Benefits of LawKPIs – Some of our exclusive Reports, out of many that are being used by our clients –

       1. Fee Allocation Report

       2. Attorney Utilization Report

       3. Profitability Report

       4. Realization Report

       5. WIP and Trust Report

1. Fee Allocation Report – Our fee allocation report best answers the question “What did we bill last month?” relative to what was collected. Fee allocation is set per invoice and automatically calculates based on the rules you’ve set globally and per matter. (Source) The best news? LawKPIs allows you to set different percentages for different attorneys for every matter. Expenses are always paid first and then the amount is allocated based on the percentages specified:

In one report, you’ll be able to immediately see the sum of:

  • Billed flat fees

  • Total hours billed

  • Total billed time entries.

  • Total expenses for the entire case (no matter who entered the expenses)

  • Total fees collected based on the percentage of work completed

  • Write offs, credit notes and partial payments

2. Attorney Utilization Rate Report – Calculating utilization rates gives lawyers the important data and insights they need to make informed business decisions. For example, you can use utilization rates to better understand the profitability potential for different legal services.

Utilization rates can also provide insight into resource allocation. For example, if an attorney’s utilization rate is quite high, they might need more resources and support. A utilization rate that’s continually close to 100% suggests that staff are overworked and potentially close to burnout. If this is the case for you, it’s an indication that it might be time to hire new people. If you have a utilization rate above 100%, that’s usually indicative of too much out-of-scope work or poor planning.

3. Profitability ReportA firm’s profit per employee is calculated by identifying the revenue generated by every attorney minus sum of all the costs (fixed and variable) associated with the firm Individual attorney’s revenue is the collected amount for activities done for the matters The cost per attorney is sum of all the costs divided by no. of attorneys/employees in the law firm.

Compare your attorney’s performance and analyse the profit generated by them towards the firm over the year to understand the return on talent.

LawKPIs ‘Profitability by Attorney’ report helps in analyzing firm’s profit by each attorney. To toggle between the chart and tabular data of any attorney and to view the profits thereby earned, becomes so handy for the lawyers with the Profitability dashboard in LawKPIs reporting solution.

Just as how you access the Profitability by Month data by applying filters, similarly, get any data for the year of your choice along with the month and the name of the attorney, respectively. A clear detailed Profitability by Attorney data is right at your finger tip. Reset the data and return to dashboard to get back to the original data.

We help attorneys who are or were spending long hours in the office, often sacrificing personal and family life., but without a decent return in billable hours. LawKPIs ‘Profitability by Attorney’ report helps in calculating profits the firm is making from each attorney.

4. Realization Rate Report – Realization rate is an advanced approach to calculate the efficiency and productivity of a firm as compared to other metrics.

Every law firm would like to know how its employees are performing. Professional service organizations specifically need to calculate the realization rates so that they know their efficiency levels. The realization rate also helps a firm to account for its non-billable working hours. Once it calculates all the available hours, it would then account for the actual billed hours.

This approach would create a cushion for non-billed hours. Using this approach, a firm would then adjust its profit margins and improve internal efficiency. Assigning the right employees for the right job increases efficiency and the realization rate effectively. The realization rate is a percentage term that refers to the billed hours earned against the total billable work hours, called as Billing realization. In practice, the realization rate is the ratio of the revenue received against the revenue earned by a company, called as Collection realization. Therefore, the realization rate is also important efficiency and revenue metric. It indicates the percentage of realized revenue against the total earned income.

5. WIP and Trust Report – Trust accounting is arguably one of the most fraught and complex concerns of every law firm.

The challenge of safeguarding and protecting client funds, while also sheltering your attorneys and your firm from the extremely serious consequences of improperly managed trust (and any hint of impropriety) is not easy. Client funds do not belong to you or your firms…You must segregate them from firm funds.

For example, Attorney John C. Drapp discovered that a trust account report could be generated directly from Clio, but that it was a bit clunky. “What is needed for three-way reconciliations as required by the grievance committee is a list of the balances for all matters of funds held in trust as of the end of the month,” he said.  “In other words, showing what the balance was as of 7/31, then showing, in each matter, debits and credits for the month of August along with a closing balance on 8/31.”

LawKPIs makes it simple and easy to achieve this level of analysis.

LawKPIs was created to streamline law firm analytics from multiple sources to eliminate manual report creation and give you back your time. In addition to three-point reconciliations, LawKPIs is capable of using different percentages for different attorneys for every matter.
