The global company LexisNexis announced the first five participants in its new Silicon Valley legal tech accelerator programme based in the Lex Machina offices in Menlo Park, California.

The five finalists – Visabot, TagDox, Separate.us, Ping, and JuriLytics – were selected from a list of 40+ promising startups for the interesting nature of their businesses and their innovative use of technology.

This is a fantastic success for the London-based TagDox which features on the Legal Geek Startup Map. TagDox is an AI-driven data analytics tool which allows users to identify and structure information.

Eli Luzac, the TagDox founder, commented:

We are excited to be working with the Lex Machina team in the heart of Silicon Valley with their mission to transforming law for the better.

Participant profiles

  • Visabot: An “immigration robot” powered by artificial intelligence that helps customers complete U.S. visa applications, including locating relevant open data about an applicant, guiding applicants in the process of gathering supporting documents, ensuring forms are filled out accurately, and drafting appropriate language to tell the applicant’s story.
  • TagDox: A legal document analysis tool that creates tags, allowing users to identify and structure information in a variety of document types, improving both the speed and the quality of the document review process; “tag results” can transform documents into easily readable summaries, checklists, database feeds or approval overviews.
  • Separate.us: A web-based application that automates legal document preparation for divorces and provides access to relevant professionals at affordable fixed rates, deploying a business model that targets both B2B and B2C customers.
  • Ping: An automated timekeeping application that collects all of a lawyer’s billable hours, capturing missed time and money (an estimated 20% across the industry), and operating entirely in the background in concert with standard legal billing software.
  • JuriLytics: An expert witness peer review service that attorneys can use to challenge their opponent’s experts with previously unobtainable credibility and bullet-proof their own expert’s work through vetting from the world’s top researchers (in any field of expertise).
