What are firm documents in MyCase Drive?

The Firm Documents folder is a place to keep all of the documents that you'd like to store in MyCase that are not associated with cases. These are things like employee handbooks, policies and procedures, logos, marketing material, and more. This is handy because you and your staff can store these documents in MyCase and access them right from your desktop using MyCase Drive.
