Do the lawyers in your
firm have a vague feeling that they are not getting enough
from the technology dollars
that they spend? Does your firm have a sufficient
technical platform in terms of work stations and networks,
but does it not do enough in terms of
technology into the practice of law?
Bridging the gap
between the special needs of your law firm and the
ever-changing technology frontier is no mean feat.
Does your firm have a
technology-oriented partner or a chief information officer
who spends the bulk of his or her
billable time keeping abreast of how technology
is changing the practice of law, and implementing these
technologies into your practice? Very few firms do because
there are very few lawyers who have the technical
expertise to do so or who want to virtually give up the
practice of law to concentrate on legal technology.
Yet, failing to implement
knowledge management, practice management, case
management, litigation support, and document management
systems into your firm not only misses the chance to
improve your ability to attract
and retain the clients you want by providing
higher quality legal services in a more timely manner at
less cost, it also leaves you
vulnerable to competition from firms that do
take advantage of these technologies.
Group can be your
"Technology Partner," and help you leverage
technology to practice more efficiently, productively, and
profitably. Businesses outsource functions when it is more
economical to do so, and when they cannot develop the
necessary expertise in-house. Many law firms do the same
with regard to their information technology systems. The
McNeill Groupís resources include:
20 years of experience advising law firms how
to use technology to improve their practices, including
presenting dozens of programs for the Maryland State Bar
Association and other legal organizations.

Only the largest law firms can afford a staff with
all of these skill sets.
