Reduce Risk, Validate Strategy, and Win Lawsuits
As corporate counsel you are challenged to operate the legal department like any other business unit, delivering more and better legal service at less cost. You are expected to provide metrics that help asses risk, validate your legal strategy, and help you win. Lex Machina enables you with innovative technology to help you reduce your litigation risk, improve effectiveness, predict legal spend, and identify and hire the best talent, in-house, as well as on your outside counsel team.
Corporate Law Departments Rely on Lex Machina
Outside Counsel Selection
Have you been pitched by several law firms that all have “extensive expertise” before the judge in your case? Only Lex Machina can show you a comprehensive overview of each law firm’s experience before your judge, including outcomes for the client in each case. See what other companies your attorneys are working for. Now you can compare counsel to discover who really has the best experience.
Early Case Assessment
When you get sued, you want fast answers to basic questions about the plaintiff and their law firm—without having to wait and pay for the information. Traditional research tools might be able to show you a list of your opponent’s cases, but only Lex Machina can show you actionable insights—like the average time to termination and outcomes of those cases—in one click.
Trying to decide whether it’s worth filing an expensive motion? Lex Machina can show you statistics about the success of your potential motion, tailored to the sample of cases you care about. If your judge has only granted a motion to transfer 3 out of 50 times in the last five years, you might save your money by skipping that motion and investing in a different strategy.
Are you worried that you’re spending twice as much money as your industry peers on litigation? Lex Machina’s unique Peer Company Analysis helps you to quickly and effectively compare your litigation behavior and the resulting outcomes to that of your peers. See which law firms your peers use, their case loads, time to trial, patent invalidity outcomes, and more.
“I use Lex Machina throughout the day to look at cases and see where they are at any given time. Whenever a new issue arises, I can see instantly what we might be up against: who they are, what counsel they use, whom they have sued in the past, and how they have done.”
