Bowman and Brooke has 160 trial lawyers coast-to-coast in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Detroit, San Jose, Los Angeles and Richmond, Va. Together, the firm’s lawyers defend corporations in products liability, toxic torts and other high-stakes litigation throughout all 50 states.

The platform combines the Microsoft SQL Server database engine with the Summation interface with which we are familiar, so we can store, quickly search and review millions of documents per case.
