The litigation management platform Allegory today announced a new suite of features designed to enable litigation teams to better manage transcripts and leverage deposition testimony.

Allegory users can now navigate synced deposition video, customize and export designations, review testimony inline, and automatically link transcripts and exhibits across the case simply by dropping in court reporter files, according to today’s announcement.

“Transcript management is a hot topic among litigation teams and practice management groups of late and this new functionality not only replaces, but drastically improves upon, legacy server-based tools like LiveNote and TextMap,” Alma Asay, Allegory’s founder and CEO, told me in an email. “We worked with many top-tier law firms to solicit feedback and user stories in order to build out these new features, and the whole team is excited to show them off.”

I have not seen Allegory’s new transcript tools, but I hope to catch up with Asay at next week’s ILTA conference for a demonstration.

Allegory’s announcement includes a quote from someone who has previewed the new features, Janelle Belling, managing director of the E-Discovery Services & Strategy practice at Perkins Coie. “These are the transcript tools our teams need to keep up with the increasing scope of litigation and to effectively work as a team to make the most of key testimony across the case,” she is quoted as saying.

Allegory is a collaborative litigation-management platform for managing all a firm’s cases and all related evidence, filings, transcripts, witnesses and notes. Asay, the company founder, was formerly a litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.
