Moving to the Cloud

Ellen Freedman

According to the 2012 ABA Legal Technology Survey Report, the largest demographic segment of law firms to move into the cloud this past year consisted of solo and small firms. They are migrating into the stratosphere at just over twice the rate of large firms. In the past year, the number of solo lawyers who reported having used cloud-based software increased six percent (to 29%); use among lawyers in small firms of 2–9 lawyers also increased 6 percent (to 26%). Compare that to lawyers in firms of 100 or more, where there has been no increase in cloud use from the previous year, and total usage is just 11 percent.
