ArkCase solution for Legal community

Hi @oneitonitram

With the “Leads” and “Opportunities” in the menu, it looks like part of a CRM - which it probably is…

My 2 cents

Now that you mention it, there’s likely a lot in common between “CRM” and “Legal case management”–which made me wonder if Odoo might also play in this field. And lo and behold:

Doesn’t look like it’s very up-to-date, though.


It’s also true, especially for Enterprise sized clients, plenty of software which can cover almost all aspects of business… ERP like SAP or Oracle’s product…

CRM itself is a part of ERP.

Chemists never liked the classification:

All chemistry is just atomic physics / interactions on the outer electron of said molecule (or atom).

They take it as belittling, however, it’s not untrue. Then again, the field of chemistry is so large itself, that biology is separated ( → organic chemistry is the simpler part).

There’s a good reason certain law practices are known as top lawyers say in finance, marriage/divorce, coporate mergers, international law - you name it! But usually only in one or two fields…

Each field - even as a lawyer - you can’t possibly cover everything, it’s just too vast, even just in one country / nation.

My 2 cents

PS: No belittling of chemists, biologists or lawyers intended, just acknowledging the vastness of some subfields… :slight_smile:

@Andy_Wismer it actually is.

we actually did some not major improvements to our crm solution, and it actually turned out so well, its one of the clients who pointed it out, so when we built functions that worked for their law firm, we noticed it can actually work so well for others, did not see the need to remove opportunities and leads, though everything not needed can be removed from the settings, and since the software is modular we can also add new functionalities, its built on php.

Yes, there is actually alot of commonality between the two systems and fields.

Generally, we modified an existing CRM system which we built internally, and with those modifications it actually works so well for law firms, and they have sent us many recommendations,

adding nextcloud into the mix, with the Not-CRM for practise management, it works great


Hello all:

I stumbled across this thread and am quite interested.

My law firm is running on NS7 at the moment. I have an NS8 instance running to test NS8 and for another business that is law-adjacent.

ArkCase would be a great application for my firm and for firms in my region. NS8, I think, presents a far more interesting environment in which ArkCase could be deployed as a container, which would greatly accelerate deployment.

While ArkCase is primarily marketed toward lawyers, it can be used in other businesses. Governments use ArkCase to manage access to information / disclosure requests. ArkCase can also be used for in-house legal teams, who need to assist with or manage litigation and other kinds of files. I can also see ArkCase being useful in high-volume transaction environments (like real estate or aircraft purchase and sale, to name some specific examples).

All this to say: I would be interested in promoting development of ArkCase as an NS8 application. My technical skill is somewhat lacking; I am, at best, an enthusiastic user. I could, however, fund or partially fund the development of a containerized installation for ArkCase on NS8 (and more besides, if people want an easier way to set up the application in, for example, Docker).

@Adam_P_Strombergsson welcome back to the community, id’ be happy to take a look into arkcase implementation for NS8.

Let. Me. Scope on it and advice.


hello @Adam_P_Strombergsson its possible for us to implement a Ns8 App for arkcase, though i must admits its going to be a complex build, with so many moving parts…

@Adam_P_Strombergsson do you still have interest in this?
