Efficiency is paramount in today’s business world and is achieved, in part, with up-to-date technology systems. At Baker Sterchi, we have embraced cutting-edge IT platforms to manage everything from document storage and retrieval, to electronic discovery and the encryption of personal mobile devices.
Our firm takes advantage of cost-effective technology solutions available in the legal marketplace, allowing us to maintain efficiency as our business goal and also provide value to our clients.
We use managed services, lessening the need for extensive computer hardware infrastructures and the staffing hours needed to maintain a traditional office-based system. This software delivery model allows our attorneys to securely access and work with information from a computer or mobile device from anywhere.
In addition, our firm leverages host-based e-discovery applications offered by a variety of vendors to manage the document review process with efficiency, saving valuable time and money. Our in-house staff of technology experts includes litigation support specialists, who are at the ready to assist clients and our litigation teams during discovery, pretrial and trial. Because these talented staff members understand technology in a legal context, we often save on the costs of hiring outside vendors.
When practical, we use videoconferencing to conduct interoffice meetings among attorneys and with clients, and for depositions when our physical presence is not required.
The technology marketplace today is extremely competitive and when we buy hardware, software and fee-for-service-based applications, we look for the legal business tools that provide optimum solutions with the best value for our clients.
