Lex Machina captures data by crawling PACER, the ITC’s EDIS, the USPTO, and state court data, every 24 hours. Lex Machina then cleans, codes, and tags all data using Lexpressions®, our proprietary Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning software. For every case, Lex Machina extracts the players involved, including the attorneys, law firms, parties, and judges.
Our Attorney Data Engine™ then updates attorney and law firm information and adds missing participants. We identify asserted properties (such as patents), findings, and outcomes, including any damages awarded. We also build a detailed timeline linking all the briefs, motions, orders, opinions, and other filings for every case.
Our team of legal experts reviews all cases that are flagged by the machine for human review, adding valuable data. Lex Machina then delivers legal analytic insights to our users through our unique Case List Analyzer™.
