  • Innovator’s Award 2015

    It’s taken less than 10 years. Lex Machina has gone from a gleam in the eye of Stanford law professor Mark Lemley to popular academic database to stand-alone company to part of the LexisNexis legal research empire. Even while blazing the trail, Lex Machina has been continually reinventing its products and itself, having just this year expanded from patent law to trademark and copyright litigation as well. Is that just the culture of the enterprise or is it the need to stay ahead of the market? “The answer is both,” Lemley says. “Good innovators always want to make things better. And if you’re not making your product better, you’re going to get left behind.”
