Strategic legal technology
and services

Serving conference rooms and
court rooms around the world
Opus 2 is the global leader in developing remote-access review tools built for the most sensitive information related to legal matters, including transactions, litigation and investigations. Since the 1980s, our founder and CEO has repeatedly brought step-change technology to conference rooms and court rooms around the world.

Litigation & Arbitration

Opus 2 International is sought for civil and private litigation around the globe. We have helped clients prepare for complex matters that advance to the High Court in the UK and for highly confidential cases that are diverted to alternative dispute resolution.

Opus 2 has been proven among top litigation professionals and agencies. Our team has worked with litigation partners and support professionals from top AmLaw firms in the US and almost every Legal 500 law firm and litigation boutique in the UK. Opus 2 International has worked on important projects from entities such as the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, the World Bank, the US Department of Justice and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Additionally, Opus 2 International has extensive experience assisting global arbitration, mediation and conflict resolution professionals, and we have provided educational content for organizations such as the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the International Dispute Resolution Centre (IDRC), the Professional Negligence Bar Association, the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Council of Advocates and Barristers, and the Bar Council.
Opus 2 has been proven during complex litigation. Opus 2 International services any type of litigation, although most of our cases involve Anti-Trust Litigation, Banking & Finance Litigation, Construction Defect Litigation, Breach of Contract Litigation, Intellectual Property Infringement Litigation, Fraud & Corporate Investigations Litigation and Labor & Employment Litigation. We have delivered high-tech services to Pfizer Securities Litigations, Novartis v Wyeth, Lloyds of London (several cases), Apple v Motorola, several Abbott litigations, and Meda v 3M.
Opus 2 has been proven during US depositions being taken overseas. Our global operations in London, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Paris, Dubai and Hong Kong, paired with our worldwide network of the highest trained service professionals, enables Opus 2 International to deliver the greatest value to every client.

Opus 2 is known for its high level of service as it provides sophisticated litigation services worldwide. For every matter, Opus 2 International leverages the latest litigation support software and technical innovations to deliver exceptional court reporting and litigation services, including:

  • Transcription of formal witness statements and depositions
  • In-court transcription of official testimony for legal proceedings originating in the UK, EMEA, APAC and the Middle East
  • Live, realtime transcripts
  • Hyperlinking exhibits and documents to witness statements and transcripts
  • Collaboration on eDiscovery documents
  • Evidence management and case analysis
  • Digital streaming of live video
  • Synchronization of recorded video to transcripts
  • Electronic deposition binders

Public Inquiries & Investigations

Having worked on some of the largest public inquiries and Royal Commissions, Opus 2 International has acquired invaluable experience with the extreme evidentiary burdens that come with such investigations. As such, the Opus 2 International service model scales to legal matters of any size and complexity without compromising quality, professionalism or responsiveness.

Our team of reporters and support staff have many years' experience in public inquiry work and understand the difference in approach required. We provide preliminary advice and guidance on the types of services most appropriate for the various phases of an inquiry, from evidence management and presentation through to the capture of oral testimony and posting transcripts and evidence for public use on an inquiry web site.
We are sensitive to the needs of inquiry secretariat teams who may not be familiar with managing hearings or the techniques, technology and services needed. Ultimately, the Opus 2 International approach can significantly reduce the direct and indirect costs associated with public inquiries.

Opus 2 staff have worked on such high profile cases as the Hutton Inquiry, the Bloody Sunday Inquiry, the Shipman Inquiry, the Victoria Climbié Inquiry and the Heathrow Terminal 5 Inquiry. In Scotland we have provided court reporting, evidence display and web updating services to the ICL and Fingerprint Inquiries.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Countless companies (including Opus 2) can cite security measures on par with online banking, but few companies have our same background securing the confidential legal documentation from those same financial institutions and corporate giants -- let alone our experience managing the incredibly sensitive evidence from their private arbitrations.

Opus 2's platform officially debuted as the software backbone enabling solicitors, barristers and the judge to manage the evidence from the world's largest private litigation at that time (2011). Today, the platform is used for nearly all major litigation conducted in the UK, Singapore, and across borders.

Having successfully revolutionised the litigation practices within every top law firm in the UK, Opus 2's Forum is poised to bring similar advancements to their M&A practice groups.
