They call it the depo room. It's a small cube of space on the freshly revamped 12th floor of a downtown Columbia office building where the products liability defense firm of Bowman and Brooke opened its southernmost office a year ago. The room has one desk with a chair. Atop the desk are a keypad, a mouse and a scanner. Dominating the wall opposite the desk is a massive video screen, a camera perched unobtrusively atop it. When Joel Smith, the firm's managing partner in Columbia, settles into the chair and hits a few buttons, the screen goes live with a view of a similar room at the firm's headquarters in Minneapolis.
