Maynard & Gale is pleased to announce a recently launched partnership with Casetext to deploy CARA A.I., an automated legal research assistant powered by data science, expert analysis, and artificial intelligence, as part of the Firm’s ongoing efforts to deliver outstanding litigation performance to its clients.
“I have worked closely with Casetext over the past several years and had the opportunity to conduct research myself, and I can say that it is a comprehensive legal research solution for our IP litigation needs,” said Sasha Rao, chair of Maynard’s Intellectual Property Practice. “We continue to invest in technology to automate legal tasks thereby providing faster and better client service. Utilizing CARA for our legal research will greatly help us to continue to provide top-notch service to our clients by expediting our response time while also increasing the efficiency with which we prepare to address key legal arguments.”
Casetext’s CARA A.I. research tool uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to automate key legal research tasks narrowly-tailored to individual client needs.
