As we say in our Legal Tech Guide, law firm Knowledge Management (KM) is about the organization of company information and files. This means business info, HR info, client info, and any other information that a law firm collects, stores, reviews, or interacts with. All law firms have KM systems. Unfortunately, many firms have a helter-skelter implementation. All too often they simply claim, “well, this is how my mind works.” Or, “the system works for me.” Commonly, however, a significant amount of time is wasted finding or recreating information.

Automations can be a great help to any law firm. They can reduce errors, decrease needed effort, and even manage workflows. Yet, most offices don’t automate as effectively as they would like. Often, they are overwhelmed by the possibilities or don’t know where to start. Although they can get complex, firms only need to create basic automations to realize the benefits. Something as simple as filing an email can save hours of work. And products like Gmail and Outlook are making it easier and easier to do so.
