Lawyers struggle with confidentiality related to communicating with clients in a secure way. While e-mail has been accepted as a reliable method, if only because of an expectation of privacy, you may be more concerned about sending an attachment. Yousendit.com is frequently mentioned in legal technology circles as an easy and reliable way to send large files. You upload the file to Yousendit’s Web site and your recipient accesses it there.
Microsoft Outlook users could quickly send files using a plug-in. Yousendit has recently updated their Windows and iPad software and have now added an Android app and support (still beta) for Macintosh OS. Yousendit supports e-signing as well as secure e-mail, and may be a good way for lawyers to send and receive files from clients and keep them in a native, electronic format.
