ATLANTA – February 27, 2023 – Calloquy, PBC, the first remote litigation platform designed for litigators, is proud to announce the five inaugural members of its Advisory Board. The five individuals, seasoned professionals at the intersection of technology and law join Calloquy’s Advisory Board as the Atlanta-based company delivers its platform and secure court reporting services to leading law firms.
David Carter, Calloquy’s CEO and Founder introduced the new Board members, stating: “We have curated our Advisory Board very deliberately for scope and depth of background, business expertise, and commitment to innovation. They have each founded or been at the vanguard of truly innovative technology, believe in its transformative power, and have shepherded other tech companies from start-up to growth. We know they will provide invaluable insights to Calloquy as we implement our go-to-market strategy.”
“We are thrilled that these five exceptional thought leaders have joined us,” said Carter. “I have known some of them personally for decades and have been continually astounded by their ability to not only get things done but get them done quickly and efficiently and with the same ingenuity the Calloquy team brings to our platform. They add insight and decades of achievement to our extremely dedicated team.”
Advisory Board member Mollie Nichols, while new to the board, has known Carter for decades. She was eager to talk about their history. “I was attracted to Calloquy first and foremost due to its innovative and inspiring leader, David Carter. Knowing David as long as I have as one of his former law professors, I have watched him grow over the past two decades as a lawyer, a leader in social entrepreneurship, and an innovator using technology for the betterment of the way law is practiced in the United States,” she said. “In law school, David began his journey by diving deep into legal technology and how it could enhance the way lawyers use technology to assist their clients while working with the Courtroom 21 Project and by taking my Legal Technology seminar. He was also committed to improving our legal system so that courts are fair and accessible to all, irrespective of wealth and status. It is not surprising to me that David is the visionary to launch a virtual litigation platform to allow people to participate in legal proceedings remotely in a manner that is secure and efficient.”
Calloquy’s new Advisory Board members are:
“I’ve seen first-hand how purpose-built technology impacts litigation strategy, helping clients and their in-house and outside counsel not only win cases, but achieve other key goals,” said Ms. Gregg. “What struck me first about Calloquy’s platform was how it uniquely re-envisioned a part of the litigation process that had remained largely unchanged for decades, without making it unfamiliar and off-putting as is often the case when new technology is introduced into a known process. Calloquy leverages the muscle memory of pre-eminent litigators and mediators, allowing for both intuitive work processes and newfound efficiency. As a bonus, Calloquy can also be a valuable training and retention tool. By replacing generic video platforms with Calloquy’s platform, firms can more closely recreate the in-person experience for remote workers.”
Other Advisory Board members echoed this. Ms. Nichols opined, “Having experienced trial, mediations, and arbitrations remotely during the pandemic with the limited functionality the tools had that were better for a remote meeting than questioning a witness or going to a breakout room during a mediation, it is exciting to rely on Calloquy for a more in person-like experience.” Ms. Morris said, “I was excited to join the Advisory Board because Calloquy is a novel startup being the first virtual meeting platform actually built for litigation. It allows litigators to seamlessly integrate the court reporting services needed for depositions and other legal proceedings. As one fully entrenched in the legal tech arena, I know something special when I see it.”
Brie Buchanan, Vice President & Chief Legal Officer for Calloquy, commented "[t]he fact that these five accomplished individuals are teaming up to help guide Calloquy’s continued growth is a testament to our shared commitment to create positive change in the legal system and to the clear need for continued innovation in the legal sector.”
