Clio Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

Clio’s SaaS-based practice management tools are suited for solicitors, barristers, and legal professionals that want to improve efficiencies within their practice and to improve external collaboration.

Clio Recent Developments

In October 2021, Clio launched the new Clio Payments platform, a foundational payments technology built for the legal industry's most advanced legal tech solution. Clio Payments enables lawyers to facilitate client-centered payment options, easing the billing and collections process while offering secure and compliant online payment choices for their clients.

In January 2019 Clio released Clio Grow, the company’s new client intake and legal customer relationship management (CRM) software. Together with Clio Manage, Clio’s existing practice management software, the two products form the Clio Suite, the legal industry’s most comprehensive end-to-end software solution focused on enhancing the client experience—which will shape the roadmap for development in the coming year. Based on Clio's ongoing research into the most pressing challenges faced by law firms today, it was clear that lawyers needed a solution to manage the entire client journey.

Clio acquired Lexicata in late 2018, which laid the foundation for Clio Grow and an end-to-end suite experience.

Clio Grow offers legal professionals a new way to organize, nurture, and acquire new clients from one convenient platform. By automating the intake process, legal professionals can deliver more personalized and efficient client experiences—while using advanced data reporting to determine their firm’s most valuable sources for new business.

In October 2017, Clio introduced the new Clio experience. Clio’s reinvention features over 220+ enhancements and incorporates nine years of customer feedback to further advance the leading practice management platform. One of its key focuses is Clio’s Campaign Tracker for law firms to track and convert leads while getting a better handle on new revenue opportunities, marketing initiative expenses as well as campaign ROI.

Clio Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In November 2021, Clio unveiled a significant expansion to its executive leadership team, including a new Chief Operating Officer, Chief People Officer, Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Marketing Officer. This new structure will see the C-suite double in size and bring on new leaders from high growth stage and public companies, while also further leveraging the tenure and deep experience of existing engineering and marketing leads.

In April 2021, Clio announced a new valuation of US$1.6B after raising US$110M in its Series E. The funding round was led by funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates and also included OMERS Growth Equity.

In October 2018, Clio acquired Lexicata, legal client intake, and client relationship management (CRM) solution. Clio’s acquisition of Lexicata is a defining moment for the legal industry. As long-time integration partners, with more than half of Lexicata’s existing customer base already using Clio, the two companies have already been working together to meet the different needs of law firms.

Clio Risks and Challenges

Clio’s attempts to disrupt the legal practice management applications market with Cloud-only products are going to be tested by escalating Cloud push by deep-pocketed incumbents such as Thomson Elite. A price war could ensue.

Clio Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
