LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of information and analytics, today announced it has integrated attorney analytics from Lex Machina’s award-winning Legal Analytics® into its flagship online legal information solution, Lexis Advance®. 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.
“LexisNexis is committed to offering next-generation legal research solutions to help legal professionals work more efficiently, make more informed decisions and drive success for their clients,” said Jeff Pfeifer, Vice President of Product Management for North American Research Solutions at LexisNexis. “The integration of Lex Machina’s attorney analytics enhances the functionality and depth of our flagship Lexis Advance legal information service, making it an even more valuable resource to our users.”
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.
Acquired by LexisNexis in November 2015, the Lex Machina Legal Analytics platform gives attorneys a distinct advantage at trial by revealing strategic insights on opposing parties and counsel, tracking records and key decisions by presiding judges, and illuminating trends on case resolutions, findings, damages and more.
“LexisNexis is the leader in Legal Analytics. It leads the industry in terms of integrating analytics into its existing product portfolio and creating new solutions to address the changing needs of today’s attorneys,” said Josh Becker, CEO of Lex Machina. “The integration of attorney, law firm and judge analytics into Lexis Advance is part of a larger LexisNexis strategy of creating a complementary suite of legal analytics offerings that will improve both the business and practice of law.”
In recent years, LexisNexis has pursued a dedicated strategy to continually integrate data, analytics and intelligent tools into existing products to enhance their value and ensure legal practitioners can work more efficiently and strategically. In addition to the development of award-winning 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, all with the purpose of expanding its analytics capabilities and delivering greater functionality to customers.
