EffortlessLegal’s LEDESConvert easily and securely converts invoices between different LEDES formats.

Different clients often require invoices to be prepared in specific LEDES formats.  Converting invoices manually can take hours, costing law firms significant time and money.

The estimated cost of manually converting 10 invoices a month is $810. This assumes a highly-trained billing assistant at total hourly cost of $27 /hr spending at least 3 hours per LEDES format invoice conversion.  The law firm’s actual cost could be much higher.

LEDESConvert automates the process! Using LEDESConvert process is simple – just upload an invoice, fill out the additional fields required for the new format, and then the application automatically completes the conversion.
