Los Altos, CA, October 19, 2023: MaxVal Group, Inc. (“MaxVal”), a leading provider of intellectual property management solutions, announced today the release of Symphony for Law Firms.
Developed in collaboration with leading law firms, Symphony is a modern IP management software solution that empowers law firms to streamline operations, enhance productivity, reduce risk, and increase visibility and control over their IP practice.

Key features of Symphony for Law Firms include:
Client Management: Feature-rich ‘Client’ module captures engagement models, special instructions, agent mapping, business information and supports approval workflows.
Time Recording: Fully-integrated time recording supports native time capture and stopwatch functionality. Time information is posted to matters, auto-validated and routed for review and approval to support efficient, accurate and timely billing.
Workflow Automation and Inbound Email Handling: Powerful workflow automation streamlines and automates inbound email processing. Configurable workflows for case handling and work assignment reduce errors, enhance productivity and promote on-time delivery.
Case Management: Centralized repository enables law firms to manage all aspects of IP including patent, trademark, and legal matters leveraging a structured approach that ensures easy access to case details, supports team collaboration, and boosts overall case management efficiency.
Docketing Management: Automated docketing and deadline management features enable law firms to stay on top of critical deadlines and maintain compliance with legal requirements. Automated reminders and notifications ensure timely actions and minimize the risk of missed deadlines or late filings.
Integration: Seamless integration with essential IP systems and third-party solutions enable law firms to eliminate manual data entry, improve data accuracy, and foster a more connected and efficient ecosystem.
Analytics and Reporting: Configurable dashboards, visualizations, and reports facilitate firm-wide transparency, data-driven decision-making and process optimization.
