2022 Annual Survey finds that 68% of law firms use Legal Analytics – a 7% increase over last year – Yahoo Finance

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Lex Machina and LexisNexis release the results from their annual Impact of Legal Analytics survey. Each year Lex Machina reaches out to legal professionals nationwide, to get a clear view into how Legal Analytics technology is used and perceived.
This year's survey demonstrates the key drivers and barriers for legal analytics adoption, the value legal analytics brings to litigation practice, and how it is being utilized. More than 400 responses were received from U.S. legal professionals at law firms of all sizes.
Some of the key takeaways when comparing current users vs. non-users of legal analytics were:

Known Value 98% of respondents who currently use Legal Analytics believe that Legal Analytics is valuable or somewhat valuable for their legal practice, and even 78% of non-users say the same.
Drives Success 74% of those who use Legal Analytics said that successful litigation is the key driver for adopting Legal Analytics.
Demand for an API 63% of users would like to integrate their Legal Analytics with other organizational data
Drives Business 69% of users use Legal Analytics to pitch or demonstrate expertise to their clients
"The results demonstrate that not only are more people acutely aware of the benefits and impact that Legal Analytics has, but the ways they are finding those benefits continue to grow with the evolving needs of the industry," says Karl Harris, CEO at Lex Machina. "Ultimately, we are seeing great advancements in adoption that have propelled Legal Analytics from a new technology to a must-have for client acquisition, litigation success, recruitment, retention and so much more."
The survey gives insight into the shifting perspectives around this data. What was once feared as automation designed to replace the lawyer, has now been overwhelmingly accepted as a true asset to elevate the entirety of the legal practice. While there are still a few who have reservations about the adoption of Legal Analytics, those numbers are changing and the reasoning behind them is shifting. The survey results strongly suggest that as education on technology increases, this upward trend of adoption will continue to progress rapidly.
Lex Machina is hosting a webcast to discuss the findings of the survey on February 17, with Karl Harris, CEO of Lex Machina and Steven Lerner, senior reporter at Law360: 2022 Survey – The Impact of Legal Analytics.

PARIS (Reuters) -A $600 million contractual and safety dispute between Airbus and Qatar Airways deepened on Tuesday when the European planemaker revoked orders for two A350-1000 jets, days after ripping up an order from the Gulf carrier for 50 A321neos. Qatar Airways has sued Airbus for more than $600 million and is refusing to take delivery of further A350s until its regulator receives a formal analysis of erosion to the painted surface and underlying lightning protection on 21 of the jets. Airbus, which has two completed A350s ready for delivery to Qatar Airways, has said it has provided the necessary information on the problem of surface degradation and that the damage does not amount to a safety issue.
