Calloquy is the first remote litigation platform built for litigators and the nation’s leading provider of secure court reporting services. It is a safer, more secure, more intuitive, more efficient, platform designed for all stages of litigation. Calloquy was built by litigators who understand that when it comes to keeping data secure, the duties and challenges which attorneys face are numerous and multifaceted. Our layouts, with clear titles and traditional seating arrangements, mimic the look and feel of in-person proceedings and put litigators back on familiar turf. Calloquy’s integrated evidence management system allows attorneys and paralegals to upload exhibits prior to a deposition, mediation, or arbitration where it’s protected until needed. Calloquy prioritizes cybersecurity in its court reporting operations, closing a significant cybersecurity gap that exists with most other providers who rely on independent contractors to staff their jobs.
