Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP Selects Courtroom Insight for Litigation Knowledge Management

Share Article

Pillsbury, a full service global law firm with 700 attorneys, selects Courtroom Insight to host its repository of information regarding experts, arbitrators and judges.

Courtroom Insight, the leading litigation knowledge management solution for sharing critical information about experts, arbitrators, judges and attorneys, is pleased to announce Pillsbury as its newest law firm client.

Pillsbury’s co-heads of litigation, Kirke M. Hasson and Kenneth W. Taber, recognized a need to better manage institutional knowledge of their numerous attorney relationships with experts, arbitrators and judges. “We were looking for a way to improve on reading firm-wide emails asking for information about prior experiences working with different individuals,” explained Mr. Taber. “Courtroom Insight provides a superior alternative.”

Lisa Gianakos, Pillsbury’s Director of Knowledge Management, said, “I’m always looking for new technologies and methods to improve knowledge sharing within our organization. Courtroom Insight has been on my radar for some time now, and with our litigation group’s support of the product, it was the right time to move forward. While we have systems that help us identify relationships, there was no way to see all of that in a simple and easy to use interface, like Courtroom Insight provides. By seeding the system with known relationships found in systems like CRM and docketing, we have a great jump start. Combined with the crowd-sourced approach and ability to enhance details on the fly with comments and ratings, I believe this solution will greatly enhance our attorneys’ ability to leverage the knowledge and experience of their colleagues.”

Courtroom Insight Chief Executive Officer Mark Torchiana said, “Our company is eager to work alongside Pillsbury’s knowledge management group to install our solution for the Pillsbury litigation team. They have already provided useful product feedback and we will continue to incorporate their input going forward to help entrench Courtroom Insight as the leading litigation knowledge management solution.”
