Joinder is a first of its kind legal collaboration platform that is transforming the way companies and law firms work together. It combines the four critical pillars to legal work—data storage, task management, communications, and document management—into a single workspace within the customer’s boundary.

Joinder gives unparalleled access and control over that work, helping users leverage precedent, data analytics, and knowledge management to achieve better organization, transparency and efficiency. It enables seamless document sharing and editing, and provides secure workrooms that are designed to promote transparency and collaboration, including a shared calendar that provides on-demand access to deadlines and status updates for all deals and cases on the user’s schedule. Joinder also uses machine learning, trained by hundreds of Orrick professionals, to automate functions like organizing a company’s records and files. Joinder use cases include litigation matters, organization of global compliance, transactions of all kinds, board management, remote depositions, law firm onboarding, risk management, team and project coordination and many others.  Joinder, a US based private company, has been incubated at Orrick, the global law firm and minority Joinder shareholder.   Joinder's platform serves more than 1,000 Orrick clients, together with Joinder's initial subscribers.
