Legal Forms Software

Digital technology has replaced paper-heavy, process-driven working practices, and new solutions have allowed modern firms to reduce both the burden of non-billable administration tasks and overhead costs.

Our Legal Forms software, Cloud Forms, takes the trusted functionality of our market-leading Laserform and OyezForms desktop applications and combines them with Cloud technology. This has created one single application that’s filled with beneficial features, including the preparation of forms for both paper and digital submission.




Understanding key issues


Systems integration

Working with multiple, independent systems can mean user errors, incorrect document versions, duplication of work and a lack of comprehensive business reporting

Gaining efficiency

In order to balance client requirements with available resources, legal practitioners need extra time and more cost-efficient ways of working

Meeting compliance requirements

Law firms capture, process and store a lot of personal client data. Systems that remove the risk of a data breach by forcing best practice are crucial to on-going success.


The 24-7 economy is now a reality and busy legal practitioners require fast, flexible access to information and documents whether they are in the office, at home or on the move.


Law firms can be the target for criminals who want access to the sensitive information and funds they hold. Sourcing systems that offer optimum levels of protection is key.

Changing customer behaviour

Modern, digitally aware consumers are happy to shop around for legal services. Law firms need technologies that will help them react quickly to meet client expectations.
