Leading Canadian business law firm Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP (Osler) has launched a pilot program to train its litigators in decision analysis.

The innovative program will see Osler litigators trained in decision analysis techniques to evaluate risks and uncertainty in litigation, using Litigaze software.

As part of the program, Osler's lawyers will use Litigaze to:

  • create visual Litigaze plans to map out probabilistic outcomes in sample cases
  • evaluate both financial and non-financial client goals through plans
  • understand the role that decision analysis plays in helping clients make more informed litigation decisions.
"Osler has a keen interest in using technology to surface insights and solve problems for our clients. We see decision analysis as a powerful tool for helping businesses make more informed decisions in complex litigation. With its best in class software, Litigaze was the clear choice for supporting our decision analysis work," said Charles Dobson, Knowledge Management Lawyer at Osler.
"We're excited to work with Osler in helping them continue to develop new and innovative client advice capabilities based on the proven techniques of decision analysis. We hope Osler's new program will lead to it achieving even closer alignment with its clients, as we see businesses across-the-board becoming increasingly focused on making more robust data-driven decisions, including as pertains to litigation," said Len Hickey, CEO and Founder of Litigaze.
