New Addition to the Firm's Armory:
Richard S. Alembik, PC now operates a full-service videoconferencing
studio (featuring the VSX 7000e by POLYCOM®)
in its own offices.
Until recently this technology was limited to just a select few
large international firms. This on-site "virtual airline"
frees our clients and colleagues from dependency on the big firms
and offers them some exciting new options in three distinct ways.
Attorney and Business Conferencing
The firm's videoconferencing service can put anyone into virtually
any conference room or law office in the globe.
But now that person can also be home in time for family dinner.
Needless to say, the firm's clients can meet with its lawyers and
staff, or with other colleagues (existing or potential) in order
to cement new relationships and business deals that would previously
have been too expensive or inconvenient to achieve. This technology
allows conference participants to speak in a normal tone of voice,
and to see and hear the other participants without the difficulty
associated with old-fashioned telephone conferences or inadequate
"toy" web-cams. It also allows multiple participants to
engage in the same web-conference from multiple locations.
Long Distance Alternative Dispute Resolution
parties to a dispute (who are more commonly separated by a continent
or an ocean these days) videoconferencing technology is generating
exciting new problem-solving techniques at a significant cost savings.
Parties can now negotiate and mediate with the personal touch that
results from seeing the other party and from being able to visually
examine documents and exhibits in real time. A successfully mediated
or negotiated dispute can save the firm's clients legal and travel
expenses for a fraction of the cost (financial or otherwise) of
If litigation (or arbitration) cannot be avoided, then videoconferencing
can make it much less expensive to pursue. The firm's clients generally
prefer to put the money saved when attorneys and witnesses do not
need to travel in their own pockets. A witness who might otherwise
not be examined or deposed due to the prohibitive cost of travel
might get a second look and might therefore become an invaluable
element to a case if he or she can be examined or deposed remotely.
Richard S. Alembik, PC is excited to offer its clients and colleagues
trend-setting technology previously only available to the mammoth
law firms, but with a small firm's personalized approach to which
the mammoth firms can never adapt.
