On the Road
Clio COO George Psiharis shared highlights from the 2020 Legal Trends Report and the three things firms did with cloud technology that put them at an advantage over their competitors. Hint, one of the things successful firms did was to effectively implement e-billing options for clients.
The Legal Trends Report shows that 27% of lawyers still don’t accept electronic payments. Tom West, CEO of AffiniPay, the parent company of LawPay, talked to Colletti about the reluctance and why these firms that use electronic payments and offer payment options fare better than their competitors. He also shared what to expect from online billing in the future.
Legal Innovators CEO and Co-Founder Bryan Parker shared with Colletti why businesses will see more success if they make diversity and inclusion a business imperative, and use data to assure they’re achieving goals.
