Watch: 6 1/2 Legal Accounting Resolutions for the New Year

Lawyers are lucky that casework has deadlines. We wish we could say the same thing about accounting. Although cases usually get closed on time, most law firm books are full of open issues that never seem to go away.

With this New Year’s resolution, 2017 can be different. Well, actually, there are six…and a half. In this video, we’ll review what sets legal accounting apart from other industries, identify the six most important practices your office should be following to ensure your accounting is accurate and compliant, and discuss how to begin implementing these practices at your law firm. Setting resolutions can be tough, but we’re here to help you get started.

Learning Objectives:

  •  Uncover the three foundations of legal accounting
  •  Implement the 6 1/2 law firm accounting resolutions for 2017 and beyond
  •  Discover the benefits of integrated accounting within your practice management systems
