CT, a Wolters Kluwer business, has formed a strategic partnership with One Legal LLC
Partnership Will Combine CT’s National Service Network with One Legal’s Best-in-Class Technology to Facilitate Automated Court Filing on National Scale
Lawyers are more challenged than ever before to meet tight court filing deadlines. And, because of varying local rules, filing remains a challenge when attempting to ensure that a deadline has been met. This can pose serious problems for law firms whether filing locally or in another part of the country. To answer this need, CT, a Wolters Kluwer business, has formed a strategic partnership with One Legal LLC, California’s leading electronic court filing company, to create the first nationwide court filing and document retrieval service.
By combining CT’s national service presence and infrastructure with One Legal’s best-in-class technology, One Legal will be the first and only company to offer nationwide court filing and document retrieval services.
“CT and One Legal share similar values and possess an intense focus on customer service. By joining forces, we will make it faster and easier for clients to file and retrieve court documents,” said Gene Landoe, president & CEO of CT. “This partnership is an additional step in fulfilling CT’s vision to provide seamless electronic services to legal professionals.”
One Legal’s technology provides attorneys with more time to prepare documents for filing, while ensuring compliance with local filing rules and reducing the risk of rejected filings. In addition, attorneys will be able to file papers in multiple cities or states on the same day, minimize administrative work and receive immediate, electronic confirmation of filing status.
“One Legal’s goal is to take the guesswork out of court filing and retrieval so attorneys can focus on practicing law—not managing logistics,” said, Bob Battaglia, CEO of One Legal. “By partnering with CT, a leader in the legal software and services industry, we now have access to the resources we need to expand nationally.”
One Legal currently provides same-day filing and document retrieval services in Calif. and Texas. CT and One Legal plan to launch these services nationally in 2008.
