The award, based on votes by readers of ALM's The Recorder, confirms that nimble startups can succeed in an industry dominated by giants
BERKELEY, Calif., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a development that reflects its growing presence in the ediscovery and litigation market, Everlaw has been voted the Best New Legal Service by the readers of American Lawyer Media's flagship California publication, The Recorder. This recognition is welcome validation of Everlaw's practitioner-centered design process, and a sign that small, nimble startups can disrupt a market dominated by industry heavyweights. With the release of automated reviewer QA and more unique features planned for 2014, Everlaw intends to continue setting itself apart from the major players.
"We're honored to win this award, particularly because it is bestowed by the readers of The Recorder, real-world practitioners who are the ultimate authorities on what makes a truly great service," said Everlaw founder and CEO AJ Shankar. "When we set out to make Everlaw the best ediscovery and litigation platform, we knew we would have to see the world through the eyes of heavy litigators, addressing their challenges above all else. This award is a signal to us that this approach is working, and encouragement to remain uncompromising in our practitioner focus."
As a recent example, Shankar points to the development of Everlaw's new automated document reviewer QA feature. Large cases often require small armies of attorneys to review mountains of potentially relevant documents. Extensive interviews by Everlaw revealed that the case leads managing this process had very little insight into the true accuracy of their reviewers, and what little they knew was often cobbled together manually and inconsistently. Everlaw's solution monitors reviewer performance in the background, comparing ratings between reviewers and administrators to automatically compile reliable and actionable quality statistics. Armed with this information, case leads can now make informed decisions about whether and how to intervene in the review process, and whom to hire for the next case.
As today's award confirms, the nation's top litigators have welcomed Everlaw's startup approach, with Everlaw in use at AmLaw 200 firms, 11 of the top 20 class action firms, and over 55% of state attorneys general.
Everlaw is building the world's most advanced litigation platform, beginning with ediscovery, by making the most cutting-edge technology accessible with elegant and intuitive design. Search results and doc-to-doc navigation are nearly instantaneous, the interface is simple, modern, and works on any browser, and everything is provided for one low per-GB fee (no fees for user licenses, processing, production, training, support, etc.).
