In the latest episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report (recorded several weeks ago), called “Coronavirus Looms – Can Technology Replace Travel?“, Tom and I looked at the practical impacts COVID-19 and pandemic concerns might have on ways we work together.

We were a bit closer the the mark than we had hoped to be about how quickly these issues might come front and center in the practice of law. Quinn Emmanuel’s decision to implement “a work-from-home period” is a recent example of what we might expect to see as we face the effects of this novel coronavirus.

Here’s the short summary of the episode:

When a large-scale disaster strikes, travel suffers, but given today’s technology, is travel even necessary anymore? Dennis and Tom discuss how remote collaboration tools – Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and others – have evolved over the past few years, and provide their tips for video/phone conference etiquette. In their second segment, they explore what new studies say about the safety of public Wi-Fi.

As always, stay tuned for the parting shots, that one tip, website, or observation that you can use the second the podcast ends.

In the episode, you’ll also get to hear which one of us has the greater fear of #covid19, whether video phone calls snuck up on us, and more of our takes on what works well in today’s collaboration environment as we seem to be moving to a period of fewer in-person meetings.

It should not surprise you to learn that remote collaboration and how to accomplish it successfully is a major theme of our new edition of our book, The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies.

You can find the episode here. Thanks for listening.

As always, Tom and I would be happy to present this topic (or any other topic) to your group, just not in person for a while.
