When LexisNexis acquired the legal analytics platform Lex Machina in November 2015, the the plan was to integrate Lex Machina’s analytics into various LexisNexis products and, in particular, its Lexis Advance legal research platform. Last January, it took the first step in that direction when it integrated judge analytics into Lexis Advance, and later in the year it added integration for law firm analytics.
Yesterday LexisNexis rolled out the third such integration, attorney analytics. Now, when Lexis Advance users are viewing full-text cases, they can click on the names of the attorneys involved in the case and view summary charts showing data about the attorney, such as the attorney’s case-filing history.
This works for the practice areas currently covered by Lex Machina: patent, copyright, trademark, antitrust, securities, employment, commercial, product liability and federal bankruptcy appeals.
From that summary page, Lexis Advance users who also have a subscription to Lex Machina can drill further into the full Lex Machina set of analytics.
