Unlock your team’s potential
There’s not always time to reflect when your law firm is constantly on the move. Smokeball legal reporting software gives you powerful tools to easily manage your team’s productivity and become more effective.
Work remotely without missing a beat
Side-by-side work isn’t always possible, or best. Smokeball’s matter reporting shows your whole team who’s doing what, when, and on which case. Keep on top of your deadlines with area-of-law-specific reporting that shows every upcoming court date and settlement date; statues of limitations; and matters with no activity in a certain time period.
Understand where your firm’s time goes
Without desk-side check-ins, how can you be sure everyone’s on-task? Smokeball Law Firm Insights use automatic time tracking to break down per-earner activity. Gain better visibility into your most productive employees — and those who need support.
Plan and prioritize your firm’s cases more effectively
Put the right people on the right cases, and easily identify any risks or blockages with Law Firm Insights.
