Taylor Wessing launches LitiGate across its network

UK top 50 law firm Taylor Wessing has launched LitiGate across its network of contentious teams, having been involved over the past three years in developing the litigation case management platform.

Taylor Wessing was approached by LitiGate during its early conception in 2018, in large part because of the firm’s extensive dispute resolution practice. It was one of three global law firms to establish an initial relationship, alongside Baker McKenzie and Mishcon de Reya.

LitiGate provides a centralised platform for litigators and helps to automate repetitive tasks, as well as applying analytics to the data.

The firm says it has been impressed by the technology’s ability to deliver cost and time efficiencies across numerous tasks and projects, from initial risk assessment to smart document searching, witness evidence review and bundling. Taylor Wessing made the decision to deploy LitiGate as “the only solution on the market that can automatically identify and classify facts, key events and issues from both filings and court documents as well as evidence, correspondence and other types of documents.”

Co-founded by CEO Nimrod Aharon, LitiGate enables disputes and investigations teams to instantly create detailed case chronologies, automatically classify all files and key events, cross-check and track the factual and legal issues, collaborate with clients, experts and counsel, and create fully court-compliant bundles.

Laurence Lieberman, disputes and investigations partner at Taylor Wessing said: “LitiGate is a perfect example of first-class AI technology that can revolutionise the way we support our clients. The digitisation of disputes is fast changing. In the last year we’ve seen our courts transform to virtual and digital reality, and LitiGate is a leading player in shaping this. It’s been a pleasure to work so closely with Nimrod and the team over the past few years and see how the platform has continued to evolve.”
