Fast and secure access to documents
Electronic court books provide compelling advantages over the paper equivalents. The court book documents are always available, securely stored, and backed up and fully searchable.
More efficient work processes
Document administration is a pain point during any paper-based trial and detracts from the more valuable work of your legal team. An electronic court book reduces paper handling and so, including printing and photocopying, makes updates to the court book easier, and automates evidence management tasks.
Simple and effective evidence presentation
Evidence presentation is key to how well an eHearing runs. Epiq delivers high-definition displays, meaning complex spreadsheets and poor quality documents remain legible even when zooming in on the detail.
One of the greatest advantages of an electronic hearing – and something that may really alter the outcome of a case - is that the cross-examiner is able to question the witness faster, enabling them to build momentum more easily.
A fully hyperlinked transcript makes the preparation of closing submissions at the end of the hearing much more efficient than for a paper trial. Reports to the client can also be prepared during hearing hours, rather than for the transcript to be published that evening.
Confidential and secure
Epiq provides each party access to their own private copy of the court book. This reduces risk and ensures each party’s documents, notes, and annotations will not be shared with the opposing side.
