Opus 2 International, a global litigation services and software development company, today announced that one of the top 5 largest law firms in the US and worldwide has selected Opus 2 Magnum™ software for case preparation across the firm's North American and EMEA offices. The firm sought a user-friendly and dynamic alternative to various under-utilized legacy tools it had licensed over the years. Headquartered in London and with thousands of attorneys in its US and international offices, the firm performed an exhaustive evaluation of litigation-oriented software products and ultimately chose Opus 2 Magnum for its collaborative aspects and its ability to simplify the preparation of complex MDL's, cross border litigation and deposition-intensive matters.
"For several years, eDiscovery and Big Data challenges have dominated the conversation in our industry; I'm pleased to finally have a tool that actually helps our attorneys during this critical phase of litigation -- developing their case after the key documents have been found," said a senior litigation support professional and member of the firm's software evaluation committee. "When our litigators see Opus 2 Magnum, their eyes light up, and I know this is where they will 'live.' It does exactly what they need, it is easy to use, and Opus 2 carefully incorporates the suggestions from actual attorneys using Magnum."
For this firm, finding an attorney-friendly software that picks up where eDiscovery platforms leave off was of paramount importance. Representatives of the firm cited an historic disconnect between software to manage review, pleadings and work product as well as clients' evidentiary materials -- a gap which is now bridged with Opus 2 Magnum. Additionally, the firm has gained collaborative capabilities, enabling team members to share single instances of documents, transcripts and deposition videos, as well as each other's coding, notes and tasks.
