Store resolutions in Litify to capture information about verdicts, decisions, attorney fees, and other important information when resolving a legal matter. Within each resolution, gather information about the payor, resolution type, damage amounts, and all other required information. Resolutions ensure the case life cycle is managed entirely on Litify.
• Run reports on resolutions across all legal matters to gain insight into the way your firm resolves cases.
• Relate resolutions to specific roles within legal matters, such as insurance companies and payors, so you keep track of involved parties.
• Create as many resolution types as necessary to gather information about resolutions specific to your firm's practices.
