The modern legal landscape demands agility, not inertia. Client expectations are soaring, competition is fierce, and the need to adapt is constant. Yet, traditional legal practice management (LPM) systems struggle to keep pace. These all-encompassing software suites, while seemingly comprehensive, often trap firms in a maze of complexity and inflexibility. They can be clunky to use, slow to update, and ill-equipped to handle the ever-evolving needs of a dynamic legal practice.

Here is where composable platforms can help. These cloud-based systems are built on the principle of modularity, offering a library of pre-built applications (microservices) that can be mixed and matched to create a customized solution. Imagine a legal tech toolbox filled with best-in-class tools, each addressing a specific need. This is the power of composability – the ability to tailor your technology stack to perfectly match your firm’s unique workflow and client demands.

Industry analysts like Gartner predict a surge in composable architecture adoption, with 60% of businesses expected to invest this year. Perhaps even more compelling is their estimation that companies embracing a composable approach will outperform a staggering 80% of their competitors1.

The evergreen and empower suite from exemplifies this composable approach. Here’s how it capacitates law firms to do more:
  • Greater innovation: Cloud-based solutions like the evergreen and empower suite, designed specifically for law firms, allow these businesses to adapt quickly to changing landscapes. New functionalities can be easily added or removed, fostering a culture of innovation and experimentation without a complete system overhaul. As Legal Practice Intelligence reported2, cloud adoption was hovering around 40% in 2022—compared to 3% in 2020 clearly showing that law firms are increasingly using cloud-based legal solutions, to their advantage.
  • Improved efficiency and productivity: The legal practice is often bogged down by repetitive tasks. The evergreen and empower suite integrates seamlessly with artificial intelligence (AI)-powered tools for document automation, contract review, and legal research, streamlining workflows and freeing up valuable lawyer time. A study by Gartner3 predicts that by 2026, 25% of first draft contracts and other written documents in corporate legal departments will be generated entirely by AI tools.
  • Greater security and scalability: Unlike monolithic applications with a large “attack surface” – a vulnerable area for attackers – composable architectures are built from smaller, independent components. This makes compromising a composable application like playing whack-a-mole for attackers. This, when coupled with a cloud platform such as Azure, allows firms to weave in Zero Trust security into the very fabric of composable architecture. The connected, composable platform thus allows you to add security even at the API level.
  • Enhanced agility: Composable platforms empower law firms with agility. New features can be easily added or removed, like building blocks. This lets firms adapt to changing client needs and market demands quickly, without a complete system overhaul. It’s like having a toolbox of best-in-class solutions, ready to be swapped in and out for optimal performance.

Just like a champion sports team meticulously assembles its players, a law firm built on a composable platform can assemble the perfect team of technology solutions. With the evergreen and empower suite, firms can choose best-in-class applications for case management, client communication, and more, ensuring a seamless and efficient operation.

The legal industry is on the cusp of a transformation. evergreen and empower, the composable suite from, offers law firms the agility, efficiency, and innovation they need to thrive in the digital age. By embracing this modular approach, firms can build a winning legal team, one that is custom-built for success and future-proofed for the ever-evolving legal landscape. Remember, in today’s dynamic legal environment, customization and adaptability are no longer luxuries – they are necessities for survival.
