Our LEDES billing codes further simplify the process by allowing you to generate LEDES invoices for all your cases and clients with just a click and then help you by seamlessly downloading all the generated files in a zip. Multiple LEDES files for the same client can be combined in one file so that there is only one file to upload to your client’s billing system.

For example, a client may specify certain activity codes that can or cannot be used with certain task codes. The invoice will be rejected by the client’s system if these validation rules are not followed. CaseFox can enforce proper validation of time entries according to the client’s requirements and also allows custom task/activity/expense codes.
