What Does Our Team Do?

Our Case Data Analytics and Mining team provides highly effective analytical tools and dedicated specialists for powerful, rapid analysis of complex litigation case data to answer specific questions queried by case teams.

How Do We Do It?

Our team quickly analyzes large, complex data sets to solve challenging problems and identify key evidence. Analysts look for relationships in correspondence, financial information, user activity, and more to quickly identify patterns of relevant activity and recover/mitigate against damages.

Why Our Approach Works

Every case is evaluated individually to select the best tools and methods for the job. Custom interactive reports are generated to answer specific questions and explore data in new ways. We quickly perform calculations and comparisons to visualize data to assist in litigation.
