Winner of 2019 of Solicitors' Software Awards - as voted by ILFM Member software users…….

Insight Legal

Legal Accounts is an area so specialised that it forms part of a solicitor’s training. Law firms have to handle client money and pay for services on behalf of clients. In addition they must ensure they comply with the Law Society Rules or SRA Accounts Rules applicable to their area. General accounting systems simply don’t handle these things well, if at all.

Lawman Practice Management System

Timeslice is a leading supplier of integrated legal software for Solicitors. Today Lawman is available as a conventional locally hosted system or as a fully private cloud hosted system. Our flagship product, Lawman is an integrated practice, document, email and workflow management system.

Our users include Top 100, Legal 500 and many leading regional practices

Indigo Financial Centre

Every firm of solicitors in England and Wales should ideally have one of their account’s team as an ILFM Member.   The outlay is an asset to any legal firm (£120 + VAT per year) owing to the professionalism being a member brings - the knowledge and support you will receive is invaluable.  Obviously, COFAs have their own individual challenges, which is why we have specific training for the professionals in the role of the Compliance Officer for Financial and Administration.  

Keeping our members and their respective firms updated with leading software news and awards is important - we want the very best for legal finance professionals to be able to feel secure and compliant, knowing the software they use makes their daily lives easier and safer.
