Five years ago, if you asked law firm leaders from across the industry to discuss emerging legal technologies, you would have heard voiced concerns of potential security risks and the perceived cost of transitioning to the cloud. As an emerging technology offering, the applications and safety of the solution weren’t proven in the law firm industry.
Fast-forward to today and many law firms have changed course, some as early adopters and others out of necessity given the global economic shift due to the pandemic. Lawyers and financial professionals working remotely need more than web conferences and email to do their jobs; they need access to matter plans, online financial reports, and data analytics. Client questions haven’t stopped, and the ability to deliver exceptional value and client guidance remains unchanged.
And modern lawyers need this information at their fingertips—no matter where they’re working from or when they need it. Whether it’s due to client demands, work-life balance, or a global pandemic, legal professionals at mid-size law firms require 24/7 remote access to their office tools and data, regardless of their physical location.
