Addressing the Growing Demand for Class Action Lawsuits

Darrow’s AI-based data engine addresses the growing demand for class action lawsuits by providing lawyers with a proactive approach to finding and developing new cases to pursue. By ingesting and analyzing thousands of publicly-available sources, such as newsfeeds, social media, and regulatory complaints, Darrow’s platform connects the dots between data and evidence of legal violations, providing insights into potential litigation outcomes and their value.

Darrow aims to change this perception by enabling lawyers, regardless of their size, to identify and fight for impactful cases. The startup’s mission is to be the go-to platform for law firms, connecting them with cases that align with their values and have the potential for significant societal impact. Despite focusing initially on lawyers, Darrow also plans to incorporate individuals into its long-term vision, creating a portal for them to find relevant data and report their own experiences.
