Integrating Information and Distilling Meaning for Rapid Insight
Whether your firm subscribes to CourtLink (Lexis), Court Wire (Westlaw), CourtListener, Docket Navigator, Courthouse News, PACER, or other data providers — receiving updates via email or API — InOutsource can centralize, normalize and analyze it all. Collectively, that can mean integrating case information and detail from over two hundred million dockets, spanning well over 1,200 State and Federal courts.
Creating Complete Context
When relevant cases are identified, the system can provide even greater context — far beyond matter type, jurisdiction, parties and synopsis. Integrating added detail from internal systems enables firms to better evaluate whether they want to pursue a new opportunity, who should pursue it, and the best strategy for pitching and winning the business.
This richer detail can include data from financial and practice management systems (e.g. for existing clients, past billing and work details), CRM and KM systems (e.g. internal lawyer relationship data and experience), and new business acceptance systems (e.g. key findings of a preliminary conflicts check).
Giving KM and Lawyers a True Business Development Edge
Using this solution, KM, marketing, and business development teams can effectively configure, curate, and communicate the new case alerts most relevant to the practices and preferences of lawyers ready to act on fresh opportunities. And firm management can use aggregate trend dashboards to evaluate opportunities for expansion or cross-selling — into new industry segments, new geographies, or new practice areas.
With greater insight, firms also gain a powerful advantage over their competition — both in the pursuit of new business, and in the battle for lateral talent looking to practice in the most modern environment.
