A Mac shop with a bunch of InCopy users?
If you can afford it, I would suggest that you move to volume licensing and purchase software maintenance. Otherwise, you are pretty much guaranteed to be caught between the release schedules of Apple and Adobe in the future.
Otherwise - I've found CS5.5 to behave well under Lion. If you're going to upgrade retail licenses, you should probably download CS5.5 trials first and test before you buy.
I just bought a new MacBook Pro running Lion, and I'm running CS3 and CS4 in Snow Leopard in VirtualBox.
I work for a government agency and most the computers are PC's. The cross platform has not been a problem so far. Will upgrading solve the crashing problems?

I'd say "probably." You're not the only person to have posted regarding crashiness of CS3 on Lion. I'm using CS5.5 every day in Lion, with some minor issues but nothing that is costing me any time. But, to be frank, I feel like I oughn't have responded, as I don't know about what that upgrade will be like for your InCopy users, if they stay on CS4 or are also upgraded.
Well I won't upgrade unless we do all stations. I understand they don't work well unless they are in the same version. I actually have CS5 but don't use it for the cost to upgade all the InCopy Users. I thank you for your reply. I'm glad to hear CS 5.5 is working well in Lion. (so far I hate Lion)
I moved the document off the server to my desktop and so far no crashes. If I have another I will post. Thank you!
