Tools to get Legal Work Done
Microsoft Legal and Corporate Affairs (LCA) helps our legal professionals reach entirely new levels of productivity with solutions that work with offerings like Office 365, SharePoint 2013, and Yammer. We are partnering with Microsoft product teams to bring these legal specific productivity solutions to law firms and law departments.
Over the last year, Microsoft LCA has partnered with the Office 365 product team and select law firms to design a legal document management solution, Matter Center for Office 365. Our goal is to build a simple, intuitive solution for law firms and law departments so attorneys can work smarter and better together. Click here to learn more.
Attorney and Client Collaboration
Moving data to the cloud means attorneys can work from any device, anytime, anywhere—this opens up better ways to collaborate. Files posted on SharePoint 2013 or OneDrive for Business can easily be shared between attorneys, clients, and external partners. Contracts and other documents that require collaborative input can be completed faster. Case documentation is much easier to share with everyone that needs access.
Knowledge management is taking the way we share information today, such as emails, reports, and
case-related documents, and making it easier to find and use across the organization. Posting information to tools like Yammer and SharePoint 2013 makes it easy to discover. Put simply, less time searching for information can equate to more billable hours.
