the legal tasks were met, one cannot deny the fact that at times, due to the massive number of employees and the traditional style of practicing law, including paperwork and direct phone calls, there would be a decrease of accuracy and efficiency of communication within a law firm itself.


Fortunately, modern technology has provided a solution to reduce the communication gap. LegalTech has been proven to be a crucial factor in boosting productivity, as well as maximizing profit for law firms.


With current digital solutions such as automation systems, communication with work team in law firms and legal departments has greatly increased. Efficient communication with work team means more transparency and productivity within law firms. It also ensures that no information or update is left out.


With Casengine, our specialized legal digital automation system, legal practitioners can now indulge in stronger communication terms with work team and make sure no important point is being missed out.

World Environment Day 2021 – Casengine Staying In-Line with Dubai Government’s Paperless Strategy

June 5th marks World Environment Day!! In an effort to encourage awareness and actions for the protection of the environment and following the Dubai Government Paperless Strategy, we are committed to our share in the responsibility of building a paperless future.


As industries race to cope with the paperless initiative in the UAE, legal industry should not stand behind. Traditionally, the legal industry was reputed of using large amounts of papers. Best example of that is the traditional mindset of printing emails, in the course of carrying out the legal services, then hiring man power to store those printed emails and securing storage for safe keeping, resulting in excessive cost to any law firm or legal department.


In order to implement the paper less strategy, ease up the workload of legal practitioners, and enhance efficiency, we created a cloud-based/ on premise legal automation system to be used by law firms and in-house legal departments. Our digital solution Casengine empowers lawyers to take control of their work in real-time, and with a massive capacity of documents and files storing.


Casengine has helped the legal industry move forward with the use of workflow automation through a well-designed digital platform that requires no papers. This especially was realized by legal practitioners during the pandemic as lawyers were working from home and did not have access to all the physical files. Being a bilingual and fully-automated cloud-based/on premise system, Casengine helps lawyers store all the information in a digital space that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.


With more and more law firms realizing the benefits of automation systems, we pride ourselves to continually working towards our aim to encourage minimal to no papers usage in the legal industry with the help of Casengine.

Legal Practitioners Seek Flexible Work Arrangements through Case Management Software

Taking a look back, the face of the legal industry has been transformed immensely. In an industry where traditional workstyle dominated for years, there now occur various trendy and upcoming cultures that law firms and in-house legal departments have started to adapt for the betterment of the employees and legal service overall.


One of these cultures include flexible work arrangements. This work preference particularly came into light last year when the pandemic was at its peak and industries practiced work from home and remote working. Now with the legal industry getting back to normalcy and physical, brick-and-mortar offices reopening, lawyers shared their input and preference, voicing out on being given the opportunity of flexible work arrangements in law firms.


Flexible working is also increasingly vivid due to the technology advancements and changing attitudes of legal practitioners and employers. Flexible workplace arrangements have been proven to be massively beneficial for lawyers leading to greater productivity, better mental wellbeing and a compelling strategy for the work-life balance.


This sort of work arrangements varies from flexible number of hours for the employees, flexibility in the pattern of work as well as the location. This suggests that lawyers are able to choose the start and end timing of their work, weather they prefer working in shifts, part-time or staggered return to work, and also the location of their work.


With their preferred time, pattern and location of work, legal practitioners feel empowered and trusted by their employers, resulting in improved concentration and an upgraded legal service delivery for their clients. This helps in the reduction of the overall employee turnover. Additionally, apart from greater productivity and happier employees, a flexible working system also helps law firms and in-house legal departments to reduce operating costs.


According to a survey by Lexis Nexis, over 50% of employees in the legal industry feel that flexible working helps them achieve a better work-life balance. Provided employees guarantee well-managed work as per their commitments and clients’ expectations.

Following this, a number of worldwide reputed law firms have implemented flexible work arrangements. These include Baker McKenzie, Charles Russel Speechlys, Dentons and many more.


LegalTech, particularly in this scenario, plays a massively crucial role. It is absolutely mandatory to keep in mind that in order to implement schemes such as remote working or flexible work arrangements, law firms and in-house legal departments must adopt a professional legal practice management software for the employees to practice flexible working.
