Contract Attorney Case Management

Contract attorney case management software from LegalServer simplifies interaction with outside counsel and private assigned counsel.

Also referred to as Managed Assigned Counsel, Alternate Defense Counsel, Appointed Counsel, or Panel Attorney, LegalServer provides a comprehensive set of tools to manage activities, time and expenses with contract/private attorneys, third party investigators and experts.

Manage important information about each contract attorney or outside expert, including the types of cases handled, number of cases taken, cases open, time spent, billing and communications.

Leverage the robust built-in reporting to get real time views into contract attorney activity. With role based permissions controlled by the organization, a contract attorney can use the system as their own CMS if needed, only seeing the cases they are assigned.
