Making use of technology ensures efficiency and productivity remain at peak levels, even during time periods that may otherwise be wasted, Toronto critical injury lawyer John McLeish says in Lawyers Weekly.

In an article discussing working on the go, McLeish says if he’s travelling, he always has a laptop in tow.

If stuck on a plane for three hours without the ability to connect remotely, because the firm has a paperless office, files can easily be downloaded, says McLeish.

“There’s no running around saying, ‘Get me this document.’ We can access everything so quickly,” says McLeish.

When on a trip, McLeish says he’ll often get work done in the lobby of his hotel in the early morning hours.
