LegalMation, pioneering developer of the first platform that automates early stage litigation work by leveraging innovative IBM Watson™ technology, announces today that Walmart will implement LegalMation’s automated solution for all new lawsuits in key litigation areas as part of Walmart’s initial case assignment process.
LegalMation’s platform provides in-house legal teams and outside counsel the ability to respond to lawsuits and to draft the initial round of discovery requests in less than 2 minutes, shaving as much as 10 hours of attorney time on each lawsuit. By simply uploading a PDF copy of a lawsuit, LegalMation automatically prepares a draft answer and initial set of targeted requests for documents, form interrogatories and special interrogatories.
“With a busy legal department handling matters across the globe, and managing a large number of outside counsel on these matters, we welcome innovative and practical solutions to increase efficiency and free up our attorneys’ time to focus on more strategic activities,” said Alan Bryan, Senior Associate General Counsel, Legal Operations and Outside Counsel Management, Walmart Inc. “LegalMation is exactly the type of innovative A.I. technology that brings smart, efficient changes to the legal profession. We are committed to offering customers everyday low prices and are continuously looking for ways to take costs out of the system.”
“We are excited to team up with Walmart to find practical ways to lower costs and respond to the challenges of the new competitive legal market,” said James M. Lee, Co-Founder and CEO of LegalMation. “Walmart’s visionary legal team is an industry leader in adopting innovative solutions.”
LegalMation™ is a California-based technology company. It is led by a group of experienced litigators and technology specialists, dedicated to revolutionizing the practice of law through technology aimed at both in-house legal departments and law firms.
