Choosing a transcription service doesn’t need to be difficult. In fact, it is now easier than ever before and when you do your research you will soon find that there are endless options available.

Check the Turnaround Time

When comparing legal transcription services, you have to make sure that you check the turnaround time. The best companies will always make sure that you get results that are fast and accurate. They will also help you to get your data back that same day in some instances too, and this is great if you have a deadline that you need to meet.

Do they Outsource?

Another consideration when choosing a legal transcription service is to find out if they outsource. The best transcriptions come from native English speakers, so it helps to choose a company who guarantee this. When you do, you will be able to hold them to a high standard and you also have the guarantee of knowing that your end result is going to be factually right and error-free.


When working in the legal industry, confidentiality is key. You need to make sure that you find a company who is able to guarantee this because the last thing that you need is to have your data leaked and your case put in jeopardy. When you work with a transcription service who ensures confidentiality, you know that their identities will have been verified and you can also feel assured knowing that they have been through all of the right background checks too.

Check to see if they’re Established

A transcription service provider that has been around for 10 years or more will be far more trustworthy when compared to someone who has been around for a much shorter period of time. Their resilience and their overall years of experience ultimately prove that they are willing to put in the work.

Contacting your Provider

When comparing providers, try and take note of how quickly each one replies. If one is able to offer both phone and email support then this is great, but if another only offers live chat for example then this may not be as efficient.

Ensure Secure Delivery

You really want your transcript to be delivered properly. For this reason, you have to make sure that you choose a company who is able to do it via email or even through a file system. This will give you the chance to download it properly and it will also help you to share any changes that may be required.


And lastly, when comparing legal transcription companies, you need to make sure that the company themselves can be flexible for your deadlines. If they aren’t then you may find it harder to get the result you need from your documents and you may even find that you end up with delays. This is the last thing that you need when you have a legal case on the go, so take your time and make sure that you pay attention to the finer details.

Tech giants Apple and Samsung have agreed to withdraw all patent suits against each other outside the US.

The two rivals have sued each other over a range of patent disputes in nine countries outside the US, including the UK, South Korea, Japan and Germany.

A joint statement said the agreement “does not involve any licensing arrangements”, and they would continue to pursue existing cases in US courts.

Apple and Samsung are the biggest players in the smartphone and tablet PC market.

They have been involved in a bitter legal battle, spread across various countries, which has escalated in recent years.

Apple and Samsung have agreed to withdraw all patent suits against each other outside the US

The legal wrangling between the two companies began in 2011 after Apple sued Samsung in the US.

Apple claimed that Samsung’s Galaxy range of phones and tablets “slavishly” copied its iPhone and iPad.

Samsung has since taken Apple to court in various countries, accusing it of infringing its patents.

These included patents on a way to synchronize photos, music and video files across several devices, and a method to capture and send video over the internet.

For its part, Apple filed counter claims in some of those countries – disputes which the two firms have now agreed to withdraw.

However, the main legal battle between the two companies is being fought in the US courts.

Apple has won two verdicts in the US against Samsung in recent years.

In May, a US court ordered Samsung to pay $119.6 million to Apple for infringing two of its patents. The amount was way less than the $2.2 billion that Apple had sought.

The court also ruled that Apple infringed Samsung’s patents and awarded $158,000 in damages.

However, Samsung denied any wrongdoing and sought $6 million after arguing Apple infringed two of its smartphone patents related to camera use and video transmission.

Two years ago, a separate jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages for infringing intellectual property.

The jury decided several Samsung devices had infringed iPhone-maker Apple’s software and design patents, but rejected counter-claims by Samsung. That verdict is still being challenged by Samsung.

Kanye West has won the legal case against the online currency named after him, Coinye West, after a judge issued a default ruling in the rapper’s favor.

Kanye West, 36, filed suit in New York in January in a bid to stop the exchange of the Coinye West virtual currency amid allegations the product’s creators were trying to trade off his name.

In March, Kanye West filed an amended suit naming the defendants, and last week, he requested a default judgment to end the case after nine of the 12 persons named failed to respond to the accusations.

A judge has since ruled in Kanye West’s favor and the three who did reply to the lawsuit, Richard McCord, David McEnery and Harry Willis, have settled with the rapper, according to Billboard.com. However, Richard McCord also denied his involvement with the creation of the Coinye West.
