Virtual Case Study Video conferencing technology is better, faster and cheaper than ever.
By Dana Dratch for the Daily Report

For Michael W. Johnston, it seemed like the perfect solution. A client needed to give a last-minute deposition. The problem: Johnston was in Atlanta and the client was in another part of the country. Though willing to make the trip, the client "wanted to make it quick," said Johnston, a partner at King & Spalding and the leader of the firm's labor and employment litigation practice group.

To save time, they arranged a real-time video conference for the next afternoon. “It was just like sitting across the table,” Johnston said. Though he uses video conferencing equipment for a fairly small percentage of his client interaction, his firm uses it once a week or more for interoffice meetings. The Atlanta office's three video conferencing systems are booked most of the time, according to Thomas B. Gaines Jr., King & Spalding's technology partner and chief information officer. “And we doubled our capacity [firmwide] last year.” At Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan, which also uses video conferencing, Eric R. Fenichel, a partner and member of the technology committee, said the equipment is worth it because of savings by lawyers who used video conferencing as substitute for travel. “The conclusion is that it paid for itself in the first year.”
