Just last week, Lex Machina introduced its newest module which will cover trade secrets litigation – one of the most requested additions to this valuable analytical platform.
Lex Machina is an important tool for all trade secret litigators, drawing from nearly 10,000 trade secret cases in federal court since 2009 to provide in-depth strategic insights on cases with allegations ranging from state trade secret misappropriation to Defend Trade Secrets Act (“DTSA”) violations.
Lex Machina offers analytical data on key aspects of trade secret cases, including the size of damages awards in a given jurisdiction to the likelihood of securing a preliminary injunction to the most common law firms representing plaintiffs in trade secret cases. Lex Machina can be used to both track trends in trade secret cases over time and drill into specific cases and download copies of relevant pleadings or motions.
Lex Machina also can be a valuable tool both to advise clients who are interested in how long it takes to resolve a trade secrets case either on dispositive motions or at trial and develop a solid legal strategy on issues like whether to file in a certain jurisdiction based on a judge’s track record with trade secrets cases.
For anyone practicing in the trade secrets space who wants a leg up on the latest trends and authoritative insights backed by data, Lex Machina could be a game changer and won’t remain secret for long.
