1. Request a Legl Account
To request a Legl account, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org (from your firm email address) with “Create Legl Account” in the title and we’ll send you over a secure invitation right away.
Once you've created an account, you'll always be able to log in here. We recommend to keep the link bookmarked for easy access.
2. Your Legl Account Dashboard
After logging in, you'll land on your Dashboard. This page gives you an overview of the tools that Legl offers. You're currently using CrowdJustice and Convert (which we'll explore in a moment) but we're very happy to talk to you about our Payments and Group Claims tools. Simply click "Learn More" to get in touch with our team.
In the CrowdJustice section of your Dashboard (as seen above), you'll find the number of matters that your firm has funded through CrowdJustice as well as the total funds raised to date.
You also have quick access to your client list and the "Invite A Client" function.
