Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
The everyday administrative chores of a law practice demand a lot of an attorney’s time, but Velawsity™ is aiming to change that with the launch of a unique digital lawyer tool this week. Velawsity has its sights on a rather specific inefficiency in the practice of law encountered by a growing number of sole practitioners. The technology is focused on the intelligent manipulation of critical data to render the amount of time an attorney must spend on routine, non-billable -- albeit necessary -- tasks almost negligible.
Designed by a team of lawyers, the cloud-based software is engineered to boost lawyer efficiency, encourage compliance and simplify attorney-client communication. The flagship version of the product features digital engagement, cloud-based conflict checking and seamless attorney-client communication modules.
“The migration of the law practice to the cloud is inescapable,“ says Karnig Kerkonian, co-founder of Velawsity and one of the lawyers on the design team. “Velawsity delivers the cloud to the entrepreneurial lawyer in an experience that is meaningfully simple, seamless and intuitive.”
While the goal is to free the lawyer from the burden of manual administrative chores related to client and matter management, Velawsity envisions having a transformative impact on the economics of the delivery of legal services as well.
“Rather than trying to replace the lawyer with online legal forms or lawyerless legal advice tools,” says Rudy Minasian, one of the company’s founders. “Velawsity has designed a structured platform tailored to the matter management aspect of a law practice.”
The technology will enable lawyers to furnish legal services at rates not fattened by the cost of expensive overhead while increasing their own profitability margins. It may very well end traditional barriers to entry into private practice, because the lawyer is now empowered with sophisticated management and communication tools that streamline the administrative requirements of a law practice. In designing the platform, Velawsity leveraged lawyer input at every stage in order to create a product that can be driven by lawyer intuition, rather than learned through webinars and seminars.
To learn more or to become one of Velawsity’s lawyer input resources, interested attorneys may soon sign up for a free beta trial by visiting http://www.velawsity.com. Velawsity is slated to beta launch at the ReInvent Law Conference in Silicon Valley on Friday, March 8, 2013.
