Proper document management is vital for law firms because it promotes information security. Securing law firms and their clients’ information is extremely important because losing an important document can have a direct, immediate impact on a client’s case; clients can also pursue legal repercussions against law firms if they mismanage or lose their documents. Part of proper document management for law firms is having a detailed audit trail for changes made to a document.
