Premonition200Premonition today announced the Barristers and solicitor’s firms with the best win ratio in the Patents Court. Over the last three years Bristows LLP has had a 58% win rate in their appearances in the Patents Court.

Henry Carr Q.C. of 11 South Square and James Mellor Q.C. of 8 New Square have both enjoyed 100% win rates in their appearances in the court.

Premonition has the world’s largest legal database and can offer its UK clients detailed analysis of all results of almost 12000 High Court cases. A surprising range of businesses and firms are using the data supplied in many ways.

For example, to reduce the risk of losses by instructing those barristers with good track records, to select the solicitors’ firms with similar pedigree and to use the mass data to help predict insurance liability from events leading to litigation.

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.
