Viewing Attorney Data in the Public Dataset
When you log in to Juristat, by default, you're viewing the public data in Juristat's database (for more information on the public vs. private datasets, click here). In the public database, there are a few ways to obtain information about the individual attorney on an application.
While in table view, you can use the Attorney filter from the left-hand filter bank.
To analyze attorney data for firms and assignees in Intelligence view, click the breakdown of work option.
You can also search for an attorney using Juristat's omnisearch box. As you enter the name of an attorney, results will populate under the Attorneys section.
Viewing Attorney Data with Private PAIR Integration
If your organization has Private PAIR integration with Juristat, you can also view information about individual attorneys by switching into your organization's private PAIR instance. Once in the private pair instance, you can search for an attorney's data in the same ways you would in the public dataset, provided that the attorney has prosecuted applications in the set of Private PAIR data you have access to.
Another way to get a data set of applications an individual attorney is working on is by importing them. You can either copy and paste that list of application or publication numbers into the application or publication number filter, or use the "Import" feature to upload the list as a .csv.
Once you've either filtered to or uploaded your list of applications, click the save button to save your search in order to re-run it and update the data at any time.
Attorney Attribution and Historical Data
We associate an individual attorney with an application based on the attorney signature block on the most recent substantive filing in the prosecution. Please note, this means that each application is associated with only one attorney, even if multiple attorneys may be working on the same application.
Lastly, we’ve prioritized collecting attorney data for the past 3-4 years in order to provide an accurate picture of recent prosecutions. Older applications may not be included in an individual attorney’s data.
