Gavelytics Launches Legal Business Intelligence Tool

First-of-its-kind AI platform provides legal business intelligence tool and expands judicial analytics to New York and Texas counties

LOS ANGELES (JANUARY 2020) – Gavelytics, a Los Angeles-based legal technology software company that offers insights into civil trial court judges and the law firms and companies that appear before them, has launched its business analytics tool. Gavelytics’ Business Intelligence Tool merges judicial and motion practice technologies with trial court analytics about law firms and litigants. Users can access useful data from a single platform to make smarter business decisions.


Gavelytics’ Business Intelligence Tool provides information about law firms’ and litigants’ state trial court activities. According to founder and CEO, Rick Merrill, “Gavelytics helps law firms and litigators grow their firms and practices more successfully. The data enables users to better understand the activities of competing law firms and opposing counsel, and to see the litigation histories, including dockets and various litigation documents.” Merrill said, “Lawyers can use this data to manage client expectations, avoid wasted motions, budget more accurately, pitch clients and prospective clients more effectively, and plan their motions and litigation strategy. Law firms can harness information to make better business decisions which are crucial to succeeding in today’s competitive legal market.”


Gavelytics also is expanding the capability of its patented Judicial Analytics Tool. Its AI-powered solutions have helped litigators quickly identify judges’ tendencies in California, Florida and Nevada. Now, Gavelytics is providing access to state court data from various additional counties in New York and Texas. New York data available to Gavelytics users is from the New York Supreme Court system which services the state’s 62 counties and handles nearly 1.4 million civil case filings per year. The added Texas data is from the trial court systems of the state’s major metropolitan areas.


According to Gavelytics user Andy Baum, a partner with Glaser Weil, “Before Gavelytics, the only feedback we could get about a judge was general, anecdotal information from colleagues and friends. Now, Gavelytics gives us real information based upon how that judge has actually ruled in other cases.”


Named among the National Law Journals’ 2019 Emerging Legal Technologies, Gavelytics is focused on bringing its state-level trial court analytics platform to more attorneys nationwide. Expansion to cover Illinois courts is expected later in 2020.
