Our firm’s attorneys needed a better way to manage information about the many arbitrators, mediators, and expert resources we use around the country.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Courtroom Insight, the leading online directory and review system for legal professionals, today announces Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice, as its first major law firm client. Courtroom Insight’s innovative solution is an online knowledge management system that enables law firms to privately organize and share their attorneys’ experiences about working with litigation professionals. The system dramatically reduces firmwide email requests for information and decreases research costs.
Courtroom Insight’s secure, cloud-based software offers Littler users the ability to track and share case-specific experience with expert witnesses, litigation consultants, mediators, arbitrators and judges, as well as to access Courtroom Insight’s public database of reviews written by other attorneys and professionals.
“Our firm’s attorneys needed a better way to manage information about the many arbitrators, mediators, and expert resources we use around the country,” said Scott Rechtschaffen, Chief Knowledge Officer at Littler. “We considered building an internal database but realized that Courtroom Insight’s ready-made solution was much more cost effective. Plus, it includes additional information about arbitrators, mediators and other professional resources not available elsewhere.” As one firm attorney noted, “I have been waiting for something like this forever.”
With Courtroom Insight’s sophisticated knowledge sharing solution, Littler’s 1,000-plus attorneys can instantly access information about the experiences of other firm attorneys. The readily available information increases attorneys’ effectiveness and confidence when dealing with experts, judges and opposing counsel both inside and outside the courtroom.
“Littler is an acknowledged technological leader in the legal industry and we are excited to be working with them,” said Courtroom Insight CEO Mark Torchiana. “Our successful deployment at Littler will reinforce the firm’s reputation for innovation and serve as a valuable testimonial for our new product going forward.”
Courtroom Insight’s private law firm product is the newest service provided by the company. It was developed with significant design input from Littler’s knowledge management group. Available system customizations include single sign-on and integration with existing enterprise search technologies.
