Challenge

The client is the first and only law firm intelligence platform designed by former top firm attorneys and legal search professionals to provide an online database of law firm jobs, candidate profiles, and law firm analytics. The client required support on extracting data from data management platforms and over 2,000 online sources. In addition, daily updates were required.

Solution

A tailored data collection web scraper was developed to support the data gathering, filtering, categorization, and updating of the highly accurate database of the client. The data sources were mostly unstructured texts, which made it important to transform the data into a unified format first. On top of the data, several AI algorithms were implemented to categorize attorney's practice areas and predict when an attorney may leave a job.

Impact

The backend of the data collection, categorization, and filtering of a comprehensive platform was built to deliver targeted candidates, law firms, and jobs searches, as well as unparalleled market intelligence. This enabled the client to focus its most efforts on developing the business side of its platform.
