Designed to Deliver:
Efficiency, Integration, Results
LawPort is purpose-built for the law firm sector, based on a deep understanding of attorney workflows and familiarity with critical firm systems such as Elite, iManage and Interaction. In addition, LawPort was developed as a SharePoint accelerator—meaning you don’t need costly and time consuming SharePoint consulting or development. Finally, implementation is fast, leading to rapid ROI.

SharePoint, Optimized for Law Firms

Purpose-Built Content Connectors

Two full service law firms relied heavily upon LawPort to streamline internal/external communications, enable collaboration, accelerate management of multiple distributed information systems and deliver seamless client service during their merger.

Expertise at your Fingertips
A large global law firm required a streamlined, manageable method to collect attorney knowledge and experience for marketing, business development, new matter assignment and performance review purposes. This critical information was hidden in many commonly used systems – Active Directory, HRIS, DMS, financial, CRM, recruiting/MCLE and biography management – and near impossible to locate. Now, LawPort’s Legal Object Model (LOM) allows them to easily capture and display this rich information in an Attorney Directory & Experience Module. Through this single venue, users can quickly query, find and display the firm’s internal experts, based on areas of specialty, industry focus, language fluency, contact information, biographies and more.
A midsized law firm allocated significant resources to core legal enterprise applications and Microsoft’s SharePoint, intending to build a knowledge management solution that delivers attorney and administrative value. They quickly realized their SP implementation was cost prohibitive and at least 6 months to one year away. LawPort’s Legal Object Model to the rescue! Within 10 weeks, the firm successfully deployed a professional, agile, scalable, and competitive KM platform. With LawPort, they reached their goals for SharePoint and so much more, without significant capital investment or ongoing IT/operational support. LawPort delivers out-of-the-box integration with the legal industry’s critical line of business enterprise applications (e.g. Aderant, Elite, iManage, OpenText eDOCS, LexisNexis InterAction, etc.), saving firms the added cost, configuration, consulting licenses and services typically required when implementing SharePoint.
