Free tools and assistance during COVID-19: Legatics, Avvoka, ActionStep and Tikit

The legal tech sector continues to rally to overcome the challenges presented by COVID-19, with a further raft of vendors offering customers free tools and services to help users survive COVID-19.

Legatics, is offering all new customers full access to its entire platform for free for the next six months, and is rolling-out free webinar training for both existing and prospective customers.

New customers will have full access to Legatics’ entire suite of deal management tools, including its checklist, bibling, issues list, KYC, and signing and completion modules, for free until 30 September 2020.  With law firms and their clients facing unprecedented disruption to how they typically manage and close their deals, Legatics hopes its offer will ease the burden on lawyers and their clients working remotely by providing greater collaboration and coordination on their deals.

Daniel Porus, chief commercial officer at Legatics, said: “We are mindful that during these unprecedented times, a wholesale shift to remote working has put a strain on core IT infrastructure for law firms and their clients, and added challenges to coordinating remote teams.  We have received feedback from existing customers that Legatics has helped.  Therefore, we want to ensure existing customers can take full advantage of Legatics and that other firms have the opportunity to see the benefits for themselves without incurring additional costs in what is already a financially challenging time for businesses.  As a SaaS company, Legatics can quickly onboard new customers in time for any upcoming deals.”

ActionStep is offering its online legal practice management express product for free for six months. It is purely for firms who do not have a PMS or have desktop software that they are struggling to run remotely. There is no set up cost required, and firms can get their data extracted for free if they do not want to continue with us after the period ends. Express has case management, document management, email management (+integrations), task management and data collection features. There are also billing and client accounting features but vice president James Shorey said: “We don’t advise firms taking us up on the free offer to connect to one of our accounting integrations as to not confuse their finances.” For more information see:
