What Happens if a Clio Account Owner Dies or is Incapacitated?


  • If I were to pass away and the Law Society would want access to my account, what would you require?
  • Account Owner Deceased
  • Account Owner is sick or incapacitated


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

Account owners have the option to use Clio Connect to share active matters if downtime is anticipated. A "locum" can also be added as an additional user if you are worried about access post mortem. 


In the event of a deceased, incapacitated, or ill Account Owner, we would require a notarized Affidavit to authorize access. If someone else on the account still has access to the account they can request a transfer of ownership.

We would require proof of valid access from the Estate of the Attorney or the proper Granting Authority to move the administration under another individual's name.
