Extranets used other than in major litigation

LaVern Pritchard, in a post dated Sept. 12, 2005 at Minnesota Lawyer, mentions a couple of uses of extranets that do not involve litigation. The legislative group at Winthrop & Weinstein uses them during legislative sessions to keep clients informed about bills. The firm also supports a real estate client by hosting master documents that the client needs, “allowing it to close transactions several days sooner than it once could.”

Although I have been dubious about the spread of extranets (See my post of Aug. 27, 2005.), these examples widen the scope of their applicability.
