The Rules Have Changed

In 2013, the ABA Model Rules were modified in a couple of significant ways as it relates to technology. To date, Ohio and 25 other states have adopted the changes I'm about to describe. If your state hasn't adopted the changes yet, I would expect them at some point in the near future. No state's rules of professional conduct can continue ignoring technology for much longer (Michigan, Indiana & Kentucky, I'm talking about you).

One of the most common tasks performed in NetDocuments is to send a copy of a document to non-NetDocuments users, through email. If you are using Internet Explorer, you have the option of integrating with your local email client to send that email.

If you use Chrome, Firefox or Safari, that option is not available. Instead, users receive an HTML email dialog, that they fill out. There is now a new tool available to them in NetDocuments following the January 19th update. When using the Email Copy and Deliver a Secure Link options (without the Desktop Email Integration enabled) users now have an "address book" available to them.

Barron Henley was named as one of 50 invite-only members of the second TBD Law conference in St. Louis on February 26-28, representing some of the most innovative and forward-thinking solo and small firm lawyers to step outside their comfort zone to reimagine the law practices of tomorrow. The event, a joint effort of the online small firm community, Lawyerist.com and meeting facilitation company, Filament , is focused on convening innovative small firm lawyers and changing the nature of legal conferences and the legal profession.

“The first TBD Law conference was the two most valuable days of my professional life as a solo, and I will continue to reap the benefits of these two days for years to come,” said 2016 participant Megan Zavieh.

We’re that sure you are already comfortable with the high level of security that is built into the NetDocuments architecture and data center infrastructure – all to protect your data. Indeed, we often cite the fact that your data is more secure inside NetDocuments that it would be on your local network file server!

So we’re pleased to pass on the news that NetDocuments continues to enhance its security standards and just been awarded SOC2+ certification as regulated by leading financial institutions, known as the InfoSec Group. This is in addition to the other SOC 2 Type 2, FIPS 140-2 Level 3, SEC/FINRA, ISO 27001, and HIPAA compliance certifications that NetDocuments has already achieved.

Larger data sets tend to have duplicate content. You might be copying information form multiple lists or speadsheets and want to remove any duplicate content. In situations like this, removing the duplicates comes in quite handy.

To remove your duplicates, go to the Data tab, and select "Remove Duplicates" (under Tools). A pop-up will appear to confirm which data you want to work with. Select the data set and select "Remove Duplicates" and you're good to go. This will remove duplicates for the data set you selected. For example, if you have a list of names and email addresses, you can remove duplicate email addresses to organize you list. our resulting list will have only unique names without any duplicates.
