Clio Now Integrates with Google Drive

Earlier today, I published a post about the recently released ABA Legal Technology Survey’s findings on blogs and social media. A separate part of that survey looked at lawyers’ use of web-based software, more commonly referred to these days as “the cloud.” Interestingly, the highest usage of cloud-based applications is among solo and small-firm attorneys, according to the survey. When asked which cloud-based applications they used, the second most common answer they gave was Clio, the cloud-based practice management application. (Respondents chose from a list of applications; the top three were Google Docs at 46%, Clio at 12% and RocketMatter at 5%.)

Create, access and store documents on Google Drive from within Clio.

Well, as of today, those Clio users have a new feature to take advantage of. This morning, Clio announced full integration with Google Drive, a feature that promises to facilitate the creation and sharing of documents among lawyers and their clients.

This means that users will be able to take advantage of the features of Google Drive directly from within Clio. They can create documents, associate them with matters, and share and collaborate on them with others. They can also use Google Drive features such as full-text search and OCR recognition.

Earlier this year, Clio announced that it had raised $6 million in financing. Based in Vancouver, B.C., the company was founded in 2007 by Jack Newton and Rian Gauvreau. It was the first of the increasingly popular field of cloud-based practice management applications.

  1. I have moved back to using Amicus attorney as my law partner and his staff have been using it for many years and I felt it was the best way to integrate our offices. Previous to that I was using Clio and really liked it, they still have a ways to go but I think they are far and away one of the best law firm management programs, especially for a solo. Their integration with Dropbox and now Google Drive shows their willingness to be on the cutting edge and not afraid to share software platforms.
