The legal systems in the UK and many other developed countries has been hammered by Covid19 and the avalanche of various claims that built up over the last decade or so. Public sector bodies – and some individuals – are perhaps facing more actions now in the wake of the vaccine roll-out than at any time in history, once/if the whole truth emerges. Add on insurance related claims for PI, car accident, reputational, home or property and you have a recipe for delays. The solution could well be Alternative Dispute Resolution, formalised via legislation in future. For now, here’s some news from TrialView;
TrialView has been cited as “revolutionising litigation” after winning Best Technology Product category at the Lawyer Awards in London. The prestigious awards saw TrialView being labelled as the complete solution for all forms of dispute resolution, providing electronic bundling, a digital workspace, electronic evidence presentation and video integration within one interconnected platform.

With a shift towards remote and hybrid hearings post-March 2020, TrialView has continued to expand its offering, both in terms of functionality and geography, with an emphasis on ease of use. Ultimately designed to be self-serve, the platform aims to foster lawyer autonomy with a focus on pricing transparency. TrialView’s founder and CEO, Stephen Dowling, highlighted that, “the platform is designed for a complete spectrum of users, from paralegals to counsel, from lawyers through to the judiciary.” Thanks to updated Court Guidance in the UK, electronic ways of working within the disputes world are not only the norm, but in many cases, mandated; online dispute resolution is therefore no longer a desirable, but a necessity. Commenting on the recent win,TrialView’s CTO, Frank Brooks said, “TrialView has been built from the ground up for scale and security.
