Legal Tech Month | Essential Tech, Tools, and Talent for Small Firms

Event Description

Legal Tech Month: Jumpstart Your Practice

This session is part of MSBA's Legal Tech Month, 8 sessions in all.

A wide range of software and services are available to lawyers seeking new ways to run a more productive practice.

From time-tracking tools to case management systems, email providers to calendaring solutions, there are several heavy hitters in each major category of “firm management tools,” and most come in at a surprisingly minor price, thanks to wide adoption and extensive competition.

Maddy will identify common law-firm tasks and explain how to more easily complete them with tools that combine the best of human and machine intelligence.

You’ll learn:

• The technologies that deliver the biggest bang for your buck, with the least burden on your time, energy, and bank account balance
• How to find and recruit supplemental talent to support your firm, who you can truly rely on (think: contract and remote paralegals, law clerks, receptionists)
• How to offload thankless chores and unnecessary interruptions, including email and calendaring back-and-forth
• How to manage and assign projects and tasks efficiently
• Ideas of costs so you can accurately budget and plan ahead
• How to monitor systems and staff using collaboration tools
• Professional conduct & ethical considerations of remote tools and talent
• How to lead a more sustainable, secure, and scalable small or solo law practice in an office, remotely, or in a hybrid setting
