Many lawyers use Gmail and Google Docs. I always suggest that if lawyers are going to use Gmail for client matters, they upgrade to the paid business version of the service for account controls and improved security. That business class service is Google Workplace (formerly GSuite, Google for Business, et al.) But there is more to the upgrade than just more secureGmail. There’s significant value and a more professional appearance if your emails are from your law firm domain instead of Gmail. Workplace users also get access to other communication tools, including (at the Starter level) hosting video conferences of up to 100. See Google Workplace pricing.

But Workplace users, and eventually all Gmail users, will soon see some changes, including a new toolbar. Catherine Sanders Reach, Director of North Carolina Bar Association Center for Practice Management gives us a brief overview of what is ahead in her post What’s New with Google’s Gmail and Docs?
