Why Smokeball?

What is the best law firm software?

Smokeball was founded by Australian technology leaders with over 25 years of experience in delivering impactful legal technology products. If your firm is looking to become more organised, productive and profitable, you’ll find our legal practice management software to be the best on the market. Why?

Legal software to help you bill more, without your clients paying more

It sounds impossible, but it's true. The combination of Smokeball's best in class productivity features with our unique law firm automatic time tracking will increase your billings and your client's satisfaction - no matter how you bill.

Multiple large-scale studies have shown that the average firm is only billing 2.02 hours per fee earner per day. With AutoTime, Smokeball’s automatic time tracking technology, firms are billing 4.1 hours per fee earner per day on average. This equates to an additional $135k per fee earner annually.

For your fixed fee work, AutoTime interacts with the law firm KPI dashboard to reveal which matters and clients are profitable and show opportunities to focus on your best work.
