Eversheds Sutherland launches CaseReady platform for litigators

    First international enterprise license of Opus 2’s flagship platform

    Eversheds Sutherland has launched CaseReady, a secure cloud-based platform that enables lawyers, clients and counsel to share case materials and work collaboratively on matters from instruction through to trial or settlement.

    Clients will benefit from CaseReady’s range of litigation features including e-bundling, evidence annotation and paperless trial presentation. It is an efficient cloud-based solution that removes the need for paper-bundles, reducing costs and security risks.

    Lawyers and clients can collaborate digitally in real time when reviewing case documents on the platform’s accessible interface.

    The global legal practice partnered with Opus 2 International, a leading cloud-based litigation and arbitration software business, to launch an enterprise licence of Opus 2’s Magnum software, under the name CaseReady. It is the first time an international licence of Magnum has been granted and will be fully supported by Eversheds Sutherland’s Litigation Technology Team.

    Paul Worth, Co-Head of Global Litigation, said:

    “Predictive coding might be the rock star of litigation technology, but a shared cloud infrastructure for collaboration between lawyers, counsel, clients and experts is the unsung hero.

    “CaseReady will significantly advance our litigation technology offering. It will provide our clients and our 800+ disputes lawyers with a smarter way of working for all major litigation, arbitration and investigations”.

    The adoption of this new technology by the Litigation practice forms part of Eversheds Sutherland’s wider innovation strategy. The addition of CaseReady will bolster the global legal practice’s suite of supporting technology available across its international network, and complements the existing document review platform, ES Locate.

    Oliver McClintock, Chief Commercial Officer at Opus 2 International, commented:

    “As the legal sector continues its well-publicised drive for innovation, we expect more firms to follow Eversheds Sutherland's lead in using Opus 2's technology to deliver the efficient conduct of litigation, arbitration and investigations proceedings end-to-end.”

    “For some time, the market has shown a desire to use Magnum more broadly, rather than simply at the trial preparation and hearing stage. The enterprise model, which is no longer limited to our US clients, is the future of how our technology will be adopted around the globe – early in the dispute lifecycle and across matters of varying profile.
