Practice Management: Taxing times
It is high time that law firms began to add value to their practice management systems - and taxonomies are a good place to start, says Chris Wallis
A practice management system (PMS) is the digital home of a law firm’s clients and matters. From the inception of each matter through to its closure, a variety of personnel – partners, fee earners, secretaries, accounting and marketing staff – may work on the matter, or at least require access to data related to it. These people perform different functions, have different business vocabularies and different information requirements. Consequently, user demands on the PMS are many and varied.
