Award-winning technology provider InfoTrack has today announced a quicker and easier way to find and analyse information on global companies and individuals.

Sourcing information from local and global jurisdictions often involves convoluted search processes and the manual drawing of organisational structures and relationships. To simplify the process, InfoTrack has launched a new service whereby clients have access to a range of comprehensive reports that access key data sources, agents and repositories around the world at the click of a button.

The information is then illustrated using REVEAL, InfoTracks’ data visualisation tool, organising the information into an illustrative structure in an interactive workspace that features shareholders, directors, locations and any associated organisations. REVEAL gives the user an ability to quickly view past and present structures of the organisation, using a unique timeline feature.

Barry Vickery, General Manager of Corporate Services comments “In our daily lives, we are now used to search engine functionality as a convenient way of finding information quickly. However, we still have to explore the results in detail to ensure reliability. Similarly, law firms are currently spending much of their time looking for, and analysing business information that is more difficult to find. Our new set of reports, available through the InfoTrack platform, are generated using technology that has direct connections with trusted sources around the world, removing the need to access multiple websites.

Barry continues, “Taking Companies House as an example, our technology consolidates information from both Companies House Direct and Companies House Beta and then provides smart technology in the form of REVEAL, so the information is visualised into a workspace. So, not only is the information reliable but the technology adds real value by making it very easy to explore past and present structures and shareholder information. That saves precious time whilst giving users a confidence in the information procured.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
