 My last blog post, 5 Ways Law Firms Can Achieve Savings Through Print Fleet Management, was the first of a 2-part series with some helpful tips for law firms looking for cost-control or cost-recovery solutions through managed print services.

It seems that "green" sentiments have seeped deeper into our consciousness and have begun to influence more day-to-day processes and decisions, including those in the legal industry.

Efficient, secure document management is important for any organization, and for law firms, it's absolutely critical.

Paperwork is at the center of many legal processes and workflows. From pleadings and discovery documents, to forms and case files, there are many critical documents circulating through firms at any given moment.
