What We Do
Lex Machina enables lawyers to be better lawyers – much better lawyers.
We mine litigation data, revealing insights never before available about judges, lawyers, parties, and the subjects of the cases themselves, culled from millions of pages of litigation information. We call these insights Legal Analytics®, because analytics involves the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data.
Our customers use Legal Analytics to win in the highly competitive business and practice of law. Law firm attorneys and their staff use Lex Machina to pitch and land new clients and win lawsuits. Corporate counsel use Lex Machina to select and manage outside counsel and set litigation strategy and tactics.
Legal Analytics represents a paradigm shift for lawyers.
For the first time, lawyers can combine insights gleaned from bottom-up data with traditional top-down controlling authority found in statutes, rules, and court opinions. It’s new, it’s unorthodox and it’s extremely valuable. But Legal Analytics also brings lawyering back to its roots. It provides lawyers with facts on which to base opinions – the core element of good lawyering. Objective data replaces subjective “anec-data.”
