Learn how to get your attorneys to enter their time, on time, all of the time.

Ahhh, timekeeping policies. We all have them. We have them because they are effective at getting our attorneys to comply. Timekeeping policies are great.

Wait, what? 

If the above statement makes you cringe a little bit, because it isn’t completely true in your firm, don’t worry. You’re not alone. 90% of law firms struggle with time entry. Despite clear-cut policies that require attorneys to enter their time daily, weekly, monthly or whatever the case may be, time entries are submitted late and after a significant amount of teeth-pulling. 

So, which type of firm are you? Are you the firm whose attorneys are not compliant and recreate their time forensically? Or, are you the firm that we all strive to be - the firm that keeps its time contemporaneously?
