Primafact and Filevine have teamed up to provide a complete case management solution for Personal Injury firms. Primafact is the leader in evidentiary document management for litigation, and Filevine is an up and coming cloud-based practice management system specialized for litigation.
Primafact has released version 5, a major upgrade to their popular litigation document management software. Litigators use Primafact to manage and quickly access evidentiary documents when preparing cases.
This new version contains important improvements to annotations with issue coding, allowing teams to view case content by issue.
On the weekend of June 2nd, Neesons hosted a Legal Hackathon that brought together several hundred programmers, software designers, lawyers, and other interested parties. A dozen teams formed on Friday night and the coding began!
Teams were provided with several possible challenges including improving automated transcription, using AI to streamline document review, creating a system to pro-actively monitor file status, and a wildcard – anything they could think of that would improve the legal industry.
Within most matters, there are often smaller issues to manage that require only a subset of the complete document record. Primafact allows you to maintain copies of the same document in multiple locations, which can be useful for managing discrete activities, such as preparing for discovery or assembling motion materials. Creating special purpose binders lets you corral these curated document sets in one convenient location. I’ll show you how to set one up below:
The most notable feature of Primafact, in my view, is unquestionably the most basic – the binder. I love Primafact’s binder view. It’s great to be able to lay out your documents in an order that captures the “flow” of your matter, with items laid out in a progressive sequence rather than being forced into standard “sort” listings (by date, alphabetical name etc.).
