Becker & Poliakoff
I and many of our attorneys travel extensively within the state - in part because of business with state government in Tallahassee, in part because we have offices and clients throughout Florida.
I anticipate that I'll be traveling at least several times a month in 2007, which is pretty comparable to my 2006 schedule. I personally travel at least several times a year internationally, at least two dozen times a year to other states and a like amount within Florida. Many of our attorneys have similar travel schedules.
We have not found that technology (such as video conferencing) has cut down much on travel, so much as it has made more frequent meetings and greater participation possible. Our firm's travel needs remain pretty constant and continue to grow.
