ClioStrategic Partnership Offers Law Firms Holistic Approach to Practice Management

Vancouver, BC and Dayton, OH – October 17, 2013 – Clio, the leader in cloud-based practice management tools for the legal industry, and Curo Legal, a practice operations firm focused on creating greater efficiencies and profitability for law firms, announced today that they will partner to strengthen opportunities for firms to better manage and grow their practices.

According to the American Bar Association, more than 80 percent of the law firm market is made up of solo practitioners or small firms.  “With few support staff and no IT departments, these professionals are often overwhelmed by the administrative side of their business,” said Clio CEO and Co-Founder, Jack Newton.  “With our cloud-based platform and Curo Legal’s broad offering of operational services, we can provide lawyers with all the tools they need to effectively manage their practices and build better client relationships. We’re looking forward to working closely with the Curo Legal team to help our clients stay on top of their practices and be more customer-focused than ever before.”

As the legal landscape continues to evolve and consumer behaviors change, law firms are adjusting their models to accommodate this paradigm shift.  “The future of the legal profession is such a hot topic,” said Chad Burton, co-founder of Curo Legal and founder of virtual law firm, Burton Law.  “Clio has been the hub for our virtual firm to manage our practice for several years.  We are excited to be able to help other firms, virtual or otherwise, achieve the same level of efficiency that Clio has helped us achieve, leading to greater profitability and growth for our firm.”
