Litigation is a project in which the prime lawyer input of strategy, tactics and advocacy is only a part of the set of factors which must be marshalled and controlled to bring a case to a successful conclusion on time and within budget.
In addition to its pure eDiscovery services, Huron Legal offers a range of software tools and services to help litigation departments manage all aspects of their cases and, in particular, to organise, connect and retrieve all the key activities and evidence of a litigation matter.
To supplement its many home-grown resources, Huron Legal has been careful to acquire businesses (I wrote about its acquisition of Sky Analytics here) and to enter into alliances with companies with tools which add to Huron’s ability to help law firms and legal departments.
The latest of these is an alliance with Allegory Law, a company which specialises in web-based litigation management software. Huron says of this that:
Allegory is an easy-to-use web-based platform that provides litigation teams with a process and means for identifying, connecting, and retrieving all of the critical case information and evidence in one virtual location.
There is more about this, including a list of the services which Huron Legal can provide in conjunction with Allegory, in a press release here.
