The legal industry is now focusing more on changes in Information Technology. IT changes, or not keeping up with IT changes, can create risks for their clients and their practice. Case Management Software, document management, email encryption, time tracking, billing contacts, case calendars and more have created an even greater reliance on IT infrastructure security, performance, and reliability.

Since interaction with clients is often done over the phone, you need to keep detailed records of each conversation in order to ensure you have the correct information. And making sure all your data is available all the time is a top priority.
