Casepoint Contracted to Serve US Federal Defender Services Program; Hires Vice President of Public Sector
Tysons, VA – September 28, 2017
Casepoint is pleased to announce the award of a multi-year contract to serve the Defender Services program in the United States. This multi-million dollar contract, administered through the Defender Services Office of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, will allow federal defender offices and private attorneys who accept Criminal Justice Act (CJA) appointments to use Casepoint in select federal criminal cases. This contract will provide critical assistance to these attorneys who are facing increasing volumes of e-discovery in federal cases, and who have a pressing need for a robust, cloud-based full-service platform which Casepoint intends to serve. Since nearly 90 percent of all defendants in federal criminal cases in the U.S. have court-appointed counsel (either an attorney from the local federal public or community defender office, or a private attorney who accepts CJA appointments), it’s vital for the integrity of the U.S. judicial system that counsel for indigent defendants have tools like Casepoint to assist them in adapting to the digital era.
Complementary to this development, we also announce the hiring of Amy Hilbert as Casepoint’s Vice President of Public Sector. Amy takes the helm to support and further expand public sector relationships. Amy is seasoned in building and managing relationships across the federal, state, and local government markets. She has executed and expanded high revenue sales lifecycles with strategic clients.
“Casepoint’s robust capabilities and intuitive interface is a natural choice for the Defender Services program. With Amy Hilbert’s leadership, we look forward to further expanding our public sector client base. Amy and I have worked together in the past and she brings the know-how, drive, and determination to build out this portion of our business not only in the US, but globally as well,” said Haresh Bhungalia, Casepoint’s Chief Executive Officer. “There is strong demand for high-quality eDiscovery technology and services in this market segment. With Amy’s leadership and the right team we can capitalize on this opportunity.”
Casepoint is a technology company focused on the digital transformation of litigation discovery. Casepoint’s cloud-based eDiscovery platform removes significant barriers from the discovery process, enabling legal teams to focus on the art of litigation. Features of Casepoint include a full-strength review platform with artificial intelligence pre-installed, cloud analytics and collections, and robust data processing capabilities all in a single technology platform.
