Now You Can Do Everything Faster, Better and In-House
The Problem: Too Much Information. If you're a business litigation attorney or paralegal, you probably know by now that litigation support software is terrible. It's too complicated, it costs too much, and it never does quite what you want it to do -- because it was designed by people who have never actually handled a lawsuit. You wind up paying not just for the software, but also for an army of vendors, paralegals and/or contract attorneys to use the software for you. That sucks for you and your clients.
The Solution: Atomic Briefcase. Atomic Briefcase is the best way for you to keep track of all the facts, documents, issues, testimony, and other bits of information involved in complex business litigation because it was developed by a real trial lawyer. Here are just a few examples of what you can do:
Document Discovery and Tagging. You import documents, including email files, directly into Atomic Briefcase, and then easily search and open the documents, and tag them based on whatever criteria you want (e.g., based on issue, witness, privilege, importance or whatever). You can also export selected files using whatever names you want (e.g., Doc Prod 001, Doc Prod 002, etc.). That means the enemy cannot run up your client's expenses sky-high merely by asking for a ridiculous amount of e-discovery. You can see Atomic Briefcase in action for yourself on the Demo Videos page.
Exhibit Tracking and Lists. Don't you hate it when one document winds up getting 19 different exhibit numbers assigned to it? A single document can wind up being Ex. 15 at one deposition, Ex. C at another, Ex. 4 to somebody's declaration, and so on. With Atomic Briefcase, that's not a problem. You can see, at a glance, all the exhibit numbers that have been assigned to a given document, so that you know which testimony is about which document. You can also easily generate exhibit lists for any purpose (e.g., for attachments to a declaration), and export the files on that lists with whatever file names you want (e.g., Ex. 1, Ex. 2, Ex. 3).
Chronologies and Notes. Atomic Briefcase not only keeps track of your documents and emails, but also lets you take notes and link those notes to the documents and emails. You can tag the notes based on content (e.g., based on issues, or witnesses or importance), and generate chronologies for the case as a whole, or for your examination or cross-examination of a witness, or for opening statement or closing argument. So beautiful! It's also great for taking notes during a deposition, because your notes are time-stamped -- which makes it easier to find the corresponding passage of the final transcript -- and you can tag your notes by issue, witness, or any other criteria you choose.
Discovery Responses and Separate Statements. With Atomic Briefcase, you draft a given objection (e.g., attorney-client privilege or undue burden) or a given answer (e.g., a promise to produce all non-privileged documents) once, and only once. After that, you just check boxes to include the objection or answer in subsequent requests. So when the enemy bombards you with hundreds of redundant discovery requests, they're only wasting their time, not yours. Once you use Atomic Briefcase to draft discovery responses, you will never go back to copying and pasting again. Preparing separate statements for discovery motions is just as easy: you check boxes to include whatever points and authorities you want to make about a given request. No more scrolling up or down to copy and paste. Plus, if you decide you want to change a passage, you change it once, and that change is instantly made throughout the document.
Separate Statements for Summary Judgment Motions. Because you've actually drafted these, you know what a nightmare it is. But the nightmare is over, because with Atomic Briefcase, you just check boxes to designate which material facts apply to which causes of action or defenses, and all those pesky citations to supporting evidence follow along. Plus, if you need to make a change (e.g., to refer to a different passage of a deposition), you just make it once, and it instantly updates throughout your document.
