Livenote Launches New West Case Notebook Software


ILTA attendees will get a first look at the new case management and analysis tool

EAGAN, Minn., Aug. 2008 – Litigators are constantly juggling, whether it’s discovery documents, pleadings, research, deposition testimony or other facts. With so many documents revolving around any given case, there’s a lot to manage. Now, with West Case Notebook from LiveNote, litigators can manage all of their important documents in one convenient place.

Built on the LiveNote platform, Case Notebook easily integrates with Westlaw. Any research done on Westlaw can be moved into a case file within Case Notebook, where users can annotate, search and report on the research and factual documents.

One of the most critical elements to a lawyer’s success is sharp analysis, and every case must be analyzed in terms of strategic approach, main issues and risks. Case Notebook helps attorneys keep all case-related documents in one place while they perform all the necessary parts of litigation:

* Investigating the facts. Input information into Case Notebook as Key Facts and Characters, making it easier to recall important details in a centralized location accessible to all team members.
* Obtaining documents. Input relevant documents, transcripts and pleadings into Case Notebook and retain notes and issues related to the documents on an ongoing basis.
* Identifying witnesses. Gather and compile the cast of characters to help estimate the number and cost of depositions. Tie characters with their contact information to specific facts or evidence in the case.
* Conducting discovery. Utilize the facts and documents in the case to frame discovery requests, prepare deposition outlines, and easily identify prior deposition testimony on related issues and events.
* Preparing legal arguments. Case Notebook integration with Westlaw research helps attorneys efficiently organize all facts and law in one place to help frame legal arguments in pleadings, motions and other court documents based on authority favorable to the facts of the case.

“Case Notebook lets attorneys have all the information they need in one place,” said Steve Priem, vice president of Litigation for West, part of Thomson Reuters. “It helps round out your research and manage essential tasks while feeling confident that you haven’t missed anything in your analysis.”

Case Notebook will be featured at the International Legal Technology Association annual educational meeting Aug. 25-28 in Dallas, Texas. For more information, visit Also, watch a preview of Case Notebook given by Craig Larson at
