We are pleased to announce that LawFlow now supports preparation of common bundles as outlined by High Court Rule 9.4 and Practice Note HCPN 2013/1 (Use of Electronic Bundles in the High Court). These functions also enable preparation of other types of lists, in addition to the existing support for Discovery lists in accordance with the 2012 High Court Rules.

With this update, for example, you can create a list, nominate documents to add to the list (either by IDs or by selecting the documents to the tray), automatically sort the documents by date, and automatically generate a bundle of PDFs (separate or compiled into one document) with page numbers and a hyperlinked, editable index.

New features include:

  • The ability to create unlimited custom lists and add selected documents from one or more parties;
  • Page numbering / stamping of all documents in a list;
  • Compiling multiple documents into a single, page-numbered PDF;
  • Splitting  a bundle into two or more volumes;
  • Automatically create a hyperlinked index of documents in a bundle;

This update also includes a number of improvements, including:

  • More options for stamping documents with list numbers and page numbers;
  • More options for native files when exporting PDF bundles;
  • Enhanced export to Excel;
  • Support for Visio and MS Project files (automatically convert to PDF);
  • Performance improvements.

These new and improved features are available immediately for all users on new and existing projects, and at no additional cost. As always, we are grateful for the feedback we have had from our users requesting this functionality, and we are proud to continue the development of an e-discovery system designed for New Zealand requirements.
