Switching to a cloud can save money by lowering IT and data center support costs, improving performance and scalability, and reducing storage costs.  However, stakeholders and counsel should be cognizant that cloud computing presents various legal issues around control and custody of data, data preservation and collection, data review and production, and of course, attorney-client privilege.
