NextGen Reporting and Pro Bono Net Sponsor New Pro Bono Initiative

Cost Saving Technology to Assist with Pro Bono Cases

 

New York, New York (December 6, 2013) - Pro Bono Net, a national nonprofit organization working to increase access to justice, and NextGen Reporting, a leading court reporting provider, recently announced a significant initiative to help law firms and corporations as part of Pro Bono Net's Corporate Sponsorship program.

To support efforts to bridge the justice gap, NextGen Reporting has agreed to provide court reporting services at a 50% discount to Pro Bono Net member law firms, up to $500,000 per firm per year. In total, NextGen Reporting has set aside $10M in total discounted services.

"As an attorney-owned firm, NextGen Reporting understands the expense of representing clients on a pro bono basis," said NextGen's CEO, David Noteware. "NextGen Reporting is proud to support law firms in their pro bono initiatives while partnering with Pro Bono Net." Additionally, Pro Bono Net's Director of Product Management, Adam Licht stated that. "our partnership with NextGen Reporting will help law firms and their legal aid partners save money in this area. These savings could be reallocated to other areas of pro bono service."

"NextGen Reporting has been a helpful partner in our pro bono cases," said Rene Kathawala, Pro Bono Counsel at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. "Their ability to handle remote depositions has provided a unique benefit to Orrick."

Pro Bono Net has more than 80,000 lawyers as part of its national network.

In addition to offering a full suite of traditional court reporting services, NextGen Reporting is the leading provider of remote depositions. Using its unique technical capabilities, NextGen Reporting has helped clients save several million dollars in reduced unnecessary travel and tens of thousands of hours of wasted "windshield time". Attorneys have used NextGen Reporting's remote deposition service offering to connect to far-flung deponents or just conduct local depositions without the hassle of leaving their office.
