Review of Centerbase (Next-Generation Practice Management)

By TechnoLawyer | Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Coming today to SmallLaw: We have witnessed The Innovator’s Dilemma over the past 10 years as startups wooed tens of thousands of lawyers to cloud practice management software without much of a fight from the companies behind legacy products.

One such product is Centerbase. Does it deliver? Find out in this review by lawyer and legal technology consultant Seth Rowland.
