Practice Management Software for Intellectual Property Attorneys
There are hundreds of moving parts with intellectual property prosecution and litigation. CARET Legal was designed to connect every action taken in every case and break down the information silos that result from disparate practice management and accounting systems.
Our end-to-end platform is complete with all the matter-centric tools your front office needs to be more efficient, collaborative and profitable, and all of the billing, accounting and reporting tools your back office needs to process payments, balance the books and make better data-driven decisions.
IP Litigation Calendaring
Rules-based calendaring eliminates manual calculation of deadlines and rule monitoring. CARET Legal’s integration with LawToolBox allows your firm to calculate deadlines based on federal court regulations.* These deadlines are automatically placed on your CARET Legal calendar along with customizable reminders, reducing the risk that a deadline will be missed.
