NextGen Reporting, a provider of deposition services to the legal profession, is pleased to announce the availability of its deposition and arbitration services. Utilizing time-tested technology, NextGen makes deposition video more cost-effective, accessible and flexible than ever before.
David Noteware, CEO and founding partner of NextGen explains the motivation behind the new platform, “The court reporting process has remained essentially the same for decades, while the volume and pace of litigation has increased. Over the past two years of technology development, we built a process that improves the effectiveness of the attorneys while removing inefficiencies and unnecessary costs inherent in the traditional way of conducting depositions and arbitrations. NextGen provides the added value of a web-based video and transcript from the proceeding at no additional cost.”
When NextGen conducts depositions at locations with confirmed Internet access, NextGen sends technicians to the deposition to swear in the witness, scan the exhibits, and manage the audio/video connections at no charge. Using this process, remote attorneys, claims adjustors, and clients can easily participate in the proceedings as they happen. NextGen makes the videos of these depositions available within 24 hours on NextGenReporting.com and stores the video online with the associated transcripts and linked exhibits.
NextGen has launched its novel service offering first in the Philadelphia region because of the community’s rich tradition of advanced legal services. The company plans to expand rapidly to additional underserved markets. Immediate access to deposition videos and transcripts also benefits the client. Mitchell Spector, CEO of Walnut Industries notes, “Because our patent litigation is so critical to our success, we take depositions very seriously. Having immediate access to the proceedings helps us to work with our counsel more effectively and efficiently.”
