LawyerFair Daily Podcast #62


Toby Unwin from Premonition speaks about how big data will change the way we select our lawyers.
Released: Aug 24, 2015

Today we chat with Toby Unwin, Chief Innovation Officer at www.Premonition.ai. Toby explains more about how Premonition uses Big Data to drive greater transparency into law and provide new insight into the actual court room performances of litigation lawyers – in the US, UK and beyond.

This kind of data driven analysis is going to have a dramatic impact on an historically opaque market, by enabling legal consumers to make decisions based on actual performance, rather than the less scientific channels of traditional legal recommendation and procurement. It’s also challenging what a lawyer can charge, what a client can pay and a measurement of the good, the bad and the ugly within the same firm.

Premonition are already causing quite a stir in the UK – judging by this recent thread from the Law Gazette, “‘Moneyball’ research ranks top law firms by win percentage.” So if you have any interest in the future of legal services and how lawyers will be selected in the future, it’s a must listen podcast.
