Watch a quick overview.

Can I access Clio Connect on a mobile device?

How do I access Clio Connect?

As a legal client:

To access Clio Connect, your lawyer must share an initial resource with you, via email, inviting you to access a resource in Clio Connect. You must then set up your account.

  • Find the invitation email from your lawyer in your email inbox. The subject line should reference your law firm’s name and the item being shared. (Note: Please check your junk folders.)
  • Click on the link in the email. If this is your first time using Clio Connect, you will need to set up an account.
  • To get set up with Clio Connect, complete a form with your name, email, and a secure password. Your password will be used for all future logins.

As a lawyer or legal professional:

Clio Connect is available to lawyers and legal professionals who have a Clio subscription.

  • Law firms do not need to set up a Clio Connect account—unless using it to collaborate with other firms as co-counsel.

As a client, how do I access a file my lawyer has shared with me?

Once you've been invited to use Clio Connect by your lawyer and have set up your Clio account, you can access files in two ways:

  1. By clicking on the “View [Item Name]” link in the email from your lawyer.
  2. By signing into Clio Connect directly and accessing files in the web portal.

I’m not sure if my lawyer is using Clio Connect or another tool.

Please reach out to your lawyer so they can confirm with you.
