Platform Allows Tracking and Management of Cases in Multiple Courts from Clio


Washington, DC – (October 18, 2019) Docket Alarm by Fastcase, the leader in customizable litigation analytics and docket research has teamed up with Clio’s practice management software to create a seamless process for attorneys to track and manage their cases. 


The timing couldn’t be better: With the Clio Cloud Conference 2019 on legal technology coming to San Diego on October 21 and 22, the Docket Alarm integration showcases Clio’s app marketplace, enabled by a robust API integration with services such as Fastcase legal research and Docket Alarm docket tracking and research tools.


Docket Alarm enables lawyers to find court cases, and provides alerts and immediate document access, as well as providing case outcome analytics. Docket Alarm links into many U.S. court systems, including federal district, circuit and bankruptcy courts; the Supreme Court; agency courts; and many state courts, providing access to documents the moment they’re filed.


“We acquire hundreds of thousands of federal district and state court decisions per year, about five times as many as Google Scholar,” says Docket Alarm Founder and Managing Director Michael Sander, “and because of our tight court integration, it’s always up to date.” 


The new integration allows Clio users to synchronize their document library with the court, via Docket Alarm’s direct court connection. Underlying filings as well as the docket sheet itself are automatically uploaded with metadata to the Clio user’s case folder. The filings are named in a user-friendly way and tagged with the associated matter, making them easy to find within Clio. The integration will save countless hours for attorneys and paralegals downloading court filings from a court website and uploading them to Clio.


“Clio has been partnering with Fastcase and Docket Alarm for years, and we have always been impressed by the value they have added for Clio customers. Integrations like Docket Alarm’s will give firms using these services together an advantage in speed and knowledge management that lawyers have never possessed before,” said Jack Newton, co-founder and CEO of Clio. “We’re thrilled to offer this integration to our customers.”


“Clio is the operating system for modern law firms,” said Fastcase CEO Ed Walters. “With Fastcase legal research, Docket Alarm’s docket tracking and analytics, and now NextChapter’s bankruptcy form and workflow business, Fastcase is becoming the productivity suite for Clio-powered law firms.”


Docket Alarm customers rank among the largest law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and market research and consulting firms. For some, it’s the Docket Alarm analytics that deliver the most value. Docket Alarm analyzes cases, building high-level reports on judges, parties, law firms, or on how certain factors affect a case, reporting the likelihood of success of a particular action.


NextChapter by Fastcase, a bankruptcy solution and the newest member of the Fastcase family, will also be introducing Clio integration within their platform at the conference.


Docket Alarm and NextChapter will showcase these innovations Oct. 21-22 at the Clio Cloud Conference 2019 in San Diego. To sign up for access to Docket Alarm’s legal research platform, Clio users can visit
