  • This is excellent news. It is high time that modern day law firms catch up to technology trends such as cloud computing and the top-of-the line standards in handheld information devices (e.g. iPad). Any investment into technology solutions that then becomes sustainably renewed with each new innovation or development is one that is bound to save rather than spend.

  • I suppose they won't have to buy too many with all the redundancies.

  • How is an iPad an essential part of day-to-day work? And the fee-earners get to keep it? Hands up all those who think they will choose a low-cost product? Or will instead choose the latest over-priced, over-hyped gadget?
    This type of "idea" is, at best, laughable and, at worst, grotesque, particularly when Eversheds is making people redundant and outsourcing to save costs.
    Head-in-the-clouds-based solution more like.

  • I disagree entirely - the legal industry has always been one of the last to embrace technological advances that can make working more efficient and add value to the service a firm provides. It doesn't matter whether it is an iPad, a new Blackberry Playbook or any other handheld device - on a cost/benefit analysis - they make sense and will become the norm. Also consider the huge savings to be made environmentally in terms of paper!
