New Everlaw Deposition Solution Improves Taking and Using Testimony
Major enhancements to Everlaw Storybuilder increase collaboration and save time in end-to-end litigation
OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Everlaw has announced the release of a new Depositions solution, enhancing its industry-leading Storybuilder technology to help lawyers successfully prepare for, take, and use deposition testimony throughout a case.
Expanding the powerful capabilities of Everlaw Storybuilder, which has enabled legal teams to build evidentiary narratives since 2015, the new Depositions tool applies Everlaw’s leading edge technology to bring deposition testimony into the 21st century.
By using Storybuilder and its powerful new deposition capabilities, lawyers will for the first time have an all-in-one, online solution at their fingertips anywhere and at any time. Storybuilder Depositions provides the ability to:
- Efficiently prepare depositions: Create outlines with questions; add or swap out exhibits, etc.
- Communicate in real-time: Securely orchestrate live depositions with colleagues and introduce evidence
- Summarize and search: Immediately record critical testimony from the deposition and search across all transcripts for testimony to be used at future depositions or court presentations
- Import transcripts: Upload the official transcript, linking exhibit numbers to key documents
- Conduct post-deposition workflows: Annotate and create follow-up tasks for trial
These features dramatically improve the entire deposition process, by providing lawyers a single solution to locate and use exhibits, prepare for and take the deposition, and then efficiently harvest the critical deposition testimony that has occurred over the months or years of litigation.
“Most of our partners aren’t involved in doing day to day document review anymore. So when they want to use these products, they’re trying to figure out how do I prepare for a deposition? How do I prepare for a trial or an arbitration? Everlaw Storybuilder allows us to take data that’s in the system and compile it for use for witness outlines or for trial prep.” -Donald McCann, Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan & Aronoff LLP
In 2019 alone, litigators created more than three thousand Storybuilder case outlines and accessed them almost fifty thousand times during trial prep. Depositions makes Everlaw Storybuilder even more powerful for legal teams.
To further expand access to Storybuilder, Everlaw is also announcing a new beta program that will provide access to Storybuilder as a stand-alone case prep tool. Registration is available at storybuilder.everlaw.com.
