"Professional throughout, the Opus 2 team were prepared for and responded to all of our in court and out of court needs. Opus 2 is an intuitive and straightforward software making it a key tool in proceedings. We could not find anything else which compared to its offering."

Siân Jones Partner, BDB Pitmans LLP

“There were also a number of other features which significantly contributed to the smooth running of the trial. Perhaps most importantly, the extensive documentation was presented in a highly organised and easily accessible electronic format... There can be no doubt that this enabled the trial to be concluded within the allotted timetable, and with the maximum efficiency.”

Lady Justice Gloster referencing Opus 2 in the Berezovsky v Abramovich judgment

“I’m currently engaged in a trial with a bundle of about 200 lever arch files. Opus 2 enables instant access electronically to all the documents in the case. We’ve now reached the closing submissions stage where the system pays big dividends because the written closings can be researched, cut, pasted and finalised from the screen. I suspect that this is how all major litigation will, in the future, be conducted. I would say this is the most important development in trial work I’ve ever experienced in my time at the Bar.”

Lord Grabiner QC, One Essex Court

“Opus 2 is unique in that it covered all our bases in a single tool. We couldn’t find anything else that compared to it.”

Catherine McPherson Litigation Management Consultant, Bartlit-Beck

“I certainly would never like to do another trial without using Opus 2 and Realtime, as I shall be telling anyone here who cares to listen!”

Associate, Hogan Lovells LLP

“A big thanks again for the fantastic service and assistance – not only were the clients impressed but it made our preparation and the trial process so much easier (letting us focus on substantive pieces of work)!”

Khadija Khan Legal Analyst, Stephenson Harwood LLP

“I really can’t envisage using a paper-based trial bundle again! The ability to take my laptop with me and have access to everything is perfect!”

Mr Nicholas Baatz QC, Atkin Chambers

“This was my first time using an electronic trial bundle, and a combination of the intuitive software and great customer service made it a seamless experience. Your team was always very quick to answer any queries or complete uploads (even late at night).”

Grace Burcher Paralegal, Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP

“I think [the Opus 2 platform] increases productivity by about 25%.”
