About Us

Legal First people have developed and deployed many practice software solutions over the past thirty years. This applies to the small and largest of installations.

We have, collectively, over 150 years combined experience supplying and implementing solutions for law firms.

In addition, our technologists have the skills necessary covering the Microsoft suite of software together with in depth knowledge of the current Hosting and Cloud options available that complement our software.

As a team, we are able to assist and advise our clients with all deliverables where any new infrastructure environment or decommissioning is needed. We co-exist with the firms’ incumbent suppliers to address all legacy technology issues and integrations that form part of the composition of any new solution.

Our trainers are experienced in all current practice management software deployed in law firms and easily relate the old functionality of legacy systems to compare with the new functions applicable in Legal First.

We use recognised project methodologies with our new implementation roll outs.

The Legal First team offers a mature voice in the Australian, Singapore and New Zealand legal market-places.
