Speaker: Todd Scott, Vice President of Risk Management for Minnesota Lawyers Mutual

This program, featuring Chris Sullivan, Partner at Lindquist & Vennum LLP, and Todd Scott, Vice President of Risk Management for Minnesota Lawyers Mutual, will examine the ethical rules, legal authorities and practice management considerations implicated by the expanding reliance on cloud computing services such as Dropbox. Many lawyers in firms of all sizes and practice areas routinely store their client and law firm data on servers owned, maintained and secured by third persons, over whom the lawyer has virtually no control or authority, other than might exist within the four corners of a boilerplate user agreement, the terms of which the lawyer is required to accept when opening the "cloud computing" account. The speakers will share their knowledge and insights on the risks and advantages of cloud computing services, and provide guideposts that will help you navigate this time saving, but potentially problematic aspect of modern law practice.
