Why UniCourt is the Competitive Intelligence Solution of the Year

UniCourt is a leader in making court data more accessible and useful through our Legal Data as a Service (LDaaS) via our APIs and online app. UniCourt provides LDaaS via APIs to clients for business development and intelligence, litigation analytics, litigation tracking, case research, investigations, background checks, due diligence, compliance, underwriting, machine learning models, and process automation.

We provide competitive intelligence solutions to a wide range of industries and an increasing number of different types of firms within those industries. The core industries we provide ongoing, enhanced competitive intelligence solutions to are Legal, Finance, Insurance, Investigations, and News Media.

We released our first Legal Data APIs in 2018. Since that time, UniCourt has taken years worth of feedback and insights from AmLaw firms and Fortune 500 companies to develop our next generation of APIs. Along with these new game changing APIs, UniCourt has also introduced a new and powerful search query language that allows for maximum flexibility and precision for finding the data you need. 

UniCourt has deeply integrated our entity normalization and analytics with our case search functionality, so users can seamlessly move from a case to analytics on connected attorneys, law firms, parties, and judges. Users can also alternatively go from looking at analytics and intelligence on attorneys, law firms, parties, and judges to gathering all of the underlying data and documents connected to their litigation.

UniCourt provides API access to normalized court data from state and federal (PACER) courts, one central portal for real-time access to state and federal (PACER) court data for research needs, and automatic case tracking. UniCourt has developed a world class site garnering over 2 million views per month with a free case search engine. We have also published millions of court cases online for free and provide the public with free legal news content on trending litigation in state and federal courts. This is all thanks to our amazing Engineering, Digital Marketing, SEO, and Content teams constantly working to make the law more accessible for all.

“We are so pleased to be listed among the 2022 award winners from LegalTech Breakthrough,” said Josh Blandi, UniCourt’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Our overarching mission is to improve access to the law. We were one of the first movers on providing real-time, bulk access to court data through our Legal Data APIs. We’ve also been putting out the clarion call for using Legal Data APIs in the legal industry, and other industries like finance, insurance, investigations, and news media, since 2018.” 

“In recent years, we’ve seen the biggest legacy legal research providers attempt to follow our path, but their Legal Data API products are not as easy or intuitive to use,” noted Josh. “We also work closely with our clients to understand their unique use cases and actively seek to build working partnerships with them to enhance our APIs, creating new endpoints and data objects to fit their needs and the broader community of our clients across different industries.”

“APIs are how the business world moves around data to gather intelligence, build analytics, and automate processes. Well before the pandemic began upending the way the legal industry looks at legal technology and legal data, law librarians had begun developing portals using APIs. Though Legal Data APIs have been around for years, the legal industry, as opposed to finance, insurance, and investigations industries, is finally beginning to play catch up to leverage the goldmine of data APIs can unlock for legal professionals,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. 

“UniCourt breaks through the field of legal technology solutions with superior API products and a collaborative approach to working with their clients,” said Bryan. “We salute their ongoing efforts to educate the legal industry on the need for APIs to develop an ecosystem of structured data and analytics. Congratulations on being our choice for the ‘Competitive Intelligence Solution of the Year’ award.”
