‘Above the Law’ features Lexbe for Cloud Document Management

Lexbe was recently featured in the leading legal blog: ‘Above the Law’ in a post entitled: Today’s Tech: A Litigation Attorney Uses Technology To Level The Playing Field.

A practicing litigator was interviewed and noted that technology in general, and cloud computing in particular, helps a small law firm to stay competitive in today’s constantly changing legal landscape. “Technology is the great equalizer between solo and small law firms and large firms. For smaller law firms it puts you on a level field with law firms many times your size. I can now handle 2 or 3 complex construction litigation cases at one time and it doesn’t take over my practice.  I can get through 30,000 documents quickly and narrow them down to what I really need to look at.”

Above the Law noted that Lexbe helps small firms handle the big cases. The interviewed attorney noted that “I handle a lot of cases where upwards of 30,000 docs are produced. These documents used to fill the room. Now I buy access to Lexbe on a case-by-case basis and then search the documents using Boolean logic.”

Lexbe speeds up review and allows for attorney, case and time leverage. Above the Law continues: “So a process that used to require six associates days to read through the documents can now be accomplished in minutes. Because of the Lexbe software, the entire playing field has been leveled for my firm.”
