Potential to use Legal Extranets as Brief Banks

The use of legal extranets is expanding to users within law firms as well, most notably to promote firm-wide, cross-office sharing of work product.

For example, the potential to share briefs and documents in a "Brief Bank" across offices is an emerging area of need. With collaboration technology, attorneys can quickly and easily share work product on a secure, web-based manner and facilitate efforts such as relying on particular documents as "best practices" and other strategies designed to allow attorneys and paralegals to work in a more efficient and productive manner.
