Benchly, a leading provider of brief automation technology for attorneys, announces that it has partnered with Reynen Court to introduce a Microsoft Word Add-In tool that allows law firms and their attorneys to save time, reduce costs, and alleviate the aggravation associated with the tedious task of
creating and/or reviewing briefs.
“Benchly’s ezBriefs is an extremely powerful and valuable tool for anyone who drafts court documents. The Word plug-in makes it super easy to use because it allows you to handle cite checking right from within your Word document. ezBriefs also automatically generates, formats and updates your table of authorities, which can save many tears and many hours of frustration,” said Rhonda Jenkins, Chief
Transformation Officer at Reynen Court. “We are very excited that Benchly has joined the Reynen Court vendor ecosystem. The Solution Store was developed to enable our platform users to more quickly discover, source, and test innovative legal technology solutions such as ezBriefs.”
By utilizing a complete case law database, industry-leading Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and additional proprietary software, ezBriefs takes a multitude of mundane tasks that usually take hours and reduces them to an easy, effortless process that requires only minutes to complete. Once a brief is written, the creator can check cited authority for errors, build a Table of Authorities (TOA), and make changes and edits with ease. When receiving a brief from opposing counsel, you can start your review faster with ezBriefs. ezBriefs will automatically find and link cited case authority and allows the user to review the brief and cited case authority in a side-by-side panel, batch print all or selected cases, or save the cited cases to PDF.
“Working with the Reynen Court team to create a Solution Store Listing that will make their platform users aware of an innovative litigation-oriented application like ezBriefs has been enlightening,” said Zane Russell, Benchly’s CEO. “We believed our offerings were good prior to talking with the Reynen Court team, but their consultative approach started us down a path of converting our SaaS offering to a Microsoft Word Add-In that would address a much broader segment of law firms. There are other litigation tools in the market, but if one takes the time to do a comparison, they will quickly conclude that ezBriefs offers the best value proposition.”
Recently, Dr. Gavin Clarkson, a retired law and computer science professor and pioneer in AI-based legal technology, conducted a competitive analysis of TOA tools in the marketplace. In his review, he declared ezBriefs to be “the new authority in tables of authority,” as it significantly outperformed all the established products at a fraction of the cost.
“The Reynen Court Platform offers tremendous value to its platform users and we are excited to be added as a partner in their vendor ecosystem”, said Mark Van Eman, the Benchly COO. “We believe it was impossible to find a better venue to introduce our new technology that helps litigators work more efficiently to generate and review case briefs. Whether you are generating your own brief or reviewing an opposing counsel’s public filling, ezBriefs provides an end-to-end solution.”
