Thinking about Litigation Alpha

First, you might ask, “what is Litigation Alpha?” Good question. I just found out the other day. It is a web platform that offers US court activity tracking services on a fee basis.  So you can monitor cases pending involving a given party or lawyer. Gaston Kroub wrote about it for “Above the Law” and his firm sponsored it.

My reaction: clients will need a lot more tracking than they used to and this type of service will grow.  Why is it needed? There are a bunch of reasons. But if this is needed, who will provide it? My guess is that law firms won’t take this on. They are too busy practicing law. We will need a new type of market player.
