Law firms save hundreds of hours with new automated LEDESConvert application

CHICAGO:  Effortless Legal LLC, a Chicago-based tech company bringing advanced automation and machine-learning products to the legal space, announced today the launch of LEDESConvert, a cloud-based product designed to solve the challenges law firms face when converting invoices between various LEDES formats.

LEDES standards are used globally for legal invoices. There are several different LEDES formats, and not all billing systems allow users to generate invoices in all standards. Because different clients often require invoices to be prepared in specific formats, converting invoices manually can take hours and cost firms significant time and money.

LEDESConvert simplifies and automates that process.

"The LEDESConvert tool has been a true lifesaver for our new, boutique defense firm,” said a partner from one of EffortlessLegal’s test law firms. “With a major client that unexpectedly could only accept bills in the LEDES 2000 format, LEDESConvert’s ability to easily, effortlessly, and accurately convert LEDES 1998B invoices to LEDES 2000 format has saved hundreds of hours of manual conversion time.”

The LEDESConvert process is simple – just upload an invoice, fill out the additional fields required for the new format, and then the computer automatically completes the conversion.

EffortlessLegal’s LEDESConvert product currently converts the LEDES 1998B format to the LEDES 2000 format. Additional format conversion options will be available in the next release.

“We are proud to announce the launch of LEDESConvert, and to be on the leading edge of AI and automation in the legal industry,” said Holly Urban, the CEO and co-founder of EffortlessLegal. “LEDESConvert joins EffortlessLegal’s growing catalog of applications designed to automate the tedious parts of being a lawyer.”  

EffortlessLegal has been testing its various offerings through live law firm usage for many months to sometimes over a year.

Firms interested in learning more can also receive a free trial before making a purchase decision.
