Cloud computing is a great solution for law firms, but with the growing number of different cloud storage and hosting services available, it can be difficult to choose the best option for your business. Dropbox’s Carousel, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Box Inc.’s Box, Lex Workplace by Uptime Legal, and Citrix’s ShareFile stand out from the crowd

Let’s take a look at each of these cloud solutions to see which one is right for your law firm.


Dropbox is a cloud storage service that allows you to centralize all of your files, photos, and videos rather than having them scattered across multiple devices and accounts on various platforms. It has a simple interface that allows users to organize their files and find what they’re looking for more easily. Dropbox integrates with your phone’s native camera app, automatically backing up new photos and videos to your cloud storage. It also makes sharing these files, photos, and videos with others easier via Dropbox’s file-sharing interface.

Google Drive

Google Drive is a component of Google Apps that offers 15 GB of cloud storage space. Google Drive, in addition to basic file sharing, allows collaborative work with other people via its unique sharing features. You can limit access to specific files and folders by changing their permissions while still tracking activity on these files. Finally, for added security, you can enable two-step verification.

Box Inc.’s Box 

Box by Box Inc. is a cloud content management platform that allows businesses to manage all of their files from a single location. It allows you to search through all of your documents, which are organized into folders for easy access. You can also collaborate on these documents with others by using Box’s collaborative workspace. Files stored on Box are encrypted both at rest and in transit, protecting your data from hackers.

Lex Workplace by Uptime Legal

Lex Workplace by Uptime Legal is a cloud-based practice management platform that helps your law firm manage internal documents and client data, including financial data. Its messaging system allows you to securely share files with clients and communicate messages between users. You can also integrate Lex Workplace with Outlook so that messages from your email account are automatically routed to the appropriate folder in Lex Workplace.

Citrix’s ShareFile

Citrix ShareFile is a file sharing and collaboration platform that allows you to centralize all of your files in one location and share them with clients or other people on different devices via its mobile app. You can also encrypt any sensitive data before it reaches the device of the recipient. ShareFile is compatible with Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Cloud, making it simple to share files in the correct format.
