Frequently asked questions
What is Microsoft 365, and how does it help a personal injury law firm better manage its practice?

Microsoft Teams provides group chat and collaboration.
Microsoft Word allows you to create, view, edit and collaborate on documents.
Microsoft Excel allows you to create and view spreadsheets, charts, and tables.
Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to create presentations, from project plans to legal plans to meeting agendas.
Outlook is a versatile tool; it helps you send, receive, and manage email, along with managing your contact database and calendar, which can be shared and accessible across your law firm.
OneNote is a tool to create, store and manage case notes, legal research, and miscellaneous information that doesn’t fit well anywhere else, firm-wide, team-wide, or even case-specific.

How secure are cloud solutions like Microsoft 365 for law firms?
It is every law firm’s commitment and responsibility to keep their legal and client data secure. As compared to the old, on-premise/server-based systems, cloud-based platforms like Microsoft 365 certainly offer more for data security and secure cloud based legal software.
According to the American Bar Association :
“Modern encryption has progressed to the point where it is unbreakable. Cloud companies understand that their reputations for protecting customer information are crucial. A single security breach would cost them dearly. Your client information is more secure stored on a reputable, professionally managed cloud server than on your office computers.”
With Microsoft 365, you get world-class cloud infrastructure and security.
How does Microsoft 365 integrated with CloudLex benefit your law firm?
In present times, when personal injury law firms are moving away from on-premise server-based systems and moving to cloud-based personal injury case management software, Microsoft Office 365, in particular, is the one common name that every lawyer and law firm staff knows about and uses.
And as you all, in your legal profession, have used this in one or many ways, you probably know why Microsoft Office 365 is essential to a firm’s daily operations for law firms. Gone are the days of managing legal practices with paper files and inefficient processes; they have been replaced with more collaborative, secured, well-managed, and encrypted document management tools like OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook , Office 365 Calendar, Microsoft Teams, and many other Microsoft suites of business tools.
But, you need to make the most of your Office 365 tools by molding them to make them more matter centric so they can help you simplify your legal matter management process; that is where CloudLex comes in. By seamlessly integrating CloudLex and Microsoft Office 365 , you can mold Microsoft 365 in the way your law firm works—so you can better manage contacts, calendars, law firm communications, and more.
Once you integrate CloudLex with your Microsoft 365 suite, any event added to your calendar in CloudLex will auto-sync to your Office 365 Calendar, Outlook emails and contacts will automatically sync with CloudLex, and your email groups created in Outlook can be used while sending a group email through CloudLex.
In addition, whenever you send an email through CloudLex, it will reflect your Outlook email address as the sender, not the CloudLex-generated email id.
