Exploring the ROSS and Fastcase partnership – LAC Group

Our users regularly tell us that ROSS makes for a much better experience than the old way of researching. Ultimately, the world is human, and full of human issues and questions. We think your legal research tool should be able to interact with you in the same way you interact with your peersin full sentences and complete thoughts—not words and symbols.

A: Then what do you see as the future for keyword searching and other traditional legal research methods? 

Attorneys tend to view the world in terms of black and white. You either win or you lose. You’re either guilty or you’re innocent. This of course happens with legal research methodologies as well. The attorneys at ROSS have taken a more measured approach, because we think there are still plenty of good uses for keyword search, especially when you’re not quite sure what you’re ultimate question is and want to see a bunch of cases to get the lay of the land. That’s why we’ve created a wonderful one-search bar experience, where—in the same search bar—you can search using full sentences, Boolean commands, or even good old-fashioned keyword matching without you having to toggle or select which methodology you’d like to use. ROSS understands you and brings you back what you need, regardless of how you choose to explore the law. As I said earlier, the more powerful your AI tech becomes, the simpler and more intuitive a user’s interactions with the tech should be.

ROSS pricing transparency

Q: It’s unusual for legal research platforms to clearly and openly state their pricing. Please comment on your pricing transparency and what it means for the market?

A: We make our pricing extremely transparent, because it’s affordable and we’re proud of that. $89 a month for month to month access, or $69 if you want to sign up for a year at a time. Completely unlimited use, no hidden fees. Additionally, we offer month to month pricing as well, which means our users don’t get locked into multi-year deals which we hear is something they really dislike about some of the legacy research software tools.

The future of legal research and ROSS Intelligence 

Q: I’ve been surprised to see so many research providers add brief analyzer capability in their tools, can you address if ROSS does the same?

A: With ROSS, you’re able to upload any legal documentmotion, law review article, etc.not just briefs, and then use our proprietary technology to see how other courts have agreed with, or not agreed with, different concepts you can freely designate in the document.

Q: Could the tech underlying ROSS be applied to other document collections? For example, could ROSS add value to one of LAC Group’s servicesmarket and competitive intelligence?  Will we see news service providers use ROSS or something comparable? 

A: Certainly, this is something we are continuing to explore with a variety of potential partners. As it stands, users can already upload any document into our document analyzer which can enable some really exciting possibilities our users unlock every day.

Q: There’s an explosion of new research tools, with AI and analytics everywhere. Assuming the raw data of primary law stays the same, can this keep going? May we be reaching the “end of history” in legal research? 

A: I’ve always been very leery of quoting legal scholars and authors Henry Hansmann and Reinier Kraakman, especially in light of what happened when they said we’d reached the “end of history” in terms of corporate governance law, immediately before the arrival of the great recession.

If anything, I do not think there are enough options in legal technology generally. When you consider how many amazing tools are available to folks in the financial sector or in the medical sector, I think the law needs more technology. That will of course require a cultural shift in how lawyers practice. When it comes to research in particular, it’s crazy to me that we can name all the options on one hand. I do think there will be some consolidation and that different organizations will either gain traction and accelerate or fail, but that is how innovation plays out and I’m for it.
