Everlaw Press Release

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 24, 2022 – Everlaw today unveils Corporate Essentials, an intuitive solution for in-house counsel to be able to control their discovery process for investigations, litigations, and compliance in one central place.

Everlaw announced this news at the ACC 2022 Annual Meeting, the world’s biggest gathering of in-house counsel.

Moving more legal work in-house is the number one strategy to limit litigation costs, according to 59 percent of respondents surveyed in a joint ACC/Everlaw report issued today. When bringing litigation in house, legal teams often struggle with manual workflows to ingest, review and manage a corpus of diverse data. Teams often rely on email (51%) or spreadsheets (35%) to manage legal holds according to the survey.

Legal teams are getting what general counsels have been waiting for: fit-for-purpose software to unlock their team’s productivity, which is now delivered in an enterprise model that CIOs and CFOs prefer.

In response, Everlaw created Corporate Essentials, a package of its leading cloud-based discovery offerings designed to modernize in-house legal work with consumer ease and enterprise scope delivered in a subscription model to fit the annualized billing cycle for corporate budgets.

Everlaw Corporate Essentials helps three critical parts of investigative and litigation work:

  • Ingest corporate data from dozens of sources: Everlaw Cloud Connectors tool helps legal teams upload key data with near-instant connections from core workplace tools, such as O365, Slack, Box, and Google Workspace. To enable users to handle the evolving variety of data types, Everlaw designed a “plug and play” infrastructure to quickly add new connections to enterprise applications as they become needed. An important new data source coming soon is Zoom as more evidence is captured from the explosion of virtual meetings, depositions and trials.
  • Review evidence with award-winning analytics and AI: Once the evidence is added to the platform, Everlaw’s Early Case Assessment platform is a powerful means to uncover meaningful connections across data with smart search and visual concept clustering. It helps customers drastically reduce the amount of data requiring outside review, helping to control cost
  • Manage legal holds in one, secure place: Everlaw Legal Holds enables the defensible management of legal holds workflows with a custom custodian directory, built-in tracking and auto-escalations to replace manually-sent emails and tracking spreadsheets.
  • Collaborate seamlessly across functions and teams: Everlaw Storybuilder helps teams organize key documents and arguments to manage the end-to-end internal investigation and litigation process. Collaborate with HR, Legal and external partners as you need at no additional cost.

“We are seeing digital transformation for in-house counsel play out in two big ways,” said Shana Simmons, chief legal officer, Everlaw. “Legal teams are getting what general counsels have been waiting for: fit-for-purpose software to unlock their team’s productivity, which is now delivered in an enterprise model that CIOs and CFOs prefer.”
