Law offices and legal departments work with countless documents every day: case records, writs, pleadings, patents, contracts and mandate files. And even though digital transformation is in full swing in the law sector as well, the amount of paper involved in the total volume of documents will remain high.

Is your law office also caught in the crossfire between competitive pressure, increasing number of legal service providers and stricter compliance regulations for security, archiving and auditing?

It’s time to rethink things. Meet the need for fast case processing, short reaction times to client enquiries and transparent accounting models by efficiently working with documents across multiple formats with ABBYY FineReader, the all-in-one OCR and PDF solution.
