Law Firm Cloud Survey
A survey on cloud usage by law firms was sent to International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) member firms via ILTA e-Groups by Fish & Richardson P.C. In cooperation with ILTA’s CEO, Joy Heath Rush, the survey was also sent to the Chief Information Officers of all ILTA Global 100 (G100) law firms. G100 firms are the 100 largest law firms in the world by revenue.
This survey was borne out of our ongoing strategic focus to make data-driven decisions at Fish. Fish’s Legal Technology Solutions group developed the survey with feedback from the ILTA Program Planning Council. We acknowledge that defining the “cloud” is a nebulous problem. Everyone has a different definition of the “cloud".
For this survey, client data in the cloud is defined as data that is not in a traditional data center where you rent racks or host servers in a law firm office location. We are including eDiscovery data hosted with a third party as being in the cloud.
