Complaints and responses

Legal extranets don't need to be overly complex if this does not meet any client needs. It very well could be that you have a client that simply wishes to see the basic documents associated with a litigation: complaints, responses, case management orders, etc...

If this is the case, a law firm extranet can be created solely for this purpose. This helps clients see the basic documents they need to see during the course of managing several litigating.

Of course, once a client sees this functionality, it is not unreasonable to expect they might want to manage their tasks, meetings or case management information with similar law firm extranet technology in the near future!

The lesson to be learned here is that it is important your legal extranet software be designed in a component basis manner, that is, one can easily plug in one, many or all components to provide clients with exactly the type and scope system implementation which meets the unique needs of their organization.
