One of my early challenges was finding a way to manage the tasks to my internal staff as well as my virtual paralegals and law clerks. Recently, I came across a product called base camp which provides an extranet service. The purpose of base camp appears to be focused on software development. However, it is easily customized to meet to my case management needs. Base camp has an option which allows for encryption. Thus part of the product is that it allows each client with an internet connection to see exactly what the benchmarks are in the case, what the budget is in the case, the tasks assigned and the goals which are sought to be achieved. Yes, even an independent practitioner such as myself can have an extranet in today’s technology world.
