Episode Notes

“Whether you are negotiating [cloud-service contracts] or not, there are a variety of terms you should look out for.” —David Tollen

As more law firms go paperless, using cloud services for billing, timekeeping, and client files is common. But not all cloud services, especially those that offer free packages, will promise to keep your client data secure. Many of these services even reserve the right to use the data you store with them in marketing materials. David tells us what we should do about this and what we should look out for when subscribing to a new cloud service.

David Tollen is the author of ABA Publishing’s bestseller, The Tech Contracts Handbook: Cloud Computing Agreements, Software Licenses, and Other IT Contracts for Lawyers and Businesspeople. He also provides advice and assistance related to e-commerce, social media, industrial design, and intellectual property.
