Electronic briefs for traditional and virtual offices

Cloudbrief is an Australian Internet based secure flexible and easy to use filing system developed by an Australian trial and appeal lawyer.

It is designed to file, organise and store court documents, evidence, cases, statutes and correspondence for the litigation team including paralegals.

The file structures are flexible and can be modified for each particular case. The file system can be used by commercial lawyers who want a cost effective secure virtual filing cabinet, keeping confidential documents safe.

Access to particular documents can be given to the client, expert or particular witness.

It can be used by lawyers on different sides to share common documents in a litigation case or in a commercial transaction.

For many years the trial lawyer/developer used computers for trials and appeals but was not satisfied with computer based litigation support services and products.  He thought that a product should be developed that better catered for lawyers’ needs.

Some software packages or services are very useful to sort relevance of documents in large cases but have less or no value for day to day management of cases or commercial matters. 

Cloudbrief was created to try to fill a void in legal support software by providing a cost effective web based filing service designed to meet the practical needs of legal teams, paralegals, clients, experts and witnesses in cases large or small.

Cloudbrief is an online filing system that is backed up by a relational database.  Cloudbrief is not a document searching or text retrieval service. However it contains an intelligent search function.

Cloudbrief enables documents to be filed in folders and sub-folders. It lists the contents of each folder or sub-folder. A User can sort or re-sort the list by applying a number of relevant fields that include, for example, Date, Author and document Type.

Cloudbrief has been designed by applying a number of ideas about managing information in litigation that will be familiar to lawyers. These ideas also apply to transactional matters for commercial lawyers:

Add to that another decade of practical operation and refinement.
