Electronic communications are a boon and a curse for attorneys. Many clients expect and prefer electronic communication and collaboration. However, there are ethical issues, such as protecting the clients confidentiality, maintaining privilege and duties to prospective clients to keep in mind. These concerns must be balanced with a lawyer's need to communicate with clients to avoid the common malpractice complaint regarding a client's perceived lack of responsiveness.

What tools and technologies can lawyers use to enhance electronic communication with clients, collaborate on digital documents and reduce paper in the office? From certified delivery email services to online document review to digital signatures we will cover technologies that help law firms serve clients by communicating more efficiently and securely.

Speaker:
Catherine Sanders Reach, Director, Law Practice Management & Technology, The Chicago Bar Association
