About the Company

Our company is a technology startup committed to use data analytics and machine learning to improve the legal practice in the United States and China. The ultimate goal is to make high quality legal service affordable and available to all who need it. We rely on expert technologists to build and apply machine learning, clustering, predictive models, regression, and other statistical methods to preform time consuming and costly legal tasks that are suitable for automation.

Our initial target is to use machine learning to help expert discovery in the U. S. litigation. We are building a network of scientific experts and supporting software to match the right expert to attorneys’ litigation needs. We are in the process of rolling out services to law firms including providing on point publications in science, medicine, economy and statistics uncovered by our experts and machine learning tools to support attorneys’ positions in court.

We also plan to use machine learning to evaluate patents. We are working on the analytics of a variety of relevant data, in particular the unstructured data including case law and other legal precedents, statutes, legislative materials, scholarly references, administrative precedents and procedures, and paper documents related to the patented subject matter and patent application documents. The analytics would allow us to provide predicative analysis of strength and potential weakness of the patents to help attorneys in patent licensing negotiations, corporate transaction due diligence, and pre litigation investigation and strategic planning.
