SimpleLegal’s event management: Reducing risk, one event at a time

Alaina Lui | March 25, 2024 | Articles

In the deadline-driven landscape of legal proceedings, staying on top of critical dates and events isn’t just a luxury, it’s an absolute necessity. Legal teams juggle numerous matters, each with its own jurisdiction, set of deadlines, court dates, and filing requirements. Failure to manage these events effectively can lead to severe consequences such as case dismissal, attorney sanctions, and even lawsuits. Recognizing the pressing need for a comprehensive solution, SimpleLegal is proud to announce the launch of our latest innovation, event management – now a part of our matter management solution.

Changing the status quo

Traditional matter management solutions often fall short when it comes to event management. Tasks and events are often lumped together, leading to important deadlines being treated as mere items on a checklist. SimpleLegal disrupts this stale approach by providing a dedicated event management feature that brings critical dates and events to the forefront. We understand that event deadlines are more than just tasks—they are the heart of legal proceedings.
