Welcome to episode 325 of the AI in Action podcast, the show where we break down the hype and explore the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.
Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI in the United States and Europe.
Today’s guest is Nicole Clark, CEO and Co-Founder at Trellis Research in Los Angeles. Founded in 2017, Trellis is a state trial court legal research and analytics platform with AI-based insights on judges, opposing counsel, motions, dockets and legal issues. They make state trial court data searchable and analyze it to give law firms insights into the way judges are ruling. Legal teams are able to “Google” search state trial court records and uncover key intelligence on opposing counsel, motions, rulings, dockets and other legal issues.
Prior to founding Trellis, Nicole was a business litigation and labor and employment attorney who handled litigation in both state and federal courts. She regularly represented multinational corporations in claims ranging from high-profile trade secret disputes to complex class-action litigation. Frustrated by sending internal emails and collecting anecdotes on judges in order to make strategic case recommendations, she built Trellis to solve her own need for access to data, information and analytics at the state trial court level.
