Lex Machina captures data by crawling PACER, the ITC’s EDIS, and the USPTO website every 24 hours.

Lex Machina cleans, codes, and tags all data using Lexpressions™, our proprietary Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning engine. For every case, Lex Machina extracts the players involved, including the attorneys, law firms, parties, and judges. 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.

Lex Machina then delivers Legal Analytics® to users through its web application.
