Company & Product Overview

Select Legal Systems is a specialist provider of legal practice management software for law firms.

Its flagship product, LAWFUSION – which is the system of choice for over 160 law firms across the UK - delivers everything from legal accounts software and time recording to case management and marketing software for lawyers.

You can find a selection of case study videos on Select's website - www.selectlegal.co.uk.

LAWFUSION is flexible, intuitive and excellent value for money and is available as a hosted solution for the cloud or as a traditional on-premise installation.

With Select's cloud based option (LAWFUSION Direct), law firms get a full suite of practice management software as well as all the fully integrated Microsoft Office and Exchange products running from the LAWFUSION cloud. But if having the software on your own inhouse servers works better for you – Select Legal can deliver an on-premise option instead. In fact Select Legal has hundreds of happy users in both camps using LAWFUSION to run and grow their businesses.

Choosing between a cloud or on-premise set up is a unique decision for every law firm. Select has produced a film “Cloud vs On-Premise” featuring client interviews to help you make the right decision for your Practice. You can view this video on the Select Legal website - www.selectlegal.co.uk.

However, it is as much about the people as it is the technology itself and Select's award-winning support is recognised as amongst the best in the industry. The two Director/owners of the business Steve Dixon and Mike Craven have over 70+ years combined experience in legal software and most of team have been with the company 10 years or more.


Target Markets

LAWFUSION was originally designed for the 30-100 user law firm, however, Select Legal Systems has moved forward in line with market demand and now offers different versions for different sized law firms.

For example the largest LAWFUSION site has over 250 users and the ‘Small Firm’ and ‘Solo’ editions are available for growing law firms and start ups.

• LAWFUSION Standard - Designed specifically for the larger and / or multi-branch law firm
• LAWFUSION Small Firm - Providing all of the rich functionality of the standard edition, but specially packaged for the small but growing law firm
• LAWFUSION Solo - A single user system, ideal for the sole practitioner or start up firm

LAWFUSION is also a popular choice with ABSs (Alternative Business Structures).
