Matter management

Increase visibility, reduce risk and boost productivity with more effective matter management.

You can't do your best work with scattered data, overflowing inboxes, and admin overhead. Get control with a comprehensive, easily configurable matter management solution.

“We were attracted to LawVu as it's built specifically for in-house legal teams, rather than private practice. Everyone in the legal team is using LawVu now.

Before LawVu, there was a significant risk around documentation -- it was scattered throughout emails. I now have a much more robust record of what's happening, and LawVu has reduced our exposure for not having complete matters.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is in-house legal matter management software?

Just as a CRM is integral to marketing or sales, in-house legal matter management software provides the same level of importance to legal functions. Thinking of a matter as the core of your legal work, legal matter management software encompasses every aspect of operating an in-house legal function, from how you and your team approach new tasks to how you evaluate and collaborate on the work at hand.

This includes:

  • 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 minimizing 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

Without it, your department may experience a sense of chaos. But that’s not to say all matter management solutions are created equal. To learn more about how the right in-house legal matter management software can optimize the efficiency of your legal operations, click here.


What is the difference between case management and matter management?

Case management is commonly utilized to handle the substantial volume of paperwork associated with litigation, providing a method to file and store documents for each case. Whereas, matter management is specifically tailored to meet the needs of in-house legal functions.

Matter management takes into account the diverse and extensive activities carried out and the oversight required by an in-house legal team, both internally and when collaborating with outside counsel.

What makes LawVu different from other matter management systems?

LawVu is a cloud-based platform built to give busy legal departments a clearer view of legal operations in their organization. It's highly configurable, easy to use, and fast to implement without high overhead, unlike more traditional systems.

LawVu matter management is unique because it's part of a legal workspace, a complete end-to-end system supporting your matters, contracts, and spend management, which you can either implement at once, or add over time as you scale.


What makes LawVu’s matter management system so easy to use?

When new technology projects fail to deliver value quickly, your busy legal team pays the price. LawVu’s approach to implementation delivers fast time-to-value and long term ROI in two ways: our foundational design and our unique, customized approach.

Even with LawVu’s advanced workspace, there’s nothing to be afraid of when it comes to implementation, no matter how complex your needs may be. We make it easy for you to start and easy for you to make your own. You can be up and running on day one with out-of-the-box configurations, or if you require a more bespoke configuration that’s fine too - we’ll work with you!


Does LawVu matter management integrate with contracts?
