What is a litigation trial or arbitration? Similar answer applies for litigation hearings and other similar type of legal events.

A trial or arbitration is a formal examination of evidence presented by lawyers on opposing side of a dispute, where said dispute is being heard before a deciding judge (or arbitrator), and at times before a jury (for trial), in order to determine on guilt, culpability and/or liability in a case of a litigation proceeding, whether it is a criminal or civil matter.

Litigation commences at the point when the lawsuit is actually filed and trial is the very end, which would be in front of a judge/jury, or arbitrator.

Evidence is usually now in digital format, and if originating in paper, becomes part of a composite of data/digital evidence that needs to be presented throughout the duration of a trial. The evidence is brought up by the lawyers on each side of the matter for the judge. arbitrator and/or jury to see the story and information about the dispute. Visibility of the evidence on computer screens, projector screens and other paraphernalia (including video screens for those perhaps attending virtually) eventually leads to a decision in favor or against one of the parties.

Orchestrating non prejudicial symmetry with all technology for both parties and the judge/arbitrator and juries is the art of the trial technology consultant

Think of the person running a live musical or theatrical event before a large audience in attendance — live band, dancers, sounds, microphones, video screens, live streaming to television and internet. This ultimately is exactly what the trial technology consultant does for the lawyers and judge/arbitrator in a court room.

The benefit is symmetry and shared costs — in lieu of incompatible technology being brought by each party separately, with no symmetry, and separate elevated costs accrued if the individual parties were to work separately.

A trial technology consultant makes it all efficient and saves time and money too!!
