Merlin’s cutting-edge GenAI technology will power U.S. Legal Support’s DepoSummary Pro™ enabling legal professionals to streamline case preparation and strategy.

Denver, CO—Merlin Search Technologies, a pioneering AI and cloud technology software company, today announced a strategic partnership with U.S. Legal Support, the nation’s leading provider of litigation support services. Under this partnership, Merlin will provide its state-of-the-art GenAI technology to power U.S. Legal Support’s new GenAI-generated deposition summary service, DepoSummary Pro.

Merlin’s advanced AI algorithms will enable DepoSummary Pro to quickly analyze lengthy deposition transcripts and generate concise, multi-layered summaries.

By combining our cutting-edge technology with U.S. Legal Support’s extensive reach and exceptional service, we can empower legal professionals nationwide with tools to enhance their productivity and effectiveness.”

Enhancing Deposition Review with Multi-Layered AI Summaries

Merlin’s AI technology will power DepoSummary Pro to generate comprehensive, multi-layered deposition summaries, including:

  1. Testimony Abstract: A high-level overview of the entire deposition, highlighting key topics and answers to major lines of inquiry.
  2. Organization by Key Sections: Intelligent grouping of testimony segments into coherent sections, providing a narrative overview of the deposition.
  3. Explicit Statements & References: Detailed summaries of admissions and testimony at the page-line level, enabling quick access to specific statements.
  4. Transcript Links: Users can jump from the summary to the actual testimony to confirm the summary statement, returning back to the summary with a click.

“Our partnership with U.S. Legal Support underscores the immense potential of AI in transforming legal workflows,” said Dr. William Webber, Merlin’s Chief Scientist. “By leveraging our advanced algorithms and machine learning capabilities, DepoSummary Pro will enable attorneys to extract valuable insights from deposition transcripts more quickly and accurately than ever before.”

Secure, Compliant, and Seamlessly Integrated

DepoSummary Pro, powered by Merlin’s AI technology, will operate within U.S. Legal Support’s robust security framework, ensuring the highest levels of data protection and compliance. The generated summaries will be delivered securely through U.S. Legal Support’s SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA compliant Client Portal, along with the final transcripts.
