Litigation is about storytelling. The most successful trial lawyers find the stories in their cases and build their strategy around telling those stories. But as litigation involves ever-expanding volumes of electronic documents and emails, finding those stories becomes an ever-greater challenge.
For that reason, analytics—software tools that help reveal the stories in data— are becoming increasingly important for litigators. Analytics help trial teams make sense of volumes of electronic information. They are the most effective way to organize, visualize and search case data to find patterns, map interactions and chart timelines.
