Cloud service providers still haven’t made the legal industry a true believer in the cloud’s cost-efficiencies just yet, according to the results of the 2019 LTN Law Firm Tech Survey. 

While lawyers are beginning to embrace the cloud, 58% of firms polled in the survey, which gauges top U.S. law firms’ technology opinions and usage, said their biggest cloud challenge is the cloud’s cost savings not being great enough.

Miles & Stockbridge IT chief information officer Kenneth Adams said his firm has used the cloud for roughly five years, and praised the cloud’s efficiency and cost-effectiveness, but he still hasn’t seen similar cost savings from a cloud-based email platform yet. ”We still have an in-house email [system] because the cost isn’t worth it going to Office 365 for email. It’s so cost-prohibitive,” he said.
