Experts in Litigation and Legal Technology
Vector was designed and built by several litigation partners to solve the problems posed by their own caseloads and client demands. The Vector team and its Strategic Advisors have worked at, with, and against many of the world’s best law firms and most sophisticated in-house legal departments—and repeatedly watched attorneys and paralegals struggle to successfully manage the overwhelming volume of documents, tasks, and deadlines in their cases. Vector was born out of the intense, industry-wide frustration with the existing litigation management products.
The existing products fail and litigation is disorganized because law firms and attorneys use conflicting and confusing systems to manage and store the documents, deadlines, correspondence, and tasks in a case. Cases often unravel into an unstructured sea of information buried in unspecified file folders on a server or an individual attorney’s computer.
Despite the litigation industry’s size and sophistication, before Vector, there was no standard legal architecture to structure, organize, and analyze the components of a case. As such, while law firms and clients are under enormous pressure to predict and maintain tight control over litigation costs, these goals remain illusory.
Vector solves all of the underlying problems plaguing litigation case management that make lawyers feel overwhelmed and stressed. Vector’s standard litigation organizational structure frees litigators and clients to think creatively about case strategies and see trends across cases. Vector brings order to the chaos, quiets email traffic, and provides a visual litigation flight plan and checklist designed, tested, and verified by top notch litigation partners and law professors. As a result, Vector allows law firms, attorneys, and in-house counsel to save hours of time every week, significantly lower administrative costs, and focus on getting results.
