Take a moment to think about the day to day activities at your law practice. Are there tasks you repeat the same way every time like checklists, deadline schedules, creating documents, and case intake? A workflow is a way of standardizing those tasks so they’re completed the same way every time — increasing productivity for your law firm and making sure no step is missed.
Why are Workflows Important?
Utilizing workflows for law firms is important because repetitive tasks can present a number of challenges:
Inefficiencies. Repeated activities can take up considerable time when lacking the right tools or efficient processes. Very often that time is unbillable, so you’re losing money while handling these necessary tasks.
Inconsistencies. Performing tasks regularly doesn’t necessarily mean they’re always performed the same way. This causes confusion within your law practice and when communicating with legal clients.
Missing Accountability.Without a defined workflow in place, how can you be sure tasks are completed properly on and time for your clients? With your custom workflows, you can control what gets done by who, and when.
