THESIS

Cloud Court is a LegalTech company formed by litigation professionals. Our singular mission is to leverage technology to help litigation teams win cases. More specifically, we help our clients win difficult cases they could lose, and "jump ball" cases that could go either way. We also help our clients win the cases they should win, only earlier and on better terms.  

 

Our primary focus is on testimony, with a strong initial emphasis on deposition testimony.  

 

Documents and facts shape a case. No question. But at the end of the day, it's the human testimony interpreting and providing context to those documents and facts that really makes or breaks a case. The party that can tell the most compelling story by leveraging their case's assets and minimizing their liabilities is going to win.  

 

So, why focus on deposition testimony? Why not trial testimony? Trials are cool. They make whole movies about trials. No one makes movies about depositions.  

 

Ok. That's true. But it's also true that it's unlikely that any witness (yours or your opponents') is ever going to testify at trial. The vast majority of cases are settled or dropped before trial. And so, as a practical matter, that means you're going to get one shot at taking down your opponent's witnesses. Just one. And you're only getting one shot at defending your own. In important cases, you need to prepare for your key depositions with the same care that you prepare for trial. You want to win before trial.  

 

Skillfully taken and skillfully defended depositions win cases and drive early and favorable resolutions. That's a brute fact. Poorly taken and poorly defended depositions embolden adverse parties, prolong litigation and lose cases. That's also a brute fact. It's also why depositions are the focus of the technologies developed by our team. We call our first tool Armatus.™ We'd welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how Armatus can make a meaningful difference in your cases.
