LexisNexis has today (10 September) unveiled the fourth cohort of its legal tech accelerator programme.
There are nine participants: Civvis, ClearstoneIP, Courtroom5, Discovery Genie, DueCourse, JDoe, Lawgood, TermScout and Tusk. See below for more on each of them.
“A record number of applicants applied for this latest round of the program,” said Jeff Pfeifer, chief product officer for North American research solutions at LexisNexis. “After three program cohorts, we have refined where the program has greatest impact and that is helping early-stage companies refine and strengthen their go-to-market and commercial plans. Building on our previously announced partnership, LexisNexis is also excited to welcome three Duke Law Tech Lab alumni to this program cohort.”
Over a period of 10 weeks, participants will receive mentoring and guidance throughout the program, which is based in the Menlo Park, CA offices of Lex Machina and at the Raleigh Technology Center for LexisNexis on the Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University.
Here is LexisNexis’ description of each of those participants:
• Civvis is a natural language platform that connects consumers with trusted legal solutions.
• ClearstoneIP is pioneering and modernizing patent clearance management with a purpose-built and uniquely collaborative web platform.
• Courtroom5 delivers access to justice to pro se litigants through a case management platform that provides bite-sized, just-in-time legal information, document templates, searchable case law, elements-to-evidence case analysis, and other litigation tools.
• Discovery Genie is an innovative web-based platform designed to simplify document production and indexing for litigators and paralegals.
• DueCourse is a learning and professional development platform that helps lawyers take control of their career and map and track their professional development through frictionless, personalized learning.
• JDoe is an anonymous, end-to-end encrypted reporting platform that connects survivors of sexual misconduct with world-class civil litigators to pursue justice together against repeat offenders.
• Lawgood helps lawyers make better contracts without expensive practice resources or time-consuming research using crowdsourced data and decision support technology.
• TermScout helps people and businesses understand contracts by providing simple reviews of commonly signed agreements.
• Tusk is automating the fragmented, painful and expensive estate settlement process.
Josh Becker, head of legal analytics at LexisNexis and chairman of Lex Machina said: “Our participants get to interact with other startups – including former startups like Lex Machina, Ravel and Law360 – and learn from each other on how to build their businesses, market their products, and succeed in this challenging and competitive legal environment. We look forward to seeing all of the great things that this fourth batch of tech accelerator participants will do.”
