How Lexel is making waves with litigation management software in India and beyond

Lexel is a key player offering litigation management software in India. Based in Hyderabad, it is a case analysis and trial preparation platform owned and developed by DotC Technologies.

It has been in the market for around 15 years and has been used in various high-stakes cases, public inquiries, and arbitrations.

Overview about Lexel

A common downside to litigation proceedings is that the process generates lots of documents, which makes the already slow process of litigation even slower, and a lot more prone to error. This is not merely an issue regarding costs, but also becomes a detriment to the delivery of and access to justice.

Lexel is designed to streamline the process of litigation. The software resolves these issues by creating a more efficient litigation management experience, which reduces costs and consumption of paper, while improving the productivity of the overall litigation management process.

Another big pain-point in litigation proceedings is the lack of an efficient collaboration method between all the users and participants. Generally, team members use emails, messengers, cloud storage, and a bunch of applications and interfaces which don’t speak well with each other. Lexel resolves this by providing centralization so that multiple users can access, create and edit the documents at one time. This is useful for saving time, avoiding miscommunication, liaising with other users whether in the internal team or with clients and other lawyers.

How Lexel helps litigation teams 

1. Organisation

Users can import and create documents on Lexel. These documents can be organised in cases, files, folders, and bundles. As such, all the case information is compiled in one place and can be edited and accessed by multiple users/parties.

The need for this system of uploading and sharing documents in bulk has become increasingly apparent. While the traditional system of email as a sharing mechanism is convenient, it is rather inefficient as emails are not intended for compact organisation and editing.

The software itself is API-based, which allows it to be integrated with other technology products. This means that documents uploaded onto the Lexel platform can be retrieved from other document repositories, such as Google Drive, and it also supports various document and image formats, including Google Docs.

2. Review

While using Lexel, a user can create, edit, and review documents. The content of documents can be separated with tags, annotated with notes, or linked to another document. Such actions can then be shared with other users, making the review process even easier.

Other features that make collaboration easier include a fact timeline, task assignment list and case calendar. Users can communicate on the platform with video conferencing or split screen options as well. Lexel is also able to produce real-time transcripts, which are useful for proceedings and meetings.

3. Security 

An important concern with legal tech products is the issue of security, particularly because case documents often involve sensitive and confidential information and software is prone to hacking. The risk of having information leaked has to be incredibly small in order to gain the confidence of lawyers and their clients.

The Lexel system is SSL-enabled and runs on the basis of authorised user access. Additional measures to ensure security include role-based permission to be given to each user, different levels of case document security between users and a firm-level security option.

Lexel’s clientele 

Lexel is not jurisdictionally confined, and is used by a range of international organizations, including courts, law firms and public investigators.

Their law firm clientele includes 50+ law firms in Asia, Australia, and Europe, including King & Wood Mallesons, Herbert Smith Freehills and Jones Day. Aside from law firms.

The software has been used in several major foreign investigations and inquiries, used in 80% of the Royal commissions and inquests in Asia, Australia and the UK, including the Leveson Inquiry, Baha Mousa Inquiry and the Hillsborough Disaster Inquest.

Note that Lexel is not made for a specific region in mind, and is equally deployable by Indian lawyers and law firms as their foreign counterparts.

What for Lexel’s litigation management software in India? 

Lexel doesn’t change the litigation process for its clients, it adapts to the current litigation processes. The software provides the tech infrastructure to aid users for better litigation preparation, while the nature of the tasks involved in litigation actually remains the same.

As a result, Lexel is using its product to help customers learn new technological skills, as opposed to new legal skills – something that will set the tone for its future offerings.

In making it easy to incorporate the software into many organisations, Lexel stands as a strong competitor in the litigation management software industry in India and, increasingly, elsewhere.
