Legal research and technology firm LexisNexis recently announced the launch of Lexis Legal Analytics in Australia.
The service is a suite of analytics tools that use big data and innovative technologies to deliver insights and streamline manual processes, according to a statement from LexisNexis.
“LexisNexis has a proud history of quality content and solutions that are based upon accuracy and comprehensiveness,” said Simon Wilkins, general manager of LexisNexis Australia.
“Lexis Legal Analytics draws upon 100 years of legal content publishing with the excellence of cutting-edge analytics technologies, including machine learning and natural language processing.
“This platform aims to make traditional legal work more insightful and is the result of us listening to industry feedback and applying highly advanced analytics technology to our vast content set. For our clients, this will mean efficiency and confidence that no cases and insights have been overlooked in their preparation.”
The first showcase module to be introduced is LexisNexis’ High Court Analyzer. This tool can analyse thousands of pages of High Court judgments to deliver insights into people and their connections, legal outcomes, words and phrases judicially considered and most cited cases, according to LexisNexis.
“Building a winning case is not just about getting your legal research right, it’s also about understanding the people involved, their connections and potential outcomes,” the company said.
“High Court Analyzer allows users to analyse the networks and connections of people involved in High Court cases, maximising the chances of success by assisting to identify the most experienced legal team for a specific matter.
“In addition, the focus on interactive visualisation available within High Court Analyzer adds another dimension to legal research and case strategy, and the platform has been optimised for use across a range of devices.”
The announcement follows the recent ranking of Australian litigators issued by US analytics firm Premonition.
