The legal industry is filled with buzz about how the latest tech can help manage a firm more efficiently and more profitably.
But what about legal tech specifically built to help your firm win big, appellate-level cases?
Why Data Matters
At the beginning of a recent webinar titled “Want To Get An Edge On Appeals? This Data Can Help,” Anne Wise Kann, project manager at legal analytics firm Lex Machina, presents viewers with a scenario:
“In our hypothetical, I’m an attorney and I’ve been hired by a big box electronic store. My client is being sued in the Northern District of Georgia because the plaintiff claimed a big box fell on them in the Atlanta store. And, the district court has already found that our client was negligent and has ordered a damage award in favor of the plaintiff. Now the client wants to figure out our next move. Should we appeal this ruling?”
There are a myriad of factors to consider here, but they’re tied to a search for clues as to how the appellate court might respond to an appeal.
Answering that question is where data-based investigations can give attorneys an edge when it comes to making potentially high-risk decisions.
What Appellate Analytics Can Do for You
Wise Kann demonstrates the capabilities of Appellate Analytics, describing how it might assist the attorney in the scenario above and noting the types of information the program can provide.
Users may access a vast amount of information, including comparisons of the reversal rates of judges in a particular circuit or even data related to cases that originated somewhere other than a traditional district court before moving to the appellate courts.
