In the ever-evolving legal landscape, eDiscovery plays a pivotal role in the efficiency and success of case management. The process of reviewing vast amounts of electronically stored information (ESI) can be time-consuming, expensive, and fraught with risks. Everlaw’s integrated suite of post-review tools called Storybuilder transforms these challenges into opportunities for seamless collaboration, enhanced organization, and improved workflows. In this blog post, we will explore how Storybuilder, available through Everlaw powered by Sandline, empowers legal professionals to craft compelling case narratives, manage transcripts, create timelines, and conduct live depositions all in one secure platform.
Streamlining Case Narratives and Collaboration
Storybuilder provides case teams with a single secure location for collaboration, bringing efficiency. Instead of enduring the inefficiencies of conducting a review in one tool and then using another for post-review efforts, legal professionals can now seamlessly work together in one platform.The integration reduces data mismanagement and version control issues. It streamlines the workflow, saving time and resources.
Enhancing Deposition Preparations
One of the standout features of Storybuilder is its ability to help legal teams prepare for depositions effectively. Users can highlight deposition testimonies to use during witness questioning, and they can even chat live with their team while prepping for or conducting depositions. This real-time communication facilitates quick decision-making and ensures that all team members are on the same page, resulting in more successful and impactful depositions.
Efficient Task Management and Timeline Creation
Managing a case involves numerous tasks that need to be assigned, tracked, and completed in a timely manner. With Storybuilder, users can create, assign, and track tasks for each case team member, streamlining the overall case management process. Additionally, the platform allows users to arrange key documents, events, and profiles of important individuals into cohesive case timelines. These timelines provide a comprehensive view of case progression, aiding critical information identification and persuasive arguments.
Seamless Document Export and Import
Moreover, exporting and importing documents into a separate post-review tool can be time-consuming and may lead to momentum loss. Storybuilder eliminates this issue by enabling users to instantly generate detailed exhibit lists for easy export. This feature ensures seamless transitions between review and post-review, maintaining momentum in legal proceedings.
Automated Recommendations and Advanced Search Capabilities
Locating impactful testimony and relevant documents can be a daunting task, given the sheer volume of ESI involved in eDiscovery. Storybuilder simplifies the process with advanced search, finding impactful testimonies in transcripts. The platform offers automated document recommendations, saving users time and effort.
