Electronic Bundles (eBundles) / Transaction Bibles (eBibles) are electronic set of documents put together with a search engine where you can search for words within the documents. The index has all documents hyperlinked for easy access. We can customise the user interface to match clients own branding.
Electronic Bundles provide a solution for holding significant amounts of electronic data in an accessible, searchable format. Contentious matters such as employment, construction, civil and commercial litigation (including Arbitration) require legal teams and the Judiciary to swiftly distil large amounts of data. This is best achieved with a professionally created eBundle.
eBundles provide end-to-end electronic systems, allowing all parties in a hearing to manage and navigate vast quantities of electronic information,
thereby controlling costs and increasing efficiency.
These can include:
- Medical/accident/police records, witness statements in complex personal injury cases.
- Emails, documents, and other ESI relating to a regulatory investigation.
- Contracts, plans, and expert opinions in construction/engineering, arbitration or litigation matters.
Lineal ensures all eBundles adhere to the guidelines set out in Practice Direction 14 for the UKSC and Practice Direction 9 for the JCPC, providing confidence that the eBundle produced is fully admissible in Court.
Electronic Bibles provide a solution for holding significant amounts of electronic data in an accessible, searchable format. They are regularly employed in non-contentious matters such as M&As, multi-jurisdictional joint ventures, commercial contracts.
eBibles provide end-to-end electronic systems, allowing all parties to a deal or store, search, retrieve, and share vast quantities of electronic information, thereby controlling legal fees and increasing efficiency, both of which are of high importance to corporate clients.
Types of information include:
- Deeds, option agreements, and property search results for conveyancing/development matters.
- Details of property and assets relating to matrimonial property in relation to divorce cases.
- Company financials and forecasts relating to M&A deals.
