The Five Cloud Services You Need for a Server-Free Law Firm Plus How Technology Sabotages Productivity

By Kathryn Hughes | Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Originally published in the March 13, 2012 issue of SmallLaw: Has your small law firm cut the cord? No, not your cable service. We wouldn't expect you to practice law without sneaking in some CNBC and ESPN. We're talking about your servers — those computers that house software for billing, email, document management, practice management, and telephone service. In this issue of SmallLaw, law practice advisor Erik Mazzone discusses cloud substitutes for all five that will enable your law firm to cut (most of) its Ethernet cables and reclaim its server room. Also, don't miss the SmallLaw Pick of the Week for a thoughtful essay about how technology can make lawyers less rather than more productive.

Ediscovery 101 Class 4: How Computers Store (Discoverable) Data Plus Top Five Settlement Traps

By Kathryn Hughes | Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Originally published in the May 4, 2012 issue of LitigationWorld: Welcome to your fourth Ediscovery 101 class. Today in LitigationWorld, ediscovery consultant Tom O'Connor explains why "electronic" discovery is not as electronic you may think. Specifically, you'll learn how disk drives store data, which is critical if you want to avoid charges of failure to preserve or spoliation. That's because disk drives sort of have a mind of their own as to the data they store — data your clients may not know about. Ignorance of how disk drives function is no excuse when confronted with a motion claiming you didn't produce a key document. Also, don't miss the LitigationWorld Pick of the Week for the top five settlement traps to avoid.

All practice areas evolve, but none faster than litigation. Written by successful litigators and other litigation experts, LitigationWorld provides you with practical tips related to electronic discovery, depositions, litigation strategy, litigation technology, and trial presentations.
