AUSTIN, Texas (March 9, 2022) — LawPay, the leading online payment solution for legal professionals, has announced its partnership with Nota by M&T Bank which will streamline operations for legal professionals at solo and small law firms. Small firms and solo attorneys make up the majority of the legal profession, according to the American Bar Association’s 2019 Legal Technology Survey Report. This new partnership will be available to Nota’s entire network of professionals.

Designed with attorney insights in mind, the LawPay and Nota integration will provide business banking solutions and secure online payments to solo and small law firms. LawPay’s innovative online payment solution helps professionals get paid 39% faster, and Nota splits and tracks credit card transactions directly into bank accounts. Payments can now be reconciled from a single operating system with the LawPay and Nota integration.

“We are excited about the integration between Nota and LawPay and how it offers a platform empowering legal professionals to maximize financial management efficiencies with their clients,” said Dru Armstrong, CEO of LawPay. “Our goal is to continually innovate our technology platform by diversifying payment options for our customers that increase their business. We understand that our payments need to be made simpler, and that’s why we are excited to bring this integration with Nota to our customers and to our customers’ clients.”
