Stewarts embraces data science with legal-tech start-up, Solomonic

Litigation law firm Stewarts has announced that their Commercial Disputes group will be working with litigation analytics and research start-up Solomonic, to pilot the release of their new platform.

Stewarts are exploring how data science and litigation analytics can add to their case preparation and strategy.

Julian Chamberlayne, Stewarts KM & Compliance Partner says: “A key part of litigating successfully is making the best possible decisions on everything from tactics to personnel, from arguments to settlement or taking a case to trial. The outcome of cases is influenced by the cumulative effect of those decisions. We look forward to collaborating with Solomonic as they continue to develop an analytics platform which we anticipate will give our litigators data and insight that will help inform the advice we provide to clients.”

He adds, “The use of data extracted from judgments, and smart analytics derived from that data, is one more way to supplement our expertise and further enhance our innovative approach to litigation – including litigation funding”.

For Solomonic, the opportunity to work with the UK’s largest litigation-only law firm will bring significant value and insight to the development of its analytics and research offering, planned for commercial launch to the wider legal sector in the autumn.

Solomonic Co-Founder Gideon Cohen said: “We are delighted to be working so closely with Stewarts. They are driven by a desire to get the best possible outcomes for their clients, and we believe that our innovative smart data and research tools will provide them with significant value.”

Behavioural scientist, Dr Henry Stott, Co-Founder of Solomonic and CEO of Decision Technology said, “We have developed a meticulous process for extracting high quality data from court documents and have observed reliable and interesting patterns within that data which support statistical and algorithmic modelling.  This has yielded significant insights for litigators.”
