Family Lawyer’s paper addiction to paperless existence

Grainne Fahy, Partner, IAFL fellow and BLM's Head of Family Law in London and the South East, talks about her paper addiction, despite being in an evolving legaltech world, and how Covid-19 changed her to a paperless existence for the better in Today's Family Lawyer.

"I have a confession.

Despite being a fairly well technologically adapted, middle aged partner in a law firm, up until just under two years ago, I ran my files completely paper based.
I duly read emails, printed the emails and filed the emails. I had pleadings folders and correspondence folders for each client – some of whom took up whole filing cabinets they were so voluminous."
