Q: “What is Matter Management?”
Matter management involves managing the activities related to running matter in in-house legal practice. This predominantly involves:
- The intake of internal client requests,
- Triaging those requests and assigning to the appropriate person to manage it,
- Communication with internal clients,
- Enabling internal clients to self-serve and access legal advice more efficiently,
- Tracking responsibility and minimising the risk of missing key deadlines or important events,
- Legal document management,
- Structuring the legal department’s information so you can make data-driven decisions and forecasts.
In LawVu, Matter Management is what we built the platform on, and we refer to it as our “Core Module”.
LawVu matter management empowers in-house legal departments to show what you are doing, do it more efficiently, and quantify your value to the business, all from one connected platform.

Q: “What is Contract Management?”
Our clients told us that they need a single, connected platform for managing contracts and matters, to enable General Counsel to see a unified view of “all things legal”.
For this reason, we built a dedicated Contract Management module with the functionality an in-house legal team requires.
The Contract Management module is distinct but connected to the Matter Management system in LawVu.
Our mission is to empower in-house legal departments to show what you are doing, do it more efficiently, and quantify your value to the business, all from one connected platform.
