TORONTO, February 3, 2020 — CiteRight Inc., a knowledge management platform for litigators, has been named an Emerging Legal Technology Leader by The National Law Journal. CiteRight is called a change agent for its automated platform, which helps lawyers find, organize, cite, use, and reuse legal research. The National Law Journal is read by more than half of all practicing lawyers in the United States, and attracts over 1.58 million unique visitors to its website each month.
"We’re transforming how lawyers connect and collaborate by automating a series of essential, manual tasks,” said Aaron Wenner, the company’s founder and chief executive officer. “CiteRight makes it easy to save cases from online legal databases so they are available in Microsoft Word, and to cite cases in the right formatting. Circulating the most essential elements of legal research across an entire law firm — and creating key court documents — is no longer a labour intensive chore, but a simple quick mouse click.”
Canada’s top firms, including Lenczner Slaght, Borden Ladner Gervais, and Torys, are CiteRight customers. They consistently report that CiteRight generates productivity by reducing document turnaround times and producing more consistent work product. Most importantly, litigators who use CiteRight produce higher-quality work for their clients, because they can focus on writing persuasive arguments instead of formatting their documents and assembling them into PDFs.
CiteRight is an integrated knowledge automation platform that makes delivering legal research work products faster, more efficient, and more profitable. CiteRight’s Microsoft Word plugin and standalone web and mobile applications aggregate an entire law firm’s institutional knowledge, turning old documents into a network of living, intelligent, reusable work products. CiteRight is part of Ryerson University's Legal Innovation Zone in Toronto.
