For Barristers in Chambers
Briefed is not a Chambers Management System (CMS). It is not a replacement for MLC or Lex. In fact it sits comfortably alongside existing chambers management products helping chambers be more profitable.
Briefed was built with the barrister in mind. Chambers Management Systems are designed to give chambers staff a system to help run an entire chambers. However a lot of barristers find themselves continuing to do their job without access to barrister-friendly tools which would help them on a day to day basis do things such as manage their time, their case deadlines, their paperwork or their own finances. Consequently, although chambers takes care of generating work and collecting fees, a chambers barrister can still find themselves feeling disorganised, under pressure and often not as efficient as they would like to be. Which means chambers is less efficient too.
Briefed can help barristers be more efficient, and therefore help chambers be more profitable.
Briefed gives the barrister and his Clerk access to simple tools which helps them record information and communicate meaning they can both do their job more quickly and easily - allowing time for new briefs.
Be more profitable.
Using Briefed a barrister can record all time spent working on a case at the touch of a button while at home, or at Court, and his clerk can view this back at chambers, at any time.
