LexisNexis Adds Lex Machina’s Attorney Analytics into Online Legal Information Solution
LexisNexis Legal & Professional, a global provider of information and analytics, has integrated attorney analytics from Lex Machina’s Legal Analytics into its flagship online legal information solution, Lexis Advance.
The integration of Lex Machina’s attorney analytics enhances the functionality and depth of LexisNexis’ service, making it an even more valuable resource to users, said Jeff Pfeifer, vice president of Product Management for North American Research Solutions at LexisNexis.
In recent years, LexisNexis has been integrating data, analytics and intelligent tools into existing products to enhance their value and help legal practitioners can work more efficiently and strategically. In addition to the development of Legal Analytics tools including MedMal Navigator, LexisNexis Verdict & Settlement Analyzer, Legislative Outlook, the company has acquired several companies in the analytics space including Lex Machina, Intelligize and Ravel Law, in order to expand its analytics capabilities and deliver greater functionality to customers. Over the past year, LexisNexis has focused on creating greater synergies within this product portfolio to provide an integrated legal analytics platform designed to deliver on its vision of the data-driven lawyer.
Acquired by LexisNexis in November 2015, the Lex Machina Legal Analytics platform helps to give attorneys an advantage at trial by revealing insights on opposing parties and counsel, tracking records and key decisions by presiding judges, and highlighting trends on case resolutions, findings, and damages.
According to the companies, the addition of attorney analytics complements the earlier integration of Lex Machina’s judge and law firm analytics, empowering legal professionals with information and insights they need to make strategic, data-driven decisions, anticipate behaviors and illuminate probable case outcomes.
With this integration, users can select active links on attorney names in full-text Lexis Advance case law and seamlessly access Lex Machina summary charts on attorney case filing history and other important information across a broad range of practice areas, including Patent, Copyright, Trademark, Antitrust, Securities, Employment, Commercial, Product Liability and Federal Bankruptcy Appeals cases. Lexis Advance users with a subscription to Lex Machina can drill further into a wealth of analytics to uncover vital intelligence for making critical litigation decisions.
