The New Certainty

At one time, brilliant legal minds were enough. Times have changed.

Litigation has become too large, complex and expensive for brilliant legal minds alone.

What we do:

We find, document and deliver the story in litigation, investigations, compliance audits, and other large or complex legal matters by examining, organizing and analyzing our clients’ case-related materials – more efficiently, more accurately and less expensively than is possible using traditional legal processes.

We apply structured process control, quantitative analytics, advanced technologies and professional management to transform mountains of electronically stored information into work product that our clients and their law firms can use with confidence to pursue their legal strategy.

In today’s legal world, Novus Pro is The New Certainty.


Our lawyers use a unique and highly-engineered process to expedite our clients’ access to critically important information faster than ever before, so they can make better decisions faster and resolve more matters sooner. Our work product includes a summary of the facts in the form of a succinct narrative, witness and key issue files, a key document library, privilege log, chronology of events, depositions and trial abstracts, and any other information that our clients and their law firms may need to pursue their legal strategy.

The Novus Process™ uses Lean Manufacturing principles so our clients and their law firms find out what happened orders of magnitude sooner than with traditional legal processes. This not only increases the probability of an earlier resolution, it increases the probability of a better resolution, long before considerable time and money are spent.
