  • Tennis: Latest and greatest equipment won’t help if you suck. Law: Tech won’t help if you don’t have basic skills\n
  • Tennis: Know your opponent. Play their weaknesses. Outsmart them. Law: Know your competitors--what are they doing? Know opposing counsel--do your research. Use online tools. \n
  • Tennis: Try to play using your strengths. Keep your weaknesses hidden. Law: Whether gaps in knowledge, temperament, not tech savvy--know what you need to improve. Be self aware.\n
  • Kidding! Tennis: Be a good sport. Call it in if you’re not sure. If not it’ll come back to haunt you. Law: Be aware of ethics--err on side of caution w/ tech, online presence, or case strategy. Pushing the envelope on ethics will only come back to haunt you.\n
  • Tennis: Most of the time play high percentage shots. And go for the winners when you’re in the perfect position. Play effectively. Tennis: Use tech wisely. Play it safe with tech and ethics. \n
  • Tennis: You can’t hit the ball if you don’t see it. That’s the point of the game, after all. Law: Stay on top of ethical guidelines and changes in law. Exercise due diligence w/ new tech, online interaction, and new ways of practicing law.\n
  • Tennis: Footwork is everything. If you’re out of position, you’ll have to play defensively, not offensively. \n\nLaw: Position yourself wisely. Adapt to change and incorporate wisely into your practice.\n
  • Tennis: forehand, spin, more emphasis on ground strokes. Law: Massive tech change, unbundling, outsourcing, online tools.\n
  • Technology is catching up to us and making the practice of law easier--Xerox eDiscovery prototype--large touch screen table.\n

  • “Within the lifetime of most readers of this book, our social and economic lives are likely to be radically overhauled as a result of the rapid emergence of a clutch of information and Internet-related technologies of unimaginable power.”\n
  • “All aspects of the raw technology with which lawyers are familiar will improve radically in a small number of years and thereafter, at an accelerating rate. Yet further advances can be expected: from the resolution of screen displays to the portability of equipment; from the speed of machines to storage capacity; from the availability of wireless connections to the bandwidth of these links.” \n
  • “My message to lawyers in this context is simple—far from approaching the finishing line, the race has barely begun.”\n
