Higher productivity, faster client response, improved mobility and access, savings from reduced storage space and printing costs, increased security of documents and files…The benefits of a paperless office are many. Yet surveys show that the legal profession is one of the most resistant to a paper-free or less-paper environment.
Now is a good time to plan for a paperless law office in the new year.
Converting your firm to a paperless operation is not as overwhelming or as complicated as you think. With the decline in paper usage along with rise in digital consumption and mobile devices, you’re already on your way without even trying. But you’ll need to formalize the processes.
In this 40-minute session we’ll cover essential tools, protocols, and workflows to start and maintain a paperless office. You will hear from one lawyer who took his firm paperless and the process the firm went through, and from another small-firm attorney, on best practices for naming and storing digital files so you can easily find and retrieve them. We’ll wrap up with must-have tools and applications for every paperless law office.
