Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Global Market Courts, ADGM Courts, has announced the launch of the ADGM Courts ePortal.

The eCourts platform is aimed at revolutionising the delivery of civil and commercial judicial dispute-resolution services and transforms the way courts interact with litigants and the legal profession.

Developed in partnership with Microsoft, the Integrated eCourt Platform provides a comprehensive, digital court record. Users can initiate, manage and monitor their cases 24-7, from anywhere in the world, through the device of their choosing. They can file documents and receive SMS notifications about the progress of their case and changes to the digital court file.

Electronic evidence bundles are included in the court file at no additional cost to any party, and court hearings are conducted through video conferencing, accessed via an integrated calendar.

The eCourt Platform also provides a secure payment gateway for clients and lawyers, with immediate access to invoices and receipts, and instantaneous publication of orders and judgements on cases. The platform’s features deliver a holistic judicial dispute-resolution service, resulting in substantial time and cost savings to litigants and their lawyers.

The platform is an end-to-end solution built on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, incorporating elements of the company’s industry-leading, smart commerce platform, Dynamics 365. This platform eliminates paper, and virtual trials and hearings via video conferencing reduces further costs.
