Additional Information:

Please note that success of any data migration depends primarily on the quality of the data set provided to us. Before attempting to migrate your information into Clio, you should ensure that your data is consistently formatted, well organized, sufficiently backed up, and stored securely. If you are not certain, it is recommended that you consult with your Clio representative before proceeding.

  • We have limited resources to export matters, calendars, tasks, notes, and time entries
  • Matters are exported with only a first name for the primary contact and cannot be linked to the correct contact unless there is another unique linking element provided
  • Exports should be reviewed first before the migration process to ensure that the appropriate data can be used
