Recently, Sensei’s Sharon Nelson was featured in “Don’t let the abundance of tech offerings paralyze you from picking what you need” by Jason Tashea with the ABA Journal. The ABA Journal is read by half of the nation’s 1 million lawyers every month. It covers the trends, people and finances of the legal profession from Wall Street to Main Street to Pennsylvania Avenue.
Excerpt: In the ever-evolving world of legal technology and cybersecurity, it can be overwhelming to determine the right platform or vendor for a firm. But it doesn’t have to be.
Following the theme of “future-proofing your practice”, Sharon Nelson, president of Sensei Enterprises, and Jeff Richardson, partner at Adams and Reese in New Orleans, presented “Vetting Technology: Avoid Indecision Paralysis” at ABA Techshow on Friday.
For many, said Nelson, finding the right technology is “confusing” because it’s not what lawyer’s do—they practice law.
However, she noted that understanding technology is now the ethical standard in the majority of states, following the 2012 change to ABA Model Rule 1.1 on competence, which included a duty to “keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology” in its comments.
