How It Works
Signature Block Analysis
The Attorney Data Engine extracts attorney data directly from the signature blocks on millions of documents to identify the attorneys associated with each case, as well as the roles they played.
Pro Hac Vice
Lex Machina identifies and adds pro hac vice attorneys, whose names would otherwise be missing on their cases.
Lex Machina’s platform stores daily snapshots of docket data, including the firm an attorney worked at while associated with a case at that particular time. That’s how Attorney Data Engine ensures cases are correctly attributed to the law firm and attorneys that worked on it, regardless of later lateral moves.
Normalizing Counsel Data
Misspelled names and organizational changes can make it hard to even know what to look for when analyzing counsel. Our normalization technology identifies these issues and makes sure that your analytics includes all relevant information.
