The legal industry is well past the days when scrawled notes in a day planner constituted time recording. The business of law has changed, requiring that time entries comply with client requirements and firm objectives. We believe the path forward is a new concept that we call “compliant time”: a way to streamline timekeeping and improve time-capture accuracy while also ensuring adherence to OCGs.This ebook explores the gaps and inefficiencies in the current stateat most law firms and shows how compliant time can help resolve these issues. Insights into how current processes impact and inhibit internal law firm stakeholder objectives reveal why firms simply must find new approaches. Declining realization rates, competitive market forces, and lawyer attraction/retention challenges are all factors that point to a need for change in time and billing technology.
In what ways can your firm distinguish itself from competitorsto land new clients?

And they help business development fill its critical role by freeingcapacity—a long-standing, though not insurmountable, challenge.This ebook provides concrete tips on how you can differentiate your firm to drive growth and promote client success.

In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done.
These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.

And the use among law firms is set to grow dramatically in the next five years.
