The Lex Machina Story: From Start-Up to LexisNexis – Artificial Lawyer. Lex Machina is one of the most well known of the new breed of legal tech companies making use of natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to help lawyers.

The fact that it is part of legal publishing giant, LexisNexis, has no doubt helped in this regard. But, what does Lex Machina actually do and how did it get to where it is today? Artificial Lawyer caught up with California-based CEO, Josh Becker, to find out more about how the AI legal analytics company got started and how it has evolved. The first thing to note is that Becker is not one of the original founders of Lex Machina. In a world where so many of the legal tech start-ups are still led by their original creators, non-founder CEOs usually indicate that the company has moved well beyond the world of parents’ garages and co-working spaces. This is certainly the case with Lex Machina, which actually got started as far back as 2007, a decade ago. The Origin Story What Happened Next The LexisNexis Connection So, what now?
