  • It’s a fact: IP has become critical to the bottom line

    Corporate success — revenues and share price — used to revolve primarily around the ability to make and sell novel products or services. Boards and executives saw IP as important, but defensive.

    Today, protection of new patents, copyrights and trademarks drives business planning and operations.

    IP licenses, purchases and sales directly impact profits. IP litigation consumes precious resources and can result in huge success or threaten company ruin. In fact, over the past 35 years, intangible assets have grown from 17% to 80% of the market value of the S&P 500.
    Lex Machina enables companies to develop data-driven IP business strategies to succeed in this tough environment: win lawsuits, close transactions, and maximize IP value.

    Features

    Outside Counsel Selection

    Have you been pitched by several law firms that all have “extensive expertise” before the judge in your case? Only Lex Machina can show you a comprehensive overview of each law firm’s experience before your judge, including outcomes for the client in each case. See what other companies your attorneys are working for. Now you can compare counsel to discover who really has the best experience.

    Early Case Assessment

    When you get sued, you want fast answers to basic questions about the plaintiff and their law firm—without having to wait and pay for the information. Traditional research tools might be able to show you a list of your opponent’s cases, but only Lex Machina can show you actionable insights—like the average time to termination and outcomes of those cases—in one click.

    Motion Strategy

    Trying to decide whether it’s worth filing an expensive motion? Lex Machina can show you statistics about the success of your potential motion, tailored to the sample of cases you care about. If your judge has only granted a motion to transfer 3 out of 50 times in the last five years, you might save your money by skipping that motion and investing in a different strategy.

    IP Transactions

    Are you looking to strengthen your IP portfolio through acquisition? Performing due diligence or competitive analysis? Or exploring how to monetize your IP? With one glance you can view the litigation history for an entire patent portfolio, including the number of times each patent has been asserted, findings of infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability, and all damages awarded. Our Patent Similarity Engine lets you broaden your search, and discover similar, but unobvious patents. Analyze the litigation track record of potential licensees. Find out how often they have sought a declaratory judgment, were involved in litigation regarding royalties, or exceeded the scope of a license. Find companies that settle quickly, as opposed to those who aggressively pursue invalidity claims.

    Peer Benchmarking

    Are you worried that you’re spending twice as much money as your industry peers on litigation? Lex Machina’s unique Peer Company Analysis helps you to quickly and effectively compare your litigation behavior and the resulting outcomes to that of your peers. See which law firms your peers use, their case loads, time to trial, patent invalidity outcomes, and more.
