Casetext is Automating Litigation

SAN FRANCISCO–([1])–Casetext, the legal technology company known for its groundbreaking A.I. legal research platform, today announces a new product that will define litigation automation: Compose. Compose, which automates the first draft of a legal brief, is poised to disrupt the $437 billion1 legal services industry and fundamentally change our understanding of what types of professional work are uniquely human.

Writing the first draft of a brief is historically a complicated process that often takes 10-80 hours of billable work: searching case law databases, consulting treatises, digging through brief banks, etc. Compose enables an attorney to construct a compelling, well-supported legal argument in 20 minutes. You simply enter basic information about the brief you want to draft, and Compose provides the available arguments and applicable legal standards, which you can add with a click.

Compose is powered by Parallel Search, a breakthrough new search technology developed by Casetext. Parallel Search, which applies a transformer-based neural language model (the latest technique in NLP), automates the process of finding legal precedent to support the attorney’s argument.

“Traditional search technology matches based on words and synonyms. That only gets you so far in the law, where arguments are based on concepts and analogies,” says Javed Qadrud-Din, Casetext’s Director of Machine Learning and an ex-lawyer. “Parallel Search finds documents that contain matching concepts, even if they don’t use any of the same language.”

Leading law firms – including Ogletree Deakins, Sheppard Mullin, and Bowman and Brooke – are already embracing the technology. They see it as a competitive edge in an industry where clients want to work with firms that will produce high-quality work product efficiently.

“Casetext has clearly examined writing motions as part of an attorney’s work, and they have come up with a groundbreaking new way of automating a good part of that process. I think that is going to make it one of the most important tools in our attorneys’ toolkit,” says Flyn Flesher, Knowledge Management Counsel Supervisor at Ogletree Deakins.

Compose’s automation of motion practice stands to reshape the $437 billion per year spent on legal services in the United States. Fortune 200 companies each spend an average of $140 million per year on legal services. Leveraging Compose will enable them to dramatically cut that spending without compromising on the quality of their representation.

“After automation, what’s left are the most interesting, substantive, strategic parts of legal practice, without the drudgery, the expense, and the inefficiency,” says Jake Heller, Casetext CEO and co-founder. “We’re making space for lawyers to make new arguments, pursue new strategies, and experiment with new business models. But what’s maybe most exciting about this, and any truly innovative technology, is that we don’t know exactly what the impacts will be. Automation allows for imagination.”
