We are confident that Compose can help by enabling them to efficiently address a high volume of products liability cases, while at the same time ensuring they never miss an argument in a high-stakes case.”

“I am excited that Compose is now ready to start delivering dynamic templates for Products Liability for state and Federal courts for motions that are constantly needed. Compose’s technology is game changing and an innovation that will be helpful to our firm and our clients,” said Vince Galvin, Executive Managing Partner at Bowman and Brooke.
