LegalMation®, developer of a revolutionary A.I. platform that innovates litigation work product,announced today that it is launching a new module on its platform that generates discovery response shells in seconds. The SMARTOBJECT™ feature analyzes written discovery requests and auto-suggests basic but targeted objections to each request. “Our goal is to provide tools that allow any legal team to be more efficient and focused on the critical parts of litigation,” said Thomas Suh, president of LegalMation. “We believe that busy work is best left to machines so that lawyers can focus on what they’re meant to do–providing strategic advice and thoughtful analysis. SMARTOBJECT™ is another example of how automation can help enhance and maximize both work product and time.”LegalMation’s Discovery Analysis module uses A.I.functionality and keywords to perform clerical tasks, including converting and formatting documents, in response to discovery requests. Available in BETA mode starting today, it will be offered FREE of charge to any attorney or para-professional affiliated with a law firm or corporate legal department.“We recently performed a test case whereby alitigation boutique used this module after an AmLaw 100 firm served 80+ sets of discovery, totaling more than 1,500individual requests,” said James Lee, CEO of LegalMation. “SMARTOBJECT™broke down the information and provided formatted discovery responses with suggested objections –approximately 40 hours of paralegal/attorney work time –in eight minutes.It was astonishing to watch.” LegalMation was formed by ex-Big-Law-turned-litigation-boutique litigators who spun off to create their own company.Its initial product, which analyzes legal complaints and produces draft versions of answers and initial sets of written discovery,is currently being used by Walmart and labor and employment law firm Ogletree Deakins, among many others. “Our products leverage technology to provide quantifiable benefits ranging from leveling the playing field for smaller departments going up against big firms to helping individual departments of a corporation or firm manage huge workloads,” said Lee.“We are passionate about the benefits of technology for the legal industry and will continue to innovate and advance these efforts.”
