  • Technology Education – Of Lawyers and “Geeks”

    Monday, July 8, 2013

    Today the world of the law is more than ever the world of the computer. Certainly the ubiquitous use of PCs and laptops in the law office, and of smart phones and tablets as lawyers’ constant companions, attest to this. But having technology tools available is not the same thing as lawyers knowing how to […]

  • ScanSnap Squad Small Biz Spotlight: The Solo Law Firm – Using Technology to Serve the “99%”

    Thursday, June 13, 2013

    My favorite small business is one that many people (often including those who are in it) don’t even think of as a business:  the single-practitioner law firm.  Of the one and one-quarter million lawyers in the United States today, half of them (according to the American Bar Foundation) are solos that hang out their own shingles […]

  • Can a Law Firm Really Be Paperless?

    Monday, November 12, 2012

    One of the leading document and file management companies serving the legal profession did a recent study showing that 28 percent of law firms surveyed either are paperless or plan to be within five years.  That, of course, leaves nearly three-quarters of firms still very much needing to tame the paper file beast.  Many of […]

  • Scanning Brings a New Dimension to Legal Precedent

    Monday, April 9, 2012

    A recent column in the San Jose Mercury News illustrates that change happens slowly in the law, where precedent (stare decisis, in the language of 2,000 years ago) remains preeminent – even when technology offers a better way. According to the column, a lawyer sought to bring a ScanSnap S1500 to the offices of the […]

  • Paperless Paths – A New Business Dynamic for Law Firms

    Monday, February 27, 2012

    As electronic tools and databases transform the practice of law, pundits contend that the documents and records common to all law firms face extinction, as scanned files or cloud databases replace hard copy law texts, briefs and client documents.  British technology consultant Richard Susskind even claimed in his book, The End of Lawyers?, that the […]

  • Scanning’s Role in Enhancing Technology ROI

    Tuesday, November 8, 2011

    Awareness of what technology can consume from a firm’s cash flow, as well as from lawyers’ billable time, gives a true picture of the return the firm gets on its technology spending.  It should be a given that all technology investments must provide a return to the firm.  A 10-percent return is usually considered too […]

  • Scanning Bridges the Technology Language Gap

    Tuesday, August 9, 2011

    Lawyers have a language all their own, and sometimes its purpose seems to be to obscure meaning rather than to facilitate it. The same can be said of many professional disciplines: accounting, medicine and investment securities, to name three. Professionals in such fields often interact, either in serving the same clients or working together in […]
