The wired world presents more options than ever for flexible work arrangements. Thanks to the march of mobile technology, attorneys and staff are able to take their offices on the go, working not just from the cubicle, but from the coffee shop, the beach or their own living rooms.
But while technology redefines what’s meant by going to work, it can also create potential problems. Some important guidelines can help firm leaders decide when to allow people to work from home and when it’s better to go the traditional route.
This is the first edition of Lawyers USA's Lawyers in Practice, where we discuss the hot issues facing practicing attorneys and law firms.
In this edition, we discuss how to prevent legal malpractice claims with better communication, with Jim Calloway, director of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Management Assistance Program, and Dan Pinnington, vice-president of Claims Prevention and Stakeholder Relations at LawPRO, a professional liability carrier based in Toronto, Canada.
