The evolution continues. Here are the latest enhancements to your ediscovery, case management and trial prep software.
At our Summer Product Launch, we announced major updates to our Litigation platform. See below for a preview of what’s included.
Build a Case That Tells a Story
The key to winning your case is crafting a compelling story. That’s the philosophy our experts have developed from their years of firsthand trial experience. Nextpoint’s new Case Chronology feature makes it easier for our users to build that winning story.
Case Chronology enables users to categorize evidence and frame ideas around the key elements of your case: Facts, Issues and People.
Factscan be used to underscore the anatomy of a dispute, including important events, legal claims and defenses of each party.
Issues are those vital questions of law on which the court must rule.
People are important individuals or organizations in a matter.
After assigning Facts, Issues and People to pieces of document evidence, you can sort your Facts by date to view a chronological grid that depicts the case story and associated evidence.
These core building blocks exist in every case-building framework, no matter what tools legal teams use to assemble their argument. The main characters, key events and claims, linear timeline, and overarching themes come together to form a compelling legal case. Our new and improved Litigation platform now provides a clear and simple methodology to conduct this age-old case building process.
Watch Your Story Unfold Visually
The new Evidence dashboard provides a visual space for users to watch their story unfold and track the progress of their case. The dashboard displays quick facts and figures on the evidence, including a Fact Overview, Top Document Issues, Top Tagged People, and Most Viewed Documents.
The “Favorite Folders” section is individualized to each user so that they can quickly access the documents most relevant to their work on the case. Users can also utilize the new Case Note feature to record thoughts, ideas, and resources that are shared with their team.
The Evidence dashboard brings together all the pieces of a complex case story in one location, enabling users to draw connections and view trends in the evidence. New understandings of the case arise effortlessly, while the story you build in Case Chronology comes together seamlessly.
A Software Solution for the Full Litigation Lifecycle
These updates are part of Nextpoint’s longstanding goal to provide a single platform that supports legal teams throughout the full litigation lifecycle, from Early Case Assessment to trial presentation. Nextpoint started out as a case building and trial prep software, and we want to ensure this initial purpose holds strong as we expand to the rest of the litigation process. Alongside our comprehensive deposition/transcript management tools, this launch will enable our users to keep all of their case building in one place.
This product launch is also another step in our goal to provide better support for digital legal proceedings. All of our launches this year have centered on this objective, and we’re excited to show you another round of exciting updates at On Point, our annual user conference. Stay tuned to sign up for On Point on September 20-22 and see the latest advancements in our suite of end-to-end litigation software.
