Forthcoming events

Join Lex Machina for a Live Webcast

During this 30-minute webcast our speakers will discuss how successful lawyers leverage Legal Analytics to win more cases and close more business.

Until recently, to gain insights into the behavior of specific attorneys, firms, judges, or parties, litigators had to rely on colleagues who may have personally dealt with them in the past. Today, winning attorneys use legal analytics to reveal trends and patterns in past litigation that inform legal strategy and anticipate outcomes in current cases.
