Privacy and Security

You are our customer, not our data.

LawPracticeZA is a 100% self-financed, family-owned business based here in South Africa. LawPracticeZA makes extensive use of open-source technology for security and quality reasons. Our suppliers do not have access to the data you entrust us with and it is deployed on infrastructure that is under only our control. This means that your data is not shared with other companies or services, other than the third-party integrations, like Google or Office 365 Calendar, which you may choose to enable, explicitly. Even with these integrations enabled, the minimum data is shared in order for the integration to function. For example, with calendar integrations, only the information necessary for syncing of diary entries is shared.

We do not sell your data to anyone, ever, and we do not share summary information or other types of aggregated or analytical reductions of your data with anyone, aside from broad, anonymised measurements we use for marketing purposes which you may see on this website (such as number of firms using LawPracticeZA, approximate geographical distribution, etc). Our staff are able to access data on a need-to-know basis only in order to provide you with service and support, for the purposes of using our product safely and effectively. We are committed to the highest levels of privacy and security for you, our LawPracticeZA user.

E4 integrates with LawPracticeZA

Good News for Conveyancers

LawPracticeZA is integrated with e4 Transfers and e4 Bonds. This integration eliminates duplicate financial capturing between conveyancing and account management systems and dramatically increases the efficiency and accuracy of client and matter accounts.

The integration requires a special e4 user to be added to your LawPracticeZA instance at no additional cost. Contact us if you need assistance setting up the integration.

Recent Updates from the Developers Continuous Improvement


LawPracticeZA has been built with an API-first approach. All business logic operations and data IO can be performed securely over our secure RESTful JSON API mounted at /api. This means that developers are free to integrate LawPracticeZA with other systems such as document generation, business management, customer relationship management, etc. See the API guide in our manual for further reading.
