About

We satisfy the Courts’ increasing insistence on the use of technology to present trial bundles by providing an integrated electronic bundling solution to help legal professionals efficiently produce and present high quality, electronic document bundles.

The Problem

The rapidly increasing necessity to present evidence electronically has become evident; yet existing electronic bundle software remain limited in functionality and unable to fulfil the requirements of an ideal bundle assembly and presentation solution. A system, which can satisfy those needs, simplify the process and increase efficiency, would be highly beneficial to legal professionals and alike.

The Solution

XBundle is designed and developed by legal professionals with an insight as to what the market is currently lacking and desperately craves.

XBundle is the only software package which combines easy, drag and drop electronic document bundle assembly, document previews in XBundle::Assemble, apply-once dynamic cross-references which automatically hyperlink in XBundle::View, and full page side-by-side document presentation.

Background

XBundle was created by Robert Onslow – an IP/IT barrister at 8 New Square Chambers – for his own use, as he became increasingly frustrated with the growing size of paper bundles he was having to cart around and deal with in his practice at the Bar, on a daily basis.

The ethos behind XBundle was oft repeated by Robert as “if it is not as good as paper, then you are right to reject it.”

Robert sadly passed away at the end of 2016. We are now continuing his wish that XBundle be developed for the commercial market, and are humbled to be able to honour his legacy.

The Derivation of the Name ‘XBundle’

“Before a new document is introduced into bundles which have already been delivered to the court – indeed before it is copied – steps should be taken to ensure that it carries an appropriate bundle/page number, so that it can be added to the court documents. It should not be stapled, and it should be prepared with punch holes for immediate inclusion in the binders in use.

“If it is expected that a large number of miscellaneous new documents will from time to time be introduced, there should be a special tabbed empty loose-leaf file for that purpose. It is conventional to label this file “X”. An index should be produced for this file, updated as necessary.”
