Law firms are asking their software providers:

What is the best way for our staff to work together as a team on matters and documents in a remote environment?

How do we manage accountability of staff when they are out of sight?

How can we efficiently work with clients on their documents and keep them updated about their matters?

What are best practices for internal office banter in a remote work environment?

Should anyone be allowed to broadcast messages to the whole firm?

How do you take advantage of software tools to promote your firm’s culture, to enable office socialising and to encourage professional collaboration?

Remote working, collaboration and client communications have become critical functions. Software providers are responding. Legal Practice Intelligence spoke with Jane Oxley of Smokeball about these issues. Listen to audio below.
