The title of this post is a rhetorical question, as you’ll see in my article called “Revolutionizing Client Relations with CaseMap’s New ReportBooks,” just published on the fantastic site. As usual, there are a number of great articles in this edition of LLRX.
I often hear people saying that there’s not much “new” or “cool” happening in legal technology. I just smile at them. They ain’t looking in the right places, if they that’s what they think. There’s a lot of cool things out there, You just gotta know where to look.
I’ve become such good friends with Bob Wiss and Greg Krehel of CaseMap over the years that I don’t really pretend to be objective about CaseMap, but I encourage you to read my article, think about the ReportBooks feature with an open mind and fresh eyes, and I think you’ll see ways to give your clients some of the things they really want from their lawyers.
The money quote for lawyers:
“I suggest that you get to ReportBooks before either your clients tell you to start using them or your clients stop calling you and move their work to competitors who do use them. As always, the choice is up to you, but this choice is much clearer than most of the technology choices you have these days.”
The money quote for clients of lawyers:
“If you are a client of a law firm, or a client of many law firms, as many corporate general counsel are today, then pick up the phone and find out why your firms haven’t told you about ReportBooks yet. In today’s world, the bill for that call from your lawyer might be more than the upgrade price for CaseMap, but it will pay for itself many times over if you improve the quality of information about your matters as much as ReportBooks can do for you.”
