The latest AmLaw Tech Survey results are out, and it concludes that “firms are making roof repairs rather than remodeling the kitchen,” in terms of technology spending. Law.com reports that firms are spending wisely on technology.

What’s interesting about this article is that it nearly identically tracks the conversation at a recent dinner I attended with Mark Chandler, the General Counsel at Cisco Systems. The firms represented there are all taking the same approaches to technology spending, concentrating on improving remote access, and upgrading to VoIP telephone systems.
