Allegory, the industry’s leading litigation management platform, has announced a new suite of features that transform the way litigation teams manage transcripts and leverage deposition testimony.
Clients using Allegory’s secure workspace can now navigate synced deposition video, customize and export designations, review key testimony inline, and automatically link transcripts and exhibits across the case simply by dropping in court reporter files. These offerings round out capabilities already built into Allegory—a collaborative platform that enables litigation teams to quickly master everything that matters to their case.
“Over the past year, it became clear to our team that there was a pressing need to replace outdated transcript tools like LiveNote and TextMap, to deliver better functionality and user experience,” explained Alma Asay, the Founder and CEO of Allegory. “Our clients’ priorities are our priorities and the whole team is excited to deliver these eagerly anticipated features to meet our clients’ wishes to incorporate advanced transcript functionality into our litigation platform.”
Janelle Belling, Managing Director of the E-Discovery Services & Strategy practice at Perkins Coie LLP, who recently previewed the new features, was pleased with the results, stating, “These are the transcript tools our teams need to keep up with the increasing scope of litigation and to effectively work as a team to make the most of key testimony across the case.”
As the volume of active evidence in litigation continues to grow, corporate counsel are becoming increasingly budget-conscious and deploying legal operations professionals to manage the litigation process—demanding that outside counsel find ways to deliver more for less. In this context, modern litigation management solutions are a win-win for outside and corporate counsel.
Clinton Sanko, Shareholder and eDiscovery and Document Review Officer at Baker, Donelson, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC, and author of Baker Donelson’s LeanDiscoveryTM blog, responded, “I’ve been impressed with Allegory and the team’s understanding of the litigation market’s evolving needs. Trial teams strive to be organized, collaborate effectively, and be efficient at every phase of the case. Reducing redundancies by effectively sharing insights with everyone involved in a matter is critical to modern post-document production fact management. I’m thrilled that Allegory has furthered its mission of empowering litigation teams by integrating—and improving upon—important transcript functionality.”
As the eDiscovery market has matured and commoditized, Allegory is one of a handful of companies taking on the next wave of litigation technology—how to integrate and manage all of the key evidence, filings, transcripts, and insights that matter to winning a case. The company was founded by Alma Asay, a former top litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, who saw the increasing pressures on litigation teams to manage voluminous case-determinative information. Through its new transcripts release and in all of its offerings, Allegory’s mission is to understand the pain points of litigation and empower litigation teams to focus on winning their cases.
