Reynen Court launches single platform for legal technology in an initiative supported by large international law firms
Five Beta Firms Going Live After Twelve Months of Development
Reynen Court LLC has announced the Beta launch of its software platform designed to help law firms and legal departments speed adoption of AI and other new and existing technologies.
The platform combines a solution store for legal technology along with a powerful control panel that makes it easy for law firms and legal departments to run applications either on-premises or within virtual private clouds. The platform also enables firms to manage software subscriptions with enhanced interoperability between applications and provides usage monitoring and advanced application-specific metrics to aid in better predictability of IT software and infrastructure maintenance and expenditure.
Reynen Court was established last year with broad support from a consortium of nineteen leading global law firms. Guided by the consortium firms, four product managers and fourteen engineers have now designed and built the platform while more than ninety third-party application vendors have agreed to make their solutions available through the platform. A team of domain and security experts has reviewed and tested vendors and applications and curated content for the solution store.
“Following an intensive year of development, our platform is now ready for active deployment,” commented Andrew Klein, Founder & CEO of Reynen Court and serial Internet entrepreneur. “First to support us during our Beta launch are five of the world’s leading law firms: Latham & Watkins and Clifford Chance, co-chairs of the consortium and investors in Reynen Court; Paul Weiss, vice chair of the consortium; White & Case; and Orrick. We value their collective experience, resources, dynamism and strong leadership.”
Ken Heaps, Chief Information Officer at Latham & Watkins, said: “This is a significant achievement and exciting milestone for Reynen Court. It’s been terrific to see interest and momentum build around Reynen Court and its vision to accelerate the safe, easy and efficient adoption of a wide range of innovative legaltech. The company is firmly on track to deliver on its roadmap.”
“Reynen Court is going from strength to strength and its Beta launch, ahead of schedule, shows the rapid progress being made,” added Paul Greenwood, Chief Information Officer at Clifford Chance. “Development of the platform and the delivery of first-class functionality required strong collaboration across the consortium’s various technical teams, producing a pioneering product that truly highlights Reynen Court’s collective insight and ingenuity and which promises to deliver huge benefits to everyone engaged in the legal tech market.”
“The Beta release represents a first delivery on Reynen Court’s bold vision,” commented White & Case Chief Information Officer Tony Cordeiro. “We have worked closely with their team for many months and are about to start using the curated content to reduce the time it takes for us to bring a new technology online – a key IT strategy for us. Our rapid adoption of stable, secure and functionally rich applications will enable our lawyers to deliver better comprehensive service to our clients. This relentless focus on our client underpins all we do and we believe Reynen Court is one of those key partners to help us realize that.”
“We’re focused on delivering greater quality, faster and with less cost,” added Wendy Butler Curtis, Chief Innovation Officer at Orrick. “Technology is transforming every aspect of legal service delivery, and we’re excited to serve as launch partners for this transformational platform that will make it easier for clients and law firms to collaborate in using the exciting technologies on the market and under development today.”
“Reynen Court and its consortium firms are leading the way to a profoundly productive advance in our profession’s use of technology,” said Michael Mills, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Neota Logic, one of the first containerized apps being deployed through the Reynen Court platform. “The Reynen Court shared platform will encourage discovery, strengthen security, simplify deployment, reduce costs and expand opportunities for both consumers and creators. Neota Logic is very pleased to be collaborating with Reynen Court and our customers in this pivotal project.”
In support of its Beta launches the company has also launched a new website (www.reynencourt.com) from which platform demos may be scheduled.
As soon as the Beta launches are satisfactorily executed, Reynen Court plans to launch trials or full deployments later this year with additional firms including the fourteen additional members of its consortium as well as with corporate legal departments.
