Every solution starts with a problem.
Lawyers know that getting any job done right requires focus and attention. It has never been easy—even before the volume of digital information exploded, remote collaboration became the norm, and our inboxes overflowed.
Today, having enough productive time in any given 8-hour day feels like a luxury.
Clay Rankin, a litigator and practicing attorney, decided there had to be a better way—he developed Cognito Legal Software to optimize daily practice and eliminate the barriers to focused work.
Cognito allows you to complete much of your work in one workspace, linking all related information together in context and within view.
At Cognito, we have a mission. Every day we work to ensure that the work you do today provides time-saving benefits for you tomorrow.
Over time, Cognito Legal Software enables litigators to build an expansive knowledge base for reference, significantly reducing the need to recreate work for similar projects. It’s visual, it’s accessible, and it’s in full context.
It's also a new way of thinking about the value of work and the optimization and transfer of knowledge.
Cognito was conceived as legal tech for litigators and created by Clay Rankin, a practicing attorney, and launched in 2021 at the American Bar Association Tech Show. Read Clay’s latest blog post about the core tech challenge facing the legal industry.
