The traditional law firm modus operandi is to set up systems, and then contour their technology to long-established processes. But, since most small law firms are buying off-the-shelf software (in lieu of costlier, tailor-made alternatives), the software they purchase is not built for their systems — rather, their systems must be retrofitted to their software.
