Alexandria, VA—In recent years, professionally crafted graphics and trial technology have become crucial to the work of lawyers in high-stakes legal battles. On October 15, Resonant Legal Media (RLM), a consulting firm to leading law firms on their trial presentation needs, acquired TrialGraphix and their core services. The combined company is now the nation’s largest and most experienced graphics and technology firm, serving the legal community with over 90 professionals coast-to-coast.

 The post-acquisition footprint of RLM | TrialGraphix includes offices in New York City, Alexandria, San Francisco, and Princeton, as well as new offices in Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles.

“Our expanded teams and locations strengthen our collaborative approach to delivering creative ideas, powerful presentations, and unparalleled service,” says Guy Joubert, founder and managing principal of RLM | TrialGraphix.

The majority of RLM | TrialGraphix customers come from the ranks of the AmLaw 100, American Lawyer‘s list of the nation’s top grossing law firms. RLM | TrialGraphix support over 60 trials a year. In a typical engagement, their professionals work closely with a legal team to develop and deliver persuasive trial presentations—graphics, illustrations, videos, and animations for jurors and for judges.

“I’m between back-to-back trials right now with graphics consulting from RLM on the first and TrialGraphix on the second.  It’s great to know that I now have the option of their combined resources and talent,” said Phil Beck, partner of Chicago-based Bartlit Beck.

The ability to make complex subjects more understandable to jurors is vital as RLM | TrialGraphix Principal Tony Canzanella explains, “Because people are so exposed to quality imagery in their daily lives – through entertainment, computers, and mobile devices – superior presentation capabilities are almost mandatory in today’s courtroom.”

RLM alone has handled over 1,000 litigation matters and prepared more than 150 tutorials for courts nationwide. The firm employs top presentation designers, illustrators, animators and trial technology consultants.

“Both RLM and TrialGraphix have supported our most demanding patent litigation for top clients like Samsung, Google, and many others.  They are experts at communicating complex technology and delivering flawless support in the courtroom,” said Kevin Johnson of Quinn Emanuel.  Silicon Valley based Johnson is a partner with Quinn Emanuel.

“We are very fortunate to team up with the talented design and technology professionals joining us from TrialGraphix,” says Canzanella.

“I have worked with both RLM and TrialGraphix on a number of trials and have had a great experience and great success with both companies. In the field of litigation graphics and technology support these two companies are unparalleled by their competitors and have the expertise and know how to handle even the most complex of cases. RLM and TrialGraphix have been a critical part of our team and our success at some of the most high-profile litigations in the last decade,” said Nick Gravante, a New York partner with Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP.

Joubert says exciting as this news is, his company’s most rewarding moments still come from working side-by-side with client teams in demanding and challenging cases. “We look forward to being with them in the courtroom, war room and wherever their cases take them,” he says.
