This article is for vendors and law firms.
This article is for vendor users who can create matters. If you are required to request matters for client approval, click here. The ability to create or request matters is managed in your client's settings. If you don't have the option of creating or requesting, reach out to your client to ask them to open a matter and share it with you or your firm office.
Before creating, it's important to ensure that the matter doesn't already exist. You can search for the matter to check that it hasn't already been created.
