New (Aug.-Sept. 2015): Preventing Litigation: An Early Warning System to Get Big Value Out of Big Data

Preventing Litigation

“An enormous accomplishment.”Thomas D. Barton, Louis and Hermoine Brown Professor of the Law at California Western School of Law

As a lawyer or client, if you prefer a fence at the top of a cliff to an ambulance at the bottom, this insightful book is essential reading.” –Professor Richard Susskind, author of Tomorrow’s Lawyers

Preventing Litigation, for the first time, explains how to build an early warning system to identify the risk of litigation before the damage is done, and proves that there is big value in less litigation. The authors are subject matter experts, one in litigation, the other in computer science, and each has more than four decades of training and experience in their respective fields. Together, they present a way forward to a transformative revolution for the slow-moving world of law for the benefit of the fast- paced environment of the business world.
