Frequently, in complex litigation, attorneys find themselves challenged with technical or financial elements in their case that require hiring an expert for assistance. Finding an expert is half the battle. The other half of the challenge involves finding a way to work with the expert. Recognized leaders in a field may not always be available locally, thereby making it necessary to go to other remote regions to find the right expert. Let’s face it, finding the best often means looking far and wide. When these experts work in distant locations across the country, or worse in another country, logistics of sharing case documents requiring the expert analysis, can prove challenging.
How does a legal team share documents with the experts, collaborate on related demonstratives and exchange work-product in a secure environment across geographic boundaries?
Capital Novus solves this problem with Cryptacomm, a secured virtual data room. Documents can be placed in the data room repository for sharing with the experts. Counsel/expert team members can check documents out for review and editing with version tracking. Automatic notifications of uploads ensure efficient downstream continuity in workflows associated with work-product development.
