I have been using Basecamp in my Home Office Lawyer practice now since December. My clients love it.

I have been using Basecamp in my employment law practice here in San Antonio, Texas for about a year and a half and can verify that clients really like it. It allows us to provide a level of transparency and involvement from clients and referring counsel that even the largest firms in town don't provide.

You know my thoughts. It is an awesome productiivty tool. An you are right, bringing clients and other lawyers into basecamp increases the number of projects which you are invited to participate in.

So what do I do about clients who DO NOT work for companies? How do I put them in the loop? Many of my clients are not working at the time of the case, so how do I add them.

I am in the process of implementing Basecamp and, in addition to other benefits, am really turned on by the idea of using it to stay "top of mind" for referral sources. An initial concern I have is protecting confidentiality and attorney-client privilege. I'm not worried about security, given that Basecamp has SSL, is login/password protected, and I can pick and choose who sees what. I'm getting at the issues that go along with giving someone who isn't an attorney of record access to what would otherwise be confidential client files. I suppose it's not a problem if you just post pleadings, etc. and don't share work product before it goes into the public domain. Just wondering about your experience.

I totally agree with you,Basecamp is really nice one.
