Analytics, meet content: LexisNexis acquires Lex Machina

In an acquisition that brings together cutting edge analytics with a trove of content, LexisNexis has acquired litigation data mining company Lex Machina, which through its Legal Analytics platform provides insights about judges, lawyers, parties and patents from IP litigation.

The Silicon Valley company, which says it has so far been inhibited from expanding its services due to a lack of content, delivers a software-as-a-service platform that helps lawyers predict the behaviours and outcomes of different legal strategies by mining, tagging and categorising millions of Federal court dockets and documents.
