Do Law Firms Need Email Disclosures?

Everyone has seen them, and maybe your law firm uses them (or even overuses them): Disclaimers tacked on to the end of emails that are intended manage risk. This extra text might confirm that the information within the email is privileged or confidential, or reject liability for any potentially negligent advice offered in the email.

Email disclaimers can and have been used for a variety of purposes, but, how effective are these disclaimers? Are they even necessary?

Some experts say that the use of email disclaimers should be weighed on a case-by-case basis. Others say that email disclaimers really don’t do anything at all. Still, others say that they’re important to use regularly in order to protect law firms from suits.

Blanket disclaimers

If your firm appends a disclaimer to every message that comes from every person in its offices, the disclaimer’s message can be diluted, according to this piece by Brett Cenkus. People grow accustomed to seeing the message and either don’t read it or don’t take it seriously. The disclaimer effectively becomes invisible.

And, according to Cenkus, those kinds of disclaimers may not necessarily even be helpful in court if your law firm has been found to have broken confidentiality or privilege, citing cases in some jurisdictions where the disclaimer made no difference. He believes it’s a good idea to use disclaimers asserting privilege or confidentiality only in emails that truly require the disclaimer. That puts the responsibility in the hands of the email sender instead of the person responsible for IT, which may make more sense.

Cenkus also discusses the rationale behind not using disclaimers protecting against “negligent misstatement[s],” writing that the email sender is responsible for the advice sent in an email and that an “…email disclaimer will not reduce a professional duty of care. It’s also unlikely to successfully defend against a claim of negligent misstatement if the disclaimer is a standard one tacked on to every single email.”

Think before you disclaim

Ultimately, it’s up to each individual firm to determine whether disclaimers actually manage risk or just give the appearance of managing risk. Firm leaders and management should discuss and decide which, if any, situations are appropriate for an email disclaimer to be included.

Cenkus also makes the suggestion of putting the disclaimer first in the message instead of popping it on to the end of the message; even if your firm selectively uses disclaimers, recipients have become desensitized to them, in general, from having received them from so many others. So, a disclaimer at the end of the message may still be disregarded.

Lots of issues can be resolved with technology; unfortunately, the choice to use or not use email disclaimers may not fall into that category. It takes thought each time a lawyer sends an email.

If you’re looking for solutions to other risk management issues, such as automatic and redundant back-ups, updates, and security, that’s where technology – and Legal Workspace – can help.

Everything You Need to Know About Virtual Law Platforms

A virtual law platform – or a law firm in the cloud – can change the way that firms go about providing excellent service to clients and keeping costs down internally. Here are the answers to some typical questions law firms have before making the change.

Migration time and effort: Not an issue

Ordinarily, migrating data from one technology to another takes a lot of time and energy. But, you don’t have to worry when it comes to moving data to the cloud.

Of course, the timeline depends on your data volume, but the process itself is usually a quick one – and it doesn’t require constant input and adjustment on your end.

Security: Data is locked up

Unless you work in a Fortune 100 law firm, it is unlikely your data security is flawless. And even if you have managed to achieve a secure environment, it probably takes a herculean effort with multiple IT consultants and/or firms working constantly to make sure nothing and no one breach your defenses. In other words, it’s a lot of work, and it costs a lot of money.

When you select a virtual law platform, such as Legal Workspace, you benefit from the kind of security those elite law firms offer, all at a fraction of the cost. Legal Workspace can offer high-level security at a reduced cost because of the scalability of its security systems.

Need to be HIPAA-compliant? That would be a major headache if you tried to do it yourself, but when you work with a company like Legal Workspace, you only need to request that security feature.

IT costs: Reduced

You may be patching up an old server, trying to put off the giant expense of a new one. Maybe you have a Microsoft Exchange 2010 server that’s coming to the end of its support lifetime – and you know you need to either invest in a new one or make a different choice.

Whatever your IT situation, your management team is likely a little bit annoyed by the way that IT spending can conflict with – and usually exceed – what’s in the budget. When you move your law firm to the cloud, suddenly IT costs become a lot more predictable and a lot less expensive.

Instead of shelling out upwards of $15,000 for a new server (and all of the additional costs that accompany such a complex project), maybe it’s time to consider using a virtual law platform with stable monthly fees as IT costs.

Workflows: Optimized

Let’s say you have everything figured out already when it comes to workflows, applications, and software you use to keep your law firm humming at peak efficiency. If you do, that’s great: Legal Workspace, or the virtual law platform of your choosing, can usually lift those working parts into the cloud. What worked before, works after.

But, if you could use a hand with improving workflows and need help finding solutions that work better, Legal Workspace’s team of experts can listen, advise, and tailor an environment that makes your law firm click. What didn’t work before, works after.

And that’s not all!

Basically everything stays the same or works better in the cloud. Convert that server closet or room into something more useful and relax. Many of the worries you experienced with on-site servers will no longer be an issue.

Migration? Not a huge time commitment. Security? Better than ever. IT costs? Stabilized and reduced. Workflows? Improved. A virtual law platform can make things easier, safer, and more efficient. Reach out today to learn more.

Multiple Locations, No Headaches: Law Firm Cloud Advantages

Whether you’ve just added a second law firm location or have been juggling the management of multiple locations for longer than you can remember, one thing is true: It can be a headache.

There’s a lot to consider even before you come to IT issues – and IT issues can be the snarliest challenges you’ll face. How do you manage multiple firewalls and phone systems? How do you provide access to shared programs and files? How do you share files securely? How do you make sure that security is consistent and top-of-the-line in each location? How do you check that back-ups are being regularly performed?

A million systems or one simple solution?

You can hire the best people. You can set up systems upon systems that streamline management. You can enact checks and balances that ensure you catch everything that might fall through the cracks. You can assess and reassess. You can think about these issues day and night.

And, still, something might happen that no one foresaw. Still, a server might crash that brings down a location for several hours. Still, a natural disaster could take out an entire region, resulting in data loss. Still, a hacker could target one of your law firms, breach a firewall, and gain access to privileged information.

One simple solution could alleviate all of those headaches and make life a lot simpler for those who manage multiple law firm locations – and for those who work at them. The cloud can simplify IT for law firms with multiple locations, and it can make your technology more reliable, more secure, and easier to access, too.

What the cloud can do

You can stop worrying about multiple firewalls and their vulnerabilities when you use the cloud. Cloud security operates on a different plane. And, Legal Workspace’s cloud security is a cut above the rest because it was designed specifically for law firms, with redundant enterprise-grade firewalls and an intrusion detection/prevention system that can do dual-factor authentication.

What does all that mean, and why is it important? You can take Legal Workspace’s cybersecurity quiz to find out where your IT security currently stands, and how using a cloud environment, like Legal Workspace, can eliminate the headaches that come from managing multiple firewalls, for example.

Networked phone systems can be a pain. When you use a cloud phone system, you connect to a bevy of new and exciting technologies, which can allow for easier collaboration, flexibility, and access. The cloud also simplifies the process of allowing access to shared programs and sharing files securely.

Using the cloud also does something important that many companies – even law firms that are well aware of the risks – avoid. It creates a simple and automatic disaster recovery plan for your multiple firm locations. Because Legal Workspace houses its clients’ data in multiple server centers in diverse geographical locations, you’re covered in case of catastrophe. Beyond that, back-ups are automatically performed, and updates are automatically applied so you know you’re always using the newest and best versions of your legal software.

Managing multiple locations is especially difficult for law firms because the very nature of the business requires top-notch security and collaboration. When you have multiple locations, there are more chances for slip-ups, inconsistencies, and complications. A cloud environment can simplify the way your attorneys work – and keep their work secure.

Migrate Legal Software to the Cloud in 6 Steps

In today’s world, technology is literally at our fingertips and has become the backbone of all business process and functionality.  Long past are the days where a firm could run with a typewriter, some file cabinets, a copy machine, and maybe even a shared printer.  Technology truly has transformed the landscape of business productivity and turned it into a virtually well-oiled machine, accessible 24/7/365, and constantly processing the business functions. Most of this is achieved by abandoning the old local technology and moving your data to the cloud.  Making a plan to move to the cloud can be a nebulous thought, as there are so many technologies that can be utilized, and the market is becoming saturated with “cloud” providers.  Naturally, some providers are more robust than others, and it can be overwhelming for the aspiring firm to make technology decisions like this with little intellectual knowledge of what would work best for their firm.  With this in mind, here are some good pointers as to how to make a responsible and educated decision on moving your firm’s technology to cloud services:

How does your firm operate?

Many firms are migrating their software to the cloud for a number of reasons. Some firms want to eliminate purchasing expensive hardware servers and the maintenance that comes with the new hardware. Some firms, such as Personal Injury firms, need to be HIPAA compliant and find it’s less expensive and less of a headache to move to the cloud. Some firms migrate to the cloud to experience greater accessibility and collaboration between multiple office, home office, and courtrooms. The cloud allows safe access to data, files, and software from anywhere.

Fully vet and evaluate a cloud provider

You will absolutely get what you pay for. Get a few different quotes and evaluate them thoroughly. Most of our clients have used other cloud providers and eventually came to Legal Workspace when their needs were not being met by other providers. Based on our clients’ feedback, we’ve compiled an article on vetting cloud providers here. Long story short, Law firms need top-notch support, state-of-the-art security, and ABA compliant cloud vendors.

Evaluate users and permissions, does everyone really need access to your General Partnership Documents?

Not everyone at your firms needs access to all data. Does your paralegal need access to practice management software? In the cloud, you can custom tailor your solution to grant access to what each employee needs access to, giving all the benefits of a cloud-based system, with the level of security of an enterprise organization.  It takes the guesswork out of who can access your confidential data, and allows you to quickly grant and deny access to your team members. 

Reconcile Data – Time to check in on compliance and housekeeping.

Once you’ve decided on a cloud provider, it’s time to Marie Kondo your data. Most state bars require law firms to keep data for a certain number of years but there could be data lurking that can be safely deleted. We see a lot of duplicate files and moving to the cloud is a great opportunity to consolidate and clean up data.

Sending Data to the Cloud Provider- Make sure this is encrypted.

There are a few different ways to send your law firms’ data to your cloud provider. Your cloud provider may remote into your network and export data directly to the cloud. Your cloud provider may use a physical hard drive to transfer data from your firm to their cloud.

Run Parallel Systems (and test the concept)

Once your legal cloud provider has your law firm’s data, they will run two networks simultaneously – your old network and your new cloud. As you’re working, the cloud vendor will see if any data was added to your old network after the transfer and ensure all of your connections are working properly. Most modern-day legal software programs sync well with each other and the connections you had previously, say from Worldox to TimeMatters(pls change if this is wrong, looking for well-known apps that sync), will transfer to the cloud.

4 Reasons Why Cloud Services and Law Firms Belong Together

Cloud environments provide a lot of advantages no matter what industry is served. But, law firms especially benefit from specific features and services that cloud hosting can supply. These four big reasons make it clear that law firms and cloud services belong together:

1)      Email hosting

What would happen if your email host experienced an outage? How much would that affect your ability to work with clients? Beyond that, do you know for sure that your email encryption is strong enough?

The cloud eliminates both of those worries in one fell swoop: It makes email hosting reliable and secure. Attorneys and other employees will be able to access email anytime away from the office, and it is as safe and as dependable as it would be if they were sitting at their desks in the middle of the business day.

Cloud hosting also means that your firm is not storing files on any device, which is a key provision to the Health Care Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). In fact, if your law firm services clients that need HIPAA compliance, a cloud environment like Legal Workspace can make that ordinarily cumbersome process easy.

Finally, you have no need to worry about losing email data. Even if a natural disaster or a theft occurs at your law firm’s physical space, your information is safe.

2)      File storage and virtual servers

All of the advantages of email hosting in the cloud apply to file storage in the cloud. Nothing is hosted on your law firm’s devices, so compliance with regulatory oversight is a snap. The storage is reliable and secure.

Cloud providers use virtual servers. That means law firm management can stop thinking about server maintenance, worrying about technology upgrades, and stressing over potential down time. When you take advantage of cloud services, you will always be using the latest and greatest technology.

It also means attorneys and employees have access to the same files, software, and other data any time and anywhere. They may be in court or mediation. They may be traveling or working odd hours. With a cloud environment like Legal Workspace, attorneys can have the exact same work experience in court that they would in their own offices, for example. It saves time, increases productivity, and makes work more convenient.

3)      Back-ups

You can’t predict the future. And, no matter how well you prepare or work to mitigate risk, it is still possible that your workspace will be struck by natural disaster or burglary. Maybe you’ve thought of that and are already doing regular data back-ups…or maybe you’ve let that fall by the wayside.

When you use a cloud environment, back-ups happen automatically. Instead of natural disaster or theft causing business interruption, you have zero downtime. Legal Workspace keeps two weeks’ worth of back-ups, and they store data in two geographically diverse locations – so even if something happens that affects one of those facilities, the other has you covered.

4)      Simplified routine office tasks

You can think of the cloud as your all-around IT solution because most cloud services ensure that your office technology is working, too. That means phones, networks, printers, and scanners stay up and running, and if something goes south, you know who to call.

Law firms that use a cloud environment can concentrate on what they do best: practicing law. When you make the decision to go with the cloud, email services, file storage, security, reliable back-ups, and a simplified office routine are all yours.

Picking the Best Cloud Package for Your Law Firm

You already know the benefits of using a cloud-based work environment for your law firm. Increased flexibility, security, and functionality: All of that can be accomplished by switching to the cloud.

Legal Workspace, which supplies cloud-based work environments specifically for law firms, now provides two pricing packages to better serve clients’ needs. How do you know which one is right for you, in order to create your ideal law firm in the cloud?

Both packages provide the great hosting, service, and security you’ve come to expect from Legal Workspace. In both the Gold Package and the Platinum Package, you will get:

Legal Software Hosting

This includes virtual law firm cloud servers dedicated to your firm, along with the virtual workspace that allows attorneys and staff to access their desktops anytime, anywhere, with any device. Microsoft Office and Exchange email are included, as well as storage for your legal applications and software, files, and data.

Professional Onboarding

If you’re not already working with Legal Workspace, you’ll get a custom cloud environment specifically tailored to your firm. Before it launches, Legal Workspace performs parallel testing to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. The whole transition can be a hands-off experience for you.

Dedicated Expert Support

If you’re worried about running into snags, you can let that go. Legal Workspace provides unlimited environment support including updates and maintenance. It guarantees 99.99% uptime.

Security and Compliance

Do you have a client with specific security needs, such as HIPAA? Legal Workspace is the leading cloud provider for security-focused law firms and its law firm cloud storage is unparalleled. With AmLaw 100 grade security, customizable data encryption options, two-factor authentication, state-of-the-art antispam and antivirus, and more, a law firm in the cloud can mean more security than your firm would ever have been able to cobble together onsite and on its own.

The additional benefit of the Platinum Package

The Platinum Package gives law firms added peace of mind in the form of additional dedicated expert support. Beyond the environment support, those law firms that opt for the Platinum Package also receive:

• local computer support
• software and application support
• local network equipment and internet support
• support for printers and scanners

If you have an onsite IT person or already work with an IT provider that can take care of those issues for you as they come up, you can simply select the Gold Package. Legal Workspace will take care of your law firm’s cloud support, and your IT person can take care of the rest.

But, if you’re looking to make a change or you need that extra focused attention, Legal Workspace can provide it to you with the Platinum Package, which supplies unlimited cloud support as well as support for your local work stations.

A law firm in the cloud increases productivity, flexibility, and security, all while reducing costs. The choice is yours: Select the Gold or the Platinum Package to benefit from the services your law firm needs.

3 Resolutions All Law Firms Should Make in 2019

Another New Year is upon us! ‘Tis the season for law firms to take stock of the past year’s successes and shortcomings and make goals for the upcoming year.

It used to be that preparing a law firm for a new year mainly meant staying the course and constructing growth goals. While growth is something that most law firms want to happen in 2019, there’s now more that goes into making a robust and agile law firm.

Get up-to-date on technology

If your law firm is still going about the business of law the old-fashioned way, it is going to be left behind. Technology has helped to even the playing field for law firms. Now, with technology’s help, smaller firms can take on more complex clients. And, larger firms can provide more efficient, more accurate service.

Automation and management

With a wide array of legal applications, law firms can streamline management and administration. For example, practice management software, such as Amicus Attorney® or Time Matters®, allows administrators to track and manage schedules and records. Document management software, such as Worldox®, takes organization and productivity a step further.

Time and billing software simplifies the invoicing process, increases accuracy, and frees up valuable attorney time. And, legal document generation automation software, such as Hot Docs® and ProDoc®, prevents attorneys from re-inventing the wheel every time they create a transactional document.

Using this kind of technology releases legal minds from the tyranny of busy work. It also allows management to manage instead of worrying about the little things.

Flexibility and reliability

By now, most law firm management has heard about using the advantages of using a cloud environment. One benefit is that attorneys and employees can access their workspaces from their Smartphones, tablets, laptops – practically any device that can connect to the internet. And, downtime is a thing of the past: Cloud environments like Legal Workspace use top notch technology and talent to provide clients with reliable, seamless service.

And, all of the above mentioned legal applications are compatible with Legal Workspace – which means that you can either do a complete technological overhaul when you make the switch to the cloud, or, you can work with Legal Workspace to integrate your current software with its environment.

Secure your data

Hackers have New Year’s resolutions, too: to work continuously and find new ways to penetrate defenses and steal data. Clients are becoming increasingly aware of the dangers and have higher expectations for data protection. And, of course, large clients and clients in certain industries (such as those associated with medical records) have high security standards (such as HIPAA) that need to be met.

Legal Workspace was created solely for law firms, so security is paramount. The Legal Workspace cloud environment utilizes military-grade security, which means that your clients’ data is much safer than it would be if you were to attempt to build your own secure environment. Not only that, but if a client does have a particular security request, Legal Workspace can adapt its environment to meet its needs.

Prep for disaster

No one likes to think that a natural disaster might occur that could wipe out their law firm’s records. Fire, flood, and tornadoes are just a few examples of challenges that could interrupt business and cause irreparable damage to a law firm.

When you have your data and workspace housed in a cloud environment (and that data is stored redundantly in multiple geographic locations and regularly backed up), that’s it: You’re prepared for disaster. Your data will still be accessible in the cloud no matter what might happen on the ground.

These three ways to prepare your law firm for 2019 can be accomplished easily by making one decision: to move to a cloud environment. Make this year the year that technology and data stop causing challenges in your law firm.

Future-Proof Your Law Firm

Use the Cloud to Keep Up with the Pace of Technology

It’s no secret; technology has accelerated the pace of change – in work and in life. There are a few ways that your law firm can go about adapting to these changes.

You could:

1. Bury your head in the sand and insist on the traditional ways of doing things.

2. Throw money at the problem, amassing all the new software and gadgets available and hiring experts to teach you how to use everything.

3. Make a simple change to the way you do work and handle your data.

Of course, the third option is making the change over to using a cloud environment, such as Legal Workspace. Using the cloud is an easy way to set up your firm for any future tech innovations, in addition to the other advantages it promises, like security and flexibility.

Why the cloud allows for rapid change

When a law firm operates from on-site servers, it lacks the kind of agility that using a cloud environment can provide. For example, what would happen if your biggest client suddenly placed regulations on your firm? How would you go about making sure you could meet those requirements? How much time, effort, and money would it take to give them what they wanted?

And if you were able to pull it off, would the client still be there, waiting for you to bring your security to their level?

Taking advantage of law firm cloud services removes that worry. Legal Workspace, because it was created specifically for law firms, utilizes military-grade security for all of its clients and can accommodate special requests from firms who use its services. HIPAA compliance obligations and any other high-level security requirements can be quickly applied to ensure that your clients’ data is protected.

That kind of behind-the-scenes agility is important because it also allows you to make changes to the way you do business. For example, if you’re not already taking advantage of legal document generation automation to streamline your attorneys’ workloads, you can select one of the applications that is compatible with Legal Workspace, work with its team of experts to customize the program to your preferences, and increase your efficiency.

Beyond that, the simple fact is that workplace culture is changing. Many attorneys are putting in the same number – or even more – hours than they ever did before, but they’re not necessarily doing it from the office. A cloud work environment, like Legal Workspace, allows attorneys to access their workspace from anywhere, on any device, at any time. If an attorney has a big realization while watching their kid’s soccer game, they can grab their smartphone and get moving.

The future is in the cloud

When you migrate to the cloud, a big chunk of worry falls away. No fretting about your data security’s adequacy. No concern about making the right software and application choices. No restrictions for your attorneys with regard to when and where they choose to work.

Now, which of these three options sounds like the best strategy:

1. Stick to tradition and hope your firm remains viable?

2. Throw money at the problem and try to do it yourself?

3. Or, lean on experts to take care of your technology issues by using a cloud environment?

Security With Zero Effort

Security With Zero Effort

Do you know that October is cybersecurity awareness month? More importantly, do you know what you need to do in order to keep your data secure? Or, are you aware of what you need to do…except sometimes tasks (like regular back-ups) fall through the cracks?

Maybe your IT person or department is responsible for security, but you’re not really sure what that entails – which could mean that you’re not really sure if the efforts your law firm makes toward securing its data are effective.

It makes sense that managing partners of law firms would want to concentrate on the business of law rather than spend precious time attempting to grasp the intricacies of cybersecurity. But, managing partners also understand how important it is to secure their firms’ data.

So, how does a savvy law firm strike a balance: not wasting time (and money) on something better left to experts, but ensuring that its data is completely secure?

There is a way for law firms to benefit from military-grade cybersecurity without the hassles that accompany elite in-house security. No personnel management. No constant upgrades, patches, or maintenance. No unexpected expenses, such as the sky-high cost of replacing a server. No downtime. No cumbersome back-ups. Just peace of mind.

When a law firm opts to work with a cloud environment, such as Legal Workspace, security stops being an issue that anyone in the firm needs to consider.

No more worries, just security

Law firms can be lucrative targets because they store privileged information that hackers can use in unintended ways. If your law firm’s cybersecurity isn’t up to snuff, it could mean that you are at risk. Having holes in your cybersecurity could be considered the equivalent of leaving privileged information out in the open for anyone to take and use.

And, if a law firm’s technology isn’t up-to-date and fully operational, that means a different sort of problem. What would happen if your server failed? How much time – and how much data – would you lose?

When you work within a cloud environment specially designed for law firms, you don’t have to worry about any of those issues any longer. With geographically redundant data centers, such as those used by Legal Workspace, your data is safer in the cloud than it could ever be in an on-site server. Access to those data center servers is limited, and staff is always on-hand to monitor for and prevent problems – and to react should anything unexpected occur.

Advanced data encryption, firewalls with a sophisticated detection system, and automatic back-ups secure your data so well that passing compliance standards, such as HIPAA and PCI, is just a regular part of what Legal Workspace does.

What to do instead

If you make the switch to the cloud and your security worries disappear, your attorneys and employees can spend more time on revenue-generating activities. And, if you have an IT person on staff, he or she doesn’t need to spend the day running from place to place, troubleshooting and patching up problems. Instead, that person can concentrate on strategy: discovering and implementing new technology that will save your law firm time and money.

As for law firm management? Well, you can just sleep better at night, knowing that your data is secure, and your clients are happy.









Bill More Hours with the Cloud

Cloud Environment Creates Extra Time

“Efficiency” has become a buzzword in the legal services industry over the last several years: As corporations become more concerned with legal budgets, and procurement departments become more involved in the selection and retention of outside law firms, law firms have leaped to the challenge.

Every law firm now seeks ways to trim the fat. Technology has played an important role in helping firms to eliminate redundancies and speed up time-consuming tasks. The cloud environment is one such technology that can make an immense difference in a firm by increasing its efficiency.

Tech hassles eliminated

When your server fails, how much time do you lose? How much data do you lose? And, how much does that matter to your clients? (Probably a lot.)

Moving to a cloud environment, such as Legal Workspace, eliminates catastrophic tech problems, and it takes care of the little blips, too. No one will need to worry about wasted downtime or redoing something that was lost when the system encountered a glitch and shut down temporarily.

Legal Workspace was built specifically for those in the legal profession. That means it knows what’s important to law firms – and what needs to happen for law firms to operate at an optimal level. Downtime will be a distant memory, and your data will be protected by military-grade security measures. No longer will administrators need to worry about backups, updates, or anything else that goes into IT management.

That returns time to employees and to attorneys. They can concentrate on the business of law rather than the hassles of technology.

Opportunities for adding extra efficiency

When you go through the process of migrating your data to the cloud, you have another opportunity to add efficiencies: by customizing your workspace with programs designed specifically to help firms manage business tasks.

Legal Workspace supports a wide variety of the most popular legal software and applications. That includes practice management software, document management software, time and billing software, and legal document generation applications. Its team will help you move any existing licenses to its cloud environment, as well assisting to design the workspace you need.

Those programs and applications are designed as time-savers. Moving to the cloud is a great opportunity to look at what’s available and determine the places where additional technology can bring you increased efficiency.

Time created by flexibility

Anywhere that your lawyers have access to their devices, they see the exact same workspace that they would if they were in the office. They have access to the same data without any impediments.

Is one of your lawyers stranded at an airport by inclement weather? No problem. They can still do exactly the same work that they would do if they were in their office. Is a group of your attorneys in court and needs documents pertaining to their case? Again, not a problem. Those documents are close at hand, in the cloud environment, ready and available to access. That very same workspace is available on any device: desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone.

If you put your head on your pillow at night wondering where the day went, the solution could be easy. Moving to a cloud environment creates more time for management, for employees, and for the attorneys who work at law firms.
