Our leadership team has a vision to provide unprecedented levels of access to the court record.

The best solutions haven’t been invented yet. At For the Record, our leadership team is driven by curiosity, relentless innovation and a genuine commitment to deliver solutions that allow courts and court users to work smarter. Our team is made up of experienced industry leaders with a shared passion for customer service and continuously developing new and better ways of working.

Since entering the industry in 2004, co-founders Peter Wyatt and Tony Douglass have transformed how courts capture, access, distribute and publish the court record.

The duo harnessed digital technology to increase the speed of delivery and quality of the court record, and realized huge efficiencies by removing geography as a resourcing constraint. They developed software that moves digital recordings from the courtroom to the court reporter in near real-time (just five seconds behind the spoken word), and in 2005, they implemented the world’s first national digital court recording network in Australia. Decentralization became a reality.

With their team of 700 team members globally, they continue their quest to pioneer new ways to do more with digital.
