Adoption of electronic payment acceptance by large law firms has been gaining momentum and 2020 saw an accelerated double digit growth rate among enterprise firm adoption, due to client demand for contactless payments and the acceleration of CIO/CFO workflow efficiency initiatives. Unlike basic consumer online transactions, large firms have specific payment needs that require solutions purpose-built by industry that integrate securely with their current practice management and accounting software and provide for the processing of large transactions with personalized customer support.

This acquisition strengthens AffiniPay’s commitment to serving all professional services firms with solutions customized to serve their needs, spanning from the solo practitioner to the largest legal and professional services organizations. ClientPay will also add key large firm practice management technology partnerships to the AffiniPay and LawPay portfolio, adding to its ecosystem of more than 70 integrated technology partners. This allows all professional services firms to securely integrate electronic payment capabilities into their existing technology platforms.
