ATLANTA – February 6, 2023 – Calloquy, PBC, the first remote litigation platform designed for litigators, announces the promotion of Mark Baker to Chief Technology Officer. He will have primary responsibility for guiding Calloquy’s software development teams and collaborating with the world’s largest law firms to identify the tools and solutions that will make the next era of litigation more efficient and cost-effective for their clients.
Mark joined Calloquy in August 2022 as Vice-President of Product Development. David Carter, CEO and Founder of Calloquy explained that his elevation to the CTO role reflects his driven determination to ensure that Calloquy is leading the way in innovation. “Mark has demonstrated a unique ability to both envision the future and execute on the here and now. He has ably expanded our software development team and has created a clear road map for continued innovation,” he said. “I have every confidence that Mark is the right person to lead our efforts into the next phase of growth.”
Calloquy’s commitment to improve the legal system by harnessing the power of technology to improve access to justice is a perfect fit for Mark. Prior to Calloquy, Mark was instrumental in building the team and technology for AudioEye®, a publicly traded company resolving issues of accessibility for individuals with disabilities. It is still the public-facing solution for digital accessibility at ADP and the Social Security Administration, among many others. “Nothing – income levels, socioeconomic standing, or one’s ability to see or hear - should be a barrier to effectively participating in the systems which guarantee us equal protection of the law,” Baker said. “I was committed to that tenet at AudioEye® and remain committed to it at Calloquy.”
The promotion of Mark also allows Calloquy’s David Roberts, who has served as CTO since its founding, to focus on critical areas of the business as the Chief Information Officer and Chief Information Security Officer (CIO/CISO). “When we began building the team at Calloquy, we knew that information security was going to be a major consideration in the work that we do each and every day as we prepared ourselves to serve top litigators. As we began offering court reporting services at the beginning of 2023 to customers across the country, this area has only taken on greater significance. The division of these roles reflects our continued commitment to a ‘security-first’ posture as a company.”
Calloquy is an Atlanta-based public benefit company (PBC). The Calloquy platform is the first remote litigation platform designed for how litigators are practicing law today; what they refer to as the Next Era of Litigation. Carter adds, “Legal proceedings no longer take place exclusively in person and it is apparent that they never will again. Calloquy is a more secure, more familiar, more intuitive, more efficient virtual environment than the mass-market videoconference platforms that were hastily deployed during the pandemic. The platform delivers an intuitive videoconferencing interface and evidence management system, but with a level of formality and security befitting the litigation and dispute resolution processes. When coupled with our superior and highly secure remote court reporting services, Calloquy makes life easier for attorneys and eliminates costs, both direct and indirect, associated with litigation.”
Calloquy is the first virtual legal proceedings platform intentionally built for the way litigation is practiced now. Its technology and court reporting services empower attorneys to conduct and manage legal proceedings more effectively and securely, while increasing productivity and reducing costs. The company is helping to shape the Next Era of LitigationTM by combining legal industry-specific videoconferencing technology, world-class security, highly professional court reporting services, and an access-to-justice social mission. Calloquy is a Public Benefit Corporation, and its commercial litigation clients fuel that mission by enabling the company to provide free platform access to legal service organizations and pro bono cases.
