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 and other large or complex legal matters by examining, organizing and analyzing our clients’ case-related materials – more efficiently, 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 Law is The New Certainty.


Novus Law begins by working with our clients’ eDiscovery companies and finishes when they and their law firms resolve their matters. We use the Novus Process™ to prepare work product based on the information we uncover in our clients’ documents and other case-related materials. Our work product includes witness and key issue files, written summaries of key documents, chronologies of events, deposition summaries, motions and briefs, and everything else our clients and their law firms 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 is spent.
