Iowa State Bar Association Committee on Ethics and Practice Guidelines Ethics Opinion 11-01

Iowa specifically considered “software as a service” (Saas) in Ethics Opinion 11-01.  In holding that the attorney would need to do due diligence in using any Saas, the opinion gave “basic guidance” in the forms of questions that should be asked:

Access
Legal issues; including, but not limited to, the track record of the company, where it is located, choice of law and venue.
Financial Obligation
Termination
Password Protection and public access
Data Encryption
