Given the surplus of documentation, paperwork and research involved in the practice of law, it can be difficult to envision a paperless future for firms. However, a new survey from e-discovery provider kCura and Ari Kaplan Advisors is showing that dream may not be so distant after all, owed primarily to the explosion of mobile devices at firms and technologies that bring many of those physical components into the digital world. According to the survey responses, attorneys say that the law firm environment could be paperless in as little as 5 years, by 2020.

The response suggesting a departure from the heavily-papered law firms of yore came from 25 partners in the Am Law 200, many of whom (72 percent) have direct involvement into the e-discovery process. The partners tapped also had significant experience in selecting, implementing and managing technology in their firms.
