Benefits of a modern client portal for your law firm.

Clients pay you to help navigate the intricate legal procedures and requirements associated with their legal cases, not for non-value-added admin work such as chasing documents or trawling through email inboxes to find information.

CLIENT COMMUNICATION

Still using email to exchange sensitive legal documents & information?

While email still has utility as a general comms tool, its usefulness for managing client workflows, such as onboarding or collecting client data and documents, has long expired.

Version Control Nightmare

Exchanging multiple versions of documents buried in emails can result in confusion, leading to mistakes and delays.

Massive Time Suck

Trawling through emails results in lost productivity and wasted time trying to locate specific information or attachments.

Lack of Encryption

Emails are not encrypted by default, which means they can be intercepted and read by unauthorized individuals.

Loss of Control

You don’t have control over how it is forwarded, saved, or shared, which can result in unintentional exposure of data.

Attachment Vulnerabilities

Email attachments have the potential to contain harmful malware or viruses that could infect the recipients’ systems.

Risk of Fines & Penalties

With the rise in privacy and data protection fines and legal actions, handling client files and data securely is more important than ever.

Maybe you left BigLaw to start a boutique law firm for a better work-life balance, a non-toxic culture, or other reasons. It was probably the best decision you’ve ever made, but no doubt you miss having an army of back-office support staff.

Top 3 reasons why law firms should adopt client portals

The pace of legaltech innovation continues to expand, introducing a myriad of new software offerings for practice, case, and contract management to law firms. The challenge for many law firms then becomes how to prioritize the technology investment budget to maximize the all-important ROI.

A common error among law firms is adopting a “bottoms-up” approach to technology, beginning by addressing internal processes as the starting point. This might seem logical, but the risk is that while building the technology stack, the client experience often becomes an afterthought, or forgotten entirely.

A more effective approach is to view technology enablement from a client-centric perspective. As the starting point, your firm should ask questions like ‘how can technology enhance our clients’ interactions with us?’ or ‘what is the optimal software solution to simplify our clients’ experience?’. Use that as the foundational tech layer, before solving for internal operational efficiency.

Introducing client portals

Establishing client portals is an effective method to enhance client experience and security using technology. Serving as a digital bridge between your firm and clients, these portals provide a secure platform for tasks such as gathering client data, sharing files, signing contracts digitally, and monitoring service requests.

Here are the top 3 reasons why law firms should adopt client portals.

#1 - Your clients have a central place to access important legal documents

Imagine it’s near midnight, and a client is urgently searching their email inbox for the final version of a legal document you drafted for them over a year ago. A client portal solves this issue by providing a central location for documents that are accessible around the clock.

#2 - It’s more secure than email

Email is now the default communication channel for most businesses – it’s simple and reliable. However, is it a trusted delivery tool for industries like legal services that handle a lot of sensitive information?

Consider the journey of a typical email. When you hit the ‘send’ button, the email and its attachments don’t just move from your inbox to the recipient’s. They travel across the internet, unguarded, and through multiple servers before reaching their destination. At each server transition, your email is at the mercy of server administrators who, in theory, could alter or even delete your email content.

We’re not suggesting that you should completely abandon emails. But client portals do offer a more secure way to exchange sensitive client information over the internet.

#3 - Data collection is easier and less prone to error

Using paper or PDF forms for client information collection and maintenance is not only inefficient but also prone to translation errors. Additionally, filling out static forms can be a tedious task. Modern client portals, such as Portalstack, incorporate smart digital forms. These interactive forms can be created dynamically, simplifying your data collection process and making it less tedious for your clients.

The bottom line

Portalstack’s client portal software solution deepens the connection between your clients and your firm by providing a unified, convenient space. This private area ensures both you and your clients feel secure, knowing that sensitive information is less susceptible to malicious interception.

Frequently asked questions

Is Portalstack also a legal case management software?

No. Legal case management software and client portals serve distinct purposes. While case management software is great for managing internal workflows, dedicated client portals like Portalstack serve as secure online platforms to interact with clients and securely exchange information.

Is there a charge for my clients to access?

No. You can add as many contacts as you want. We only charge you for internal users under your subscription.

How will my clients access the portal?

When you sign up to Portalstack, you’ll be assigned a unique login URL. This URL will be used by both your clients & partners, as well as internal users to login. We recommend you create a ‘Portal Login’ button on your website that links to this URL. Otherwise, you can always share this URL. 

How secure is the data?

We take data security seriously. Our platform is hosted on Amazon Web Services sitting behind their bank-grade infrastructure with 256-bit encryption. We’ve designed Portalstack with a security-first architecture. You can find out more by reading our Security Policy.

Do I need a PhD in quantum computing to get started?

No. Portalstack is a fully no-code solution – buzzword translation: no prior knowledge of IT is required.
