Litigation Analytics

The term “litigation analytics” describes research tools that illuminate trends or patterns in how disputes are resolved in the court system, and how these trends or patterns are impacted by the nature of the dispute, the jurisdiction in play, the judge assigned to the case, the law firms representing the parties in the dispute, and other factors.  Often, litigation analytics platforms will include data visualization features, and may even offer “predictive” advice concerning the likely outcome of different strategies or actions.

Examples of litigation analytics platforms include:

Bloomberg Law: Litigation Analytics Dashboard

Lexis Advance: Litigation Profile Suite

Lex Machina (discussed above due to its “A.I.” qualities).

Westlaw Profiler
