Cloudbrief is a web based filing system developed by a trial lawyer.

It is designed for litigation support but it can also be used by commercial lawyers for their matters and as a cost effective secure virtual filing cabinet.

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 appeared to be useful to sort relevance of documents in large cases but had no apparent value for day to day management of run of the mill cases.  Some contained numerous features that had no clear practical relevance to a lawyer running a case.  A number of packages appeared to be cost prohibitive.

Cloudbrief was created to try to fill an apparent void in legal support software by providing a cost effective web based filing service designed to meet the practical needs of lawyers and their clients 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.

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:

Cloudbrief is the product of more than a decade of development, spanning the phases of planning, design, and testing with real cases, to create a working online filing system for lawyers that is organised, intended to be easy to use, practical, and cost effective.
