Legal Serve is an Electronic Court Filing (ECF) service, that is the automated transmission of legal documents from a legal practitioner, party or self-represented litigant to a court, and from a court back to the party, and from the legal practitioner or an other user to another legal practitioner or other user of a legal document.
It is a proprietary developed platform, 100% South African, that has been specifically developed to address specific challenges facing the modern legal professional in South Africa and Africa.
Operating within the legal boundaries, we have found smart legal ways to simplify the way you a legal practitioner disseminates legal document(s), fulfill court processes, and consume postal services.
At the same time we also modernize your current case file document management and legal document retention strategies within your firm.
To highlight a few of the specific challenges we have targeted.
1. The eradication of the subsidization of your disbursements by means of your professional fees.
2. The processing of registered mail, normal mail (snail mail), or the delivery of any legal document.
3. The automated creation of a proof of service or a track and trace report, these are only a few examples of how we are helping legal practitioners.
We provide services to the following vertical legal sectors; municipalities (government), banking, insurance, advocates, legal practitioners, property management, insolvency, business rescue and debt review and debt collection firms.
