Depending on your law firm’s setup today, it may be difficult for your attorneys and support staff to send large files during litigation, e-discovery, or production while maintaining security and compliance.
This is usually the case when if your firm is still using legacy filesharing methods like secure FTP or more laborious filesharing methods such as courier that requires flash drives or external hard drives being shipped. These methods often require intervention from the IT team and do not allow attorneys and support staff to share files on their own. If a matter is time-sensitive, staff may end up resorting to using their own personal drop boxes or breaking up files to send in multiple unencrypted emails, which is a security concern.
In order for sensitive information to be shared efficiently during litigation, e-discovery, and production, it’s critical that your staff have access to a self-serve file sharing solution.
What to look for in a new file sharing solution
When searching for a new file sharing solution for your firm, you should keep these features in mind:
Large File and Folder Sharing
During e-discovery, production, or a corporate transaction, you’ll often need to work with very large files or high volumes of information at once. It’s critical that your staff have access to a robust solution that can support unlimited file attachment sizes as well as the ability to attach folders.
High User Adoption
If you expect your attorneys and support staff to use the new file sharing solution, you must factor in their experience as part of your solution evaluation process. There’s nothing worse than deploy a new solution, only to find out that your staff don’t want to use it because it’s too difficult to use. Find a solution that’s intuitive and as easy to use as email.
File transfer speeds make a significant difference when working with large files or large volumes of information. Ensuring that your file sharing solution has high transfer speeds will ensure that your staff aren’t waiting hours or even days for files to finish transferring.
