Business Situation: One of the firm’s clients, a provider of smartphones for children, was facing a “save-the-company” case related to complex securities called “auction rate securities.” Since the company was experiencing financial stress and had limited available resources to try the case, lead attorney Greg Lawrence was forced to leverage technology and use other creative litigation management strategies to get the job done.

Solution: Lawrence formerly was an Enforcement Attorney for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. From his days at the SEC, Lawrence was familiar with a product from LexisNexis® called CaseMap®, which was the SEC’s preferred system for case management and analysis. Lawrence knew that CaseMap could be a powerful case analysis software platform for his high-stakes case, so he decided to rely heavily on CaseMap and its related TimeMap® module to help him manage the litigation.

Result: 

  • Provided some of the vital technology necessary to help Lawrence try the case and ultimately secure an $80.8 million arbitration award for the client. 
  • Enabled Lawrence to manage the litigation with an estimated 50% less staffing resources than he would have otherwise required, making it possible to try the case with a tight budget. 
  • Allowed Lawrence to see relationships between people, facts and issues in a coherent way, improving his case presentation. 
  • Empowered Lawrence with the necessary visual illustrations of key chronological events in the case, which he incorporated into a persuasive closing argument.
