Protecting our Clients Data

Passport® is a patented Enterprise Legal Management technology platform that enables enterprise organizations to unite all of their systems that manage legal, risk, and compliance activities on a single, secure, and collaborative framework. Using Passport, companies:

  • Simplify the way staff work and improve collaboration across internal teams and with external service providers
  • Use data from across systems and departments to mitigate risk and more strategically manage legal matters, insurance claims, compliance, and their associated costs
  • Rapidly evolve their technology to support new or unique business needs
  • Drive down the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their legal, GRC, and claims systems

Passport solutions are available for on-premise or dedicated hosted deployment, which offers each client the flexibility to select the option that best suits its company’s IT preferences and/or data security requirements.

The Passport ELM Ecosystem

The Passport ecosystem includes:

Passport Applications

Passport Applications:

 We offer Passport applications for:

All of these applications share the Passport platform as their foundation, which means that they can be used individually, or seamlessly combined to deliver a unified solution for the management of legal, risk, and compliance activities across the enterprise.

Client-Built and Partner-Developed Passport Applications:

Passport Toolkits provide clients or third-party application developers with the ability to build new applications or modules that leverage the power of Passport and work seamlessly with our applications.


Passport Technology

Core Components:

Passport includes core components, such as a database, workflow and rules engines, security, search, and more. These common and reusable components are leveraged by all applications built on the Passport platform. This ensures that applications share data and work together seamlessly to maximize visibility and streamline processes across the enterprise.


Passport Toolkits provide powerful capabilities to administer, configure, and extend Passport solutions. Using these toolkits, our clients and partners have the ability to tailor Passport to meet precise client requirements or to build new solutions to support emerging business needs.

Data Warehouse:

The Passport Data Warehouse works together with the platform to deliver reporting and business intelligence that consolidate data from across systems and departments for maximum visibility into matters, risk, compliance, and cost.

Collaboration Portal:

The Passport Collaboration Portal enables organizations to securely and efficiently collaborate with outside counsel and other external service providers.

Integrated Applications

The platform’s open integration capabilities enable Passport to deeply integrate with a client’s technology assets that are already in place, which ensures a seamless flow of data and processes between Passport and these systems. In addition, we offer the Passport Connector Library, a collection of pre-packaged integrations between Passport and complementary solutions, such as legal holds, service of process, and email systems, regulatory content providers, and others. By integrating Passport with our Technology Partners’ solutions, we ensure that each Passport implementation delivers the precise combination of best-in-class technologies to meet client needs and maximize value.
