In the midst of a legal recession, one might assume that lawyers’ greatest challenge is to attract and retain clients, increase revenues, control costs and operate more efficiently. This newsletter’s readers who are practicing lawyers and those involved in law firm administration (or both) face numerous challenges to operating efficiently.

We submit, however, that the No. 1 challenge to lawyers’ (and administrators’) efficiency is in dealing with the ever-increasing barrage of information (online and off) that bombards us day and night. The author claims no expertise in information technology, human resources management or time efficiency. However, we herein submit to our readers several anecdotal examples, and identify some of the consequences, of information overload, provide some recommendations that may apply to reduce the stress and help us proficiently filter through the info overflow, and invite your thoughts on the topic for a possible future update in Law Firm Partnership & Benefits Report.
