ASCENT is an enterprise legal management software that helps law firms manage processes for litigation, billing, document automation, and more. The cloud-hosted solution includes SmartView analytic dashboards, which attorneys can use to visualize and gain insight into activities across cases, in order to aid decision-making across the organization.

Key features of ASCENT include e-billing, matter management, collaboration, and analytics. Businesses can utilize ASCENT's e-discovery capabilities to search, discover, and analyze data elements including spend across cases in real-time. It offers a query builder, which lets paralegals use dynamic filters and user-defined attributes to locate custom results for complex queries. Using the report builder, firms can also automatically generate reports and export them to Excel format for distribution.

ASCENT facilitates integration with Microsoft Outlook through SmartLink, allowing businesses to manage daily tasks from within Outlook. Attorneys can utilize the platform to predict costs across cases and prepare strategies to optimize productivity and expenses.

Doe Ascent Flexibility

Reviewed on 2019/01/09

Doe is helping us build a library of matters we are working on.

Doe is helping us build a library of matters we are working on.


I like that we can keep all our legal matters in one place and that it is easier to keep track of our matters.


This software is not very user friendly in the sense that there is no flexibility to create reports on the fly and there are limits to the use outside litigation.

Response from doeLegal

ASCENT version 8.0 includes a completely redesigned user experience. ASCENT is continually upgraded to allow maximum flexibility in those areas. We encourage you to contact us and we'd be more than happy to show you the enhanced functionality, including the SmartView¿ graphical analytic dashboards and the SmartLink¿ Outlook integration.
