Tech for Attorneys

Readers of The LAD know that a soapbox topic of mine is technology and its use by attorneys. Thanks to Ed Finkel and the team at EncoreTech for an insightful article on this topic. The article discusses the thorny issue of attorney adoption and strategies to overcome the (often typical) resistance encountered when introducing new tools. Even though the new tool may be faster-easier-more-efficient, changing work habits can be daunting for some.

The article includes insights from law-firm-leaders. Its a valuable read!
