Over the past several years, I have noticed that non-lawyers are increasingly offering some of the services that were exclusively provided by lawyers such as estate planning and business start-ups. These companies are eroding legal business by offering ‘legal’ services, online, at competitive prices. The high overheads of traditional law firms are costly and time consuming compared to companies offering online services. Lawyers must appreciate how to evolve legal service provision to include online services. We attorneys need to look forward and embrace technology.

Everyone has a conference strategy. You work out which are the most interesting, or least boring seminars and who you are going to speak to in the break. You may even work out the route you’ll take to get to their stand to avoid certain exhibitors, because you’ve only got 15 minutes before the next discussion and you can’t afford to get lynched. Then it’s an indigestion-inducing, network-cramming lunch, before you’re off again, leaving exhibitors to wander around forlornly, swapping free giveaways and waiting to pounce during the next mad rush for caffeine.
The specialist digital dictation, workflow and mobility provider BigHand just announced their inclusion on NZ-based CloudCode register to champion best practice in Cloud services.
Using technology effectively is essential for anyone working within the legal profession. If you think about all the tasks that lawyers do; from drafting documents through to research, recording time, billing, due diligence and litigation; technology is at the heart of the working process. IT competency is important to clients and employers to make sure that work is produced as efficiently and risk-free as possible.
