  • Naming conventions and information architecture should be carefully planned to ensure easy access and organization of client matters.
  • Ethical walls and retention policies are crucial for maintaining data security and compliance.
  • External access in Teams offers a frictionless way for law firms to collaborate with clients, but careful consideration must be given to the security and control of documents.
