Opus 2 Magnum to Launch Share Initiative at LegalTech New York 2015

Donations to Four Leading Charities Including One Laptop Per Child and Rainforest Trust Highlight Themes of Using Opus 2 Magnum: Working Remotely, Sharing Knowledge, Developing Global Communities and Working Sustainably

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2015) - Opus 2 International, the leading provider of collaborative workspaces for litigation, announced today will launch its "Opus 2 Shares" initiative at LegalTech New York 2015 and donate its conference swag budget to one of four short-listed charities. The Opus 2 Shares program engages LegalTech booth visitors in the selection of the beneficiary of Opus's donation, and the program draws attention to the impact of sharing in the context of team collaboration during litigation -- which is the domain of the company's flagship service, Opus 2 Magnum™. As part of the Opus 2 Shares program, booth visitors will be invited to participate in a one-minute survey that will illuminate trends in how litigators collaborate on work product. The subsequent "Opus 2 Shares Trend Report" summarizing the collective survey responses and their potential implications for the practice of litigation will be distributed after the conference.

"Legal professionals are often geographically dispersed and can benefit tremendously from a secure online forum that facilitates the efficient sharing of key documents, notes and insights with team members," said Graham Smith-Bernal, Founder and CEO of Opus 2. "This program encapsulates two main pillars of Opus 2 -- positively impacting our clients and contributing to our global communities -- into one coordinated endeavour."

The final survey question includes four short-listed charities that share key attributes with the Opus 2 Magnum service, specifically: "working remotely," "sharing knowledge," "developing global communities" and "working sustainably." Survey participants may vote for either One Laptop Per Child, Kahn Academy, AIESEC International or Rainforest Trust. Every completed survey adds another $10 to the swag budget to be donated to the selected charity. "Opus 2 clients share our interest in philanthropy and so we believe they will enjoy this opportunity to steer our charitable giving in lieu of taking home another tradeshow pen."

The share initiative is part of a series of activities planned by Opus 2 for LegalTech New York. The company will also preview updates to its current Opus 2 Magnum platform as part of its Version 5 Beta Program, which will feature significant enhancements to various aspects of document, exhibit and transcript functionality. In addition, Opus 2 announced an integration with iCONECT-XERA®, which makes Opus 2 Magnum transcripts available from within the iCONECT-XERA document review platform via a single sign-on. Opus 2 will be exhibiting at LegalTech at booth 1315, and visitors can also learn more about the integration from iCONECT at booth 2503.

Opus 2 will publish periodic updates of survey results to its website and Twitter feed (@opus2magnum) during the conference. To meet with an Opus 2 consultant, please send an email to info@opus2.com or visit www.opus2.com.
