Following a two-year selection process, leading US defence litigation firm Cole Scott & Kissane has settled on Litify as its legal case management system, in one of the biggest technology investments ever made by the progressive Florida-headquartered firm.
The selection process, which concluded last month, included Nulaw, Filevine and Aderant Case. Going forward, Litify, which is based on the Salesforce platform, will help attorneys to manage their calendaring, tasks, and budgets, which are surfaced in Litify’s dashboard.
Speaking to Legal IT Insider, Jason Thomas, Cole Scott & Kissane’s chief information officer (pictured above), said: “Once the case has been onboarded, Litify will show who the parties are and the list of calendar events. In the first week, what do I need to do? If there is a trial, what are the deadlines? It helps attorneys to keep track and stay on top of the State rules and what is required to comply with them. All of that shows up in my dashboard or calendar.”
Litify provides a legal wrapper around Salesforce, which integrates with iManage and Office 365, meaning that a firm’s data can be surfaced in one place.
Founded by Reuven Moskowitz in 2016, Litify raised $50m in Series A funding in 2019 and its first full-service law firm went live in 2020. Its clients include US 800+ lawyer personal injury firm Morgan & Morgan and full-service New York City-headquartered workers compensation and personal injury law firm Shulman & Hill.
In August 2021, top defence firm Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer announced that it had selected Litify as its case and document management solution for its 750 users across 27 offices. Litify has seen substantial recent growth in clients in insurance defence, which is a mainstay of the practices of Cole Scott & Kissane’s attorneys.
Cole Scott & Kissane uses iManage Cloud and Aderant Expert plus iTimekeep for document management, practice management, and time and billing.
