The now ongoing client hired Bunseki for its expert witnesses in a financial software case. Another company was taking information they learned from the original company and using it as their own, Greenman explained.
"This particular company wanted to understand how things were infringed upon in much detail so we came to an agreement with them for writing tools, which is the software that we write," Greenman said. "We review the documents in a legal case and do a comparative analysis. That comparative analysis is used to dig up irrefutable evidence whether a party infringed upon another party's rights."
Bunseki's five clients are still involved in settlement negotiations or are at trial so Greenman could not provide any examples of who has used the software and what their specific situations have been.
Greenman did say that the company has been able to give lawyers the information it discovered "much sooner in the process and it has helped them to go and build up their cases quicker."
Because the software is automated, they can start comparing codes of the plaintiff and defendant's documents earlier in the court cases. The legal team has more time and the scheduling of depositions is useful for lawyers to have the information up front.
These types of cases can take years, Greenman said, and utilizing just an expert witness doesn't speed up the process.
Lawyers and clients can use the results the software generates to solve their copyright infringement cases, among many other lawsuits. Some other cases it analyzes are software licenses, trade secret and patent rights.
Bunseki's technologists -- who are contracted through the affiliated company CreateTank -- can create customized software to meet a client's need too, Greenman said.
"Maybe it's video that has information in it and they want us to get the words that people are saying out," Greenman said. "That would be a case we would have to customize to pull the words out of the video. We would engage with them to customize our tools to meet their need."
Bunseki's only competition right now is the old process, the old way, Greenman said.
He is confident the Marion County company's software is the new approach for solving cases quicker. It's just letting clients know it's available, he said.
"I'm proud of the software we put together at this point. The fact that we have expert witnesses and the software tools to provide them with makes us a strong entity for our client," Greenman said. "Our competition is getting the legal community to understand that our services exist so that they can be better at what they do by using our services."
