Frequently Asked Questions

What is trust accounting software?

Trust accounting software helps law firms comply with rules that many legal jurisdictions have in place regarding the accounting of funds held in trust on behalf of a legal client.

What are the basics of trust accounting compliance?

The fundamental aspects of a lawyer’s duty when it comes to handling client funds include:

  • Identification: Depositing funds into an account specifically labelled as a trust account.
