Schiff Hardin automates court notice workflow with ECFX

US national firm Schiff Hardin has gone live on ECFX Notice, which automates the electronic court notice workflow. The 250-lawyer firm, which practices across many federal and state jurisdictions, says it was looking to ECFX to help manage the challenges arising from the differences between court systems, as well as to create efficiencies more generally. 

ECFX Notice connects each case to an internal client and matter number and downloads each document associated with the notice. It profiles each document to the firm’s DMS and determines the relevant parties to notify based on information in the financial and case management systems.  

Michael King, Schiff Hardin’s director of loss prevention and office support services said, “We are always looking to use the right resource and the right expertise on internal and client facing issues. With that as a guiding principle, we wanted to use technology more efficiently where we were using highly skilled, highly paid individuals to do a lot of data entry. ECFX Notice provided us that opportunity.” 

He adds: “ECFX eliminates the need for cross training for court notices in the different jurisdictions. The solution also provides a dashboard of customizable analytics, allowing legal professionals to gain visibility into notice management, review progress and manage staff resources as needed.  

“ECFX allows our attorneys to focus on what is important to our clients vs time consuming data entry,” said King.  

ECFX was founded last year by by legal technology industry veterans Dan O’Day, Nelson Quintero and Bill Burch and ECFX Notice is its first product – launched in January at Legaltech New York.

At the start of July, the company announced that Ted Kukorowski has joined as director of sales. Prior to ECFX, Kukorowski spent 14 years as the director of sales for DocsCorp.
