As a law firm owner, you want to ensure that your lawyers and attorneys access tools that meet law and bar rules regarding client confidentiality. Besides, it should also provide excellent sound and video quality and can easily integrate with your computer. Here we explore three choices:
This video conferencing program is free (one-on-one video meetings are unlimited, while discussions with more than three people are free for up to 40 minutes each). Some law firms and court proceedings in the US have also been using Zoom during the Covid-19 pandemic. Zoom is compatible with both Windows and Mac machines.
As an added advantage, some lawyers integrate Zoom with Mentimeter, a tool that makes presentations interactive by engaging audiences via live polls, word cloud, ranking, and even Q&A. Mentimeter is free for all to try.
If your law firm uses Office 365, Microsoft Teams will be an ideal fit. Your staff can access Teams if your law firm has an active Microsoft 365 subscription. Beyond just a video platform, users can also type in keywords, and Teams will play the relevant part of the meeting. It can also hold up to 250 attendees to any conference, although users can view only nine at any time. In terms of security, Microsoft teams use Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) for video, audio, and desktop sharing, all of which ensures that your conversations remain secure.
If your law firm uses the G-Suite, you will notice some great functions on Google Meet. Launching video calls using calendar links, meeting URLs, and dial-in phone numbers is very easy. Meet allows up to 250 users. Its security is also solid: the service requires a hard to crack 25-character string for meeting IDs.
Once you’ve decided on your preferred tool for video conferencing, it’s time to look at the technical aspects of making a great video conference.
As you are presenting your case or meeting clients professionally, your environment needs to look the part. Here’s how you create a clean and professional look:
