Importance of Bookkeeping in Legal
Bookkeeping for Legal Service Can Feel Like a Never-Ending Deposition

Just when you think it's over, there's more to uncover. We’ve seen legal companies face the following challenges:

Billing Management

Some clients prefer flat fees, while others prefer hourly billing; tracking time and billing for these clients separately is a challenge for legal service providers, especially if multiple timekeepers work on a matter or the client has a request for a specific LEDES format.

Managing Cash Flow

Ensuring enough cash is available to cover expenses, such as salaries, rent, and other overhead costs, while also maintaining adequate reserves to fund future growth and investments. Failure to manage cash flow effectively can result in financial instability or even bankruptcy.

Client-Wise Revenue

Determining when revenue should be recognized can be complicated, particularly if there are multiple phases or milestones in a matter. Additionally, ensuring that revenue is correctly allocated to each client is a challenge.

Calculating Client Profitability

Determining the profitability of each client requires separate account handling for each client. This can be more challenging if there are multiple clients involved in a matter or if the expenses are shared between multiple matters.

Escrow/Trust Accounting

Maintaining accurate records for trust accounts and ensuring compliance with trust accounting rules is a pain for legal service businesses, especially when the account is used for several client matters.

Managing Vendor Payments

Legal service providers often work with a variety of vendors, including software providers, office supply companies, and other service providers. Keeping track of all vendor invoices and payments can be a time-consuming and complex process.
