CaseFox supports various electronic billing formats such as LEDES 1998B, Chubbs, Litigation Advisor.
A LEDES format invoice is automatically generated when you create an invoice. See "Getting Started" for instructions for generating invoices.
There are three required numbers for setting up a client/case for LEDES invoicing.
1. Law Firm ID - This is the identification of your firm in the billing system (e.g., Serengeti, TyMetrix, etc.) . This ID will be the same for each client. Typically this is your firm's tax ID. But please check with the billing system to confirm.
2. Client ID - CaseFox autogenerates this (which is what LEDES standards require). However, if the billing system provides a different Client ID, please replace (in Client Details/Edit tab) the auto-generated Client ID with the client id provided by the billing system.
3. Client Matter ID - Tthis is generated by the billing system and entered in Edit Case tab of each case.
4. Docket number (in Edit Case tab) - CaseFox autogenerates this reference number and this is not important for LEDES invoices. You may replace it by your own docket number if so desired.
Please see How To Create LEDES Invoices for more details.
