Managing Your Online Presence

By from Office
Recruiter, BCG Attorney Search
When I was an associate at a large international law firm, I shared a secretary with a highly distinguished, old guard partner who brought in substantial business throughout the course of his career, was a tremendously effective litigator, and did not use a computer. Ever. He did not even keep one in his office. Our secretary would print out his emails in hard copy for him to read. He dictated all his replies, and even dictated all of his briefs and motions, often over the phone when he was on the road for a case. And while you may know of similar attorneys who do things in the ''traditional'' way (i.e., before there were computers), chances are that the vast majority of attorneys at your firm, and indeed the vast majority of current practicing attorneys, are at least somewhat computer literate, if not downright computer savvy.
