Collaborative Case Management

Sharing case management information among many local counsel and clients is often difficult.

It is even more difficult to provide a common database tool that allows all appropriate parties to update litigation case management information that needs to be maintained based on information each respective party obtains.

Litigation support legal extranets help address this issue. These systems can be deployed in a manner that allows the appropriate data points for a litigation to be tracked, and so that appropriate counsel and client contacts can update the database as needed. Master, administrative type users are granted the ability to run standard reports which are distributed amongst appropriate staff. The same administrative type users maintain the picklist information available within the legal extranet.

Properly deployed and managed, legal extranet systems make all litigation case management information instantly available to all members of a litigation support team. And, the information is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, regardless of where one is at (e.g. there is no need to be in the office to access a local case management database containing this information).
