Workflow on a Multidisciplinary Legal Practice
Automate your entire workflow across multiple practicing groups
Here at Legalboards, we’re receiving many questions about more complex workflows, mainly when the law office or the legal department deals with different practicing areas.
Generally, we recommend that you have separate boards for each legal team, practicing area, and also general management boards, such as the billing cycles, intake process, etc.
When you try to have a unified workflow in some offices, you risk making your board too complicated or too generic, and it becomes difficult to sense process improvements both ways.
If you’re using Legalboards as your agile legal management platform, your boards can interact with each other.
Example Use Case: Legal work + Billing
You can create a column called “billing” at your legal workflow, and you can set an automation that creates a new card on a second board to let only the administrative staff know this case needs to have the invoice sent. When the other team member finishes the billing process, another automation can return the card to the ‘completed’ column on the legal workflow.
Our tool can help you automate your entire workflow across multiple practicing groups and even external stakeholders. Let us know if you have another example of how to use this automation, and we can add it to this content.
