Recently, I had a debate with a colleague about technology adoption by lawyers. Specifically, the conversation revolved around smartphones and tablets, and we both concluded that solo or small firm lawyers tended to have greater adoption, and use, of mobile products. The reason: restrictions or limits on technology in bigger firms. That’s not to say that BigLaw lawyers aren’t using mobile devices, it just means they’re not using them as wholly as small or solo attorneys do.
I’m curious though, what do you think? Are solo or small firm lawyers more likely to be early adopters and integrate mobile devices into their everyday work? Take the poll or let me know in the comments.
