Compose by Casetext was trained in employment law via machine learning technology paired with attorney expertise
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Casetext today announces the first Compose employment law collection: Wage and Hour. This is an expansion of Casetext’s Compose brief-writing technology that represents the first time Compose has specialized in a particular area of law.
“The volume of work and the clients’ expectations for efficiency make employment law the perfect fit for Compose,” says Casetext CEO Jake Heller. “For a long time, people have assumed that researching and laying out the legal argument requires many hours of up-front work, and firms have had to write off time and reduce rates in order to meet clients’ expectations for efficiency. This technology, proven to reduce researching and writing time by 76%, will enable law firms to both exceed clients’ expectations and improve their own bottom line.”
The Compose Wage and Hour Collection covers 16 of the most commonly-filed Wage and Hour motions. The collection includes the following motions, all tailored specifically to substantive legal issues arising in wage and hour litigation, in federal court as well as California and New York state courts:
- Motions to Compel Arbitration
- Motions to Compel Discovery
- Motions for Class Certification (both Conditional Certification and Decertification under the FLSA, and Certification under Rule 23 for hybrid actions, in federal court)
- Motions for Summary Judgment
The release also includes a preview of a forthcoming Employment Discrimination collection: a motion to dismiss and motion for summary judgment of claims arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
The Compose Employment Collection will immediately be available to Compose clients, which include Ogletree Deakins, the first employment law firm to leverage the technology.
“We quickly saw the value and potential Compose could offer our clients in terms of delivering efficiency and quality work product,” said Flyn Flesher, Senior Manager of KM Counsel at Ogletree Deakins. “Ogletree Deakins has pledged to embrace technology and innovation to better serve our clients, and Compose is a natural demonstration of the commitment.”
