Scope of Work
Litigation support encompasses a wide range of professional services and products that help attorneys acquire, organize, develop and present evidence throughout the course of litigation, from pre-filing investigation, through complaint, discovery and trial, to post-trial briefs and the appeals process.
Using professional litigation support services and advanced tools for litigation support, the litigating attorney can better utilize evidence and information to win or settle lawsuits. Professional litigation support products and services enable the litigator to control and manage much larger volumes of case material, and much more complex information - much more quickly and to greater effect than would be otherwise possible.
