Startups: BriefMine Launches New Legal Research Resource
BriefMine, a startup launching today, wants to make access to legal research more cost-effective. It is one of only a handful of legal tech companies using technology to push the boundaries of legal practice.
For legal tech entrepreneurs, this is an opportunity for a simpler, cheaper alternative. “It has historically proven a tough nut to crack,” BriefMine’s founder, Harry Zeitlin, told me. “By creating a high technology platform at a very low price point, we are paving the way for further, and much-needed disruption, which will ultimately benefit legal providers,” he said.
The company has developed a database filled with legal briefs and opinions. For lawyers, relevant information will surface using a simple query-based, natural-language search. Briefmine says the beta product is already being used by 100 lawyers at small firms, and advisors have jumped on board from firms like Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, a favorite for tech companies. In the future, it may compete with TraceLaw, a San Francisco-based startup that is building a case law search engine.
