Since the incorporation of White Star Web Solutions, we have taken up various tech and web related projects. However, we saw a need of having a product of our own. While we were cracking ideas, we needed some legal consultation on a certain matter and the process we had to go through ignited a spark. We realized how the manual process is quite inefficient and if it was fixed, how it could save time not only for the client but also create an opportunity for Lawyers to generate more revenue as well.
At this point we decided this would be a great opportunity for us to come up with a solution. We researched more on this topic and understood that Legal Practice Management Systems is a concept that is heavily invested on by many other developed as well as developing countries.
With Sri Lanka’s trends of embracing digital technologies, this seemed a very attractive area to be in. Thus further research began.
After four years of research, interviews, feedback, positive and negative criticism and development and testing, we now finally have a market ready version of Legistant, built along with the support of Sri Lankan legal professionals. We managed to localize a concept that’s out there in the world and make it an accessible technology for the lawyers of Sri Lanka.
We’re proud to say that it is for the very first time a cloud-based system of this nature is being introduced into the Sri Lankan market as a solution for legal professionals. A system where you can take your physical practice into the cloud and take your work along with you wherever you go.
Legistant allows lawyers to securely store details about any client case, for example it could be a court case or non-court activity like a land deed. As the case progresses they can add case updates, which is a chronological series of updates on how the case has progressed. This is especially useful to track long running cases, especially to help lawyers keep clients up to date with progress of the case and the clients can be given access to case updates if the lawyer wishes to do so. Case management also helps you keep track of things like court visits, and statute of limitations, so that you never miss a deadline.
Over the years, we consulted many lawyers and got input from them when developing this system. Some common issues they had were efficiently managing multiple clients and multiple cases. Scheduling appointments is another cumbersome activity where at certain instances you miss some scheduled appointments or at times there are overlapping appointments. With Legistant’s task management system these problems are solved. But we are more than just a task manager.
We have a secure document and evidence management system that allows lawyers to save their client documents, highly confidential evidence and so on. The information is secured with high grade security measures that makes their information inaccessible to an unauthorized party while being stored or while in transit to and from storage.
Another major concern lawyers have is time. A lawyer’s day is filled with appointments, consultations and court visits. The manual system and processes are very time consuming for both lawyers and their assistants. However, with Legistant, most activities are made simpler with ready made forms and tasks that could be carried out at the click of a button. Taking down updates and notes is much easier because you can carry your entire practice with you and work on the go. It is basically a system that allows lawyers to manage time and make the most out of that time whether its leisure or more income. After all we all have only 24 hours a day and it’s all about how you manage that 24 hours
