Not all legal disputes are created equal. The subset of lawsuits that proceed to trial and adjudication are characteristically different from those that are resolved through settlement.
In order to reach a courtroom and obtain a judgment, disputes must first survive the settlement bargaining process and resist the economic forces that might ordinarily encourage or compel a negotiated solution.
Having been filtered along economic lines, it should come as no surprise that the disputes that fail to settle have a tell-tale economic fingerprint. The Litigation Settlement Failure Index is that fingerprint.
LSF Index is the first-ever legal metric to serve as a quantitative early-warning indicator of trial-bound disputes.
