What's in a name?

Cael, pronounced kale, is the Latin root for ‘sky’ – a good name, we think, for cloud software designed to help take our clients’ legal operations to a higher level.

Cael LPM™

Legal project management simplified

Our cloud-based app improves collaboration and communication between corporate legal departments and law firms. Cael Project (previously Cael LPM) streamlines legal project management for lawyers, with a practical approach and a user-friendly interface that works on desktops, laptops, and tablets – and now, iPhones. In addition to helping law firms to successfully manage projects against budget and schedule, the app has been extended for corporate legal departments, providing oversight of all projects across all outside counsel firms, without having to log into different law firm systems.
