AUSTIN, Texas, January 30, 2013 – Mitratech, the leader in enterprise legal management solutions including matter management, e-billing and GRC management, today announced TeamConnect Deadlines will be available to clients in its forthcoming release.
Since partnering with Aderant in 2012, Mitratech has been working to fully integrate the CompuLaw-powered Deadlines.com engine into its TeamConnect Matter Management solution. With TeamConnect Deadlines, users have access to CompuLaw’s accurate date calculation engine utilizing the most complete, comprehensive database of court rules available on the market. This unique offering that supports automated docketing for litigated matters earned Mitratech a “Highly Innovative” designation in Hyperion Research’s 2013 Enterprise Legal Management MarketView Report.
“We are excited for another Mitratech first in the area of litigation management, for our clients and for the market at large,” said Eric Thurston, Mitratech president. “Through this integration, Mitratech is providing the automated deadline functionality used by most of the top law firms in America to corporate legal departments.”
Corporate legal staff members involved in docketing for litigation will, on average, spend over an hour researching the rules for a single jurisdiction and calculating court dates. The entire process is reduced to a matter of minutes using TeamConnect Deadlines. When combined with TeamConnect’s native rules engine, companies can generate reminders, tasks and run reports to track compliance creating the most powerful solution for managing litigation matters on the market today.
According to a survey from the American Bar Association, calendar and deadline-related errors are the leading cause of malpractice actions against lawyers. A single end-to-end solution not only creates additional efficiencies for legal staff members, but it protects staff attorneys involved in litigation from missing court deadlines which leads to potential malpractice risks.
“Accurately calendaring court dates and deadlines can be complicated and time consuming,” said Mike Barry, Aderant senior vice president. “We are excited to be partnering with Mitratech to bring the Aderant CompuLaw engine to corporate legal departments.”
Deadlines.com’s database is monitored by a team of attorneys and specialists who continually check for rule changes and publish hundreds of updates each year. More than 70 percent of the nation’s largest law firms and 75,000 licensed timekeepers use CompuLaw’s technology today.
Mitratech will be present at LegalTech New York on January 29-31 to showcase available solutions, including TeamConnect Deadlines. Visit the Mitratech team at booth 2127 for more information.
