New research indicates that independent attorneys are more likely to adopt cloud technology in 2014. Nearly 40% of lawyers in small law firms – defined in this study as firms employing between 1-20 attorneys – are already using it and consistently cite mobility and freedom of access as among the benefits.
Security and ethics continue to represent the largest concerns, or barriers to adoption. However, despite these reservations, a majority of individual lawyers (50%) said they are more likely to use the cloud next year. Firm-wide, the results were more dramatic with 72% saying their firm is more likely to use the cloud in 2014.
