Menlo Park, CA – March 29, 2022 – Lex Machina, a leader in legal analytics and a LexisNexis company, unveiled an API Developer Portal. This portal allows law firms and legal departments, within any industry, to integrate unrivaled legal data, content and analytics with their existing systems, applications and processes. 

Lex Machina’s API Developer Portal offers law firms and organizations unparalleled access to comprehensive data analytics by incorporating their entire pre-existing data stacks with Lex Machina’s industry-leading legal data pool. Benefits of using this portal for a strategic approach to data analytics include:

  • Self-Serve Portal with Update Notifications:  Empowers organizations to build flexible and scalable data environments that address their unique use-cases. Alerts users to changes in cases, dockets, legislation or regulations, or news mentioning issues, clients or prospects, and delivers them via email or to their work environment.

  • Holistic Data Analytics: Incorporates Lex Machina news, content, data, analytics and insights directly into an organization’s work environment. 

  • Platform-Agnostic: Enables organizations to combine Lex Machina data and analytics with internal and third-party data in a single search and access associated documents without switching between multiple applications.

  • Unmatched Data Classifications and Normalization Process: Enables organizations to clean, normalize and tag their internal data to improve the accuracy and relevance of searches and better integrate with Lex Machina data, context and applications.

“Our top priority at Lex Machina is to bring legal analytics to all areas of law to ensure that our clients are provided with the most up-to-date and relevant information,” says Karl Harris, CEO of Lex Machina. “Our new API makes legal analytics available everywhere, to seamlessly support the day-to-day operations of lawyers and in-house counselors.”

The Lex Machina API gives organizations access to analytical data and insights they won’t find on any competitive platform, including case resolutions, damages, remedies, findings, and the most accurate and current information available on attorneys, law firms and parties. The API keeps attorneys informed about critical case information, including what was actually litigated in a case, how it ended, whether damages were awarded, all parties involved and other critical information used to make strategic legal and business decisions. The analytics data can be integrated with an organization’s CRM, matter management or other applications, or accessed with one click via widgets on the organization’s internal dashboard, practice pages or intranet. No other analytics provider can match the data quality, quantity and accuracy of Lex Machina’s analytics.

The API Developer Portal contains several helpful, interactive tools that fully explain the benefits of the various APIs and allow organizations to try them out using real data so they can better understand the potential use-cases, customization options and technical requirements.
