Nicole Clark is the Founder and CEO of Trellis Research Inc. Nicole is a Litigator and practiced a lot at the state court level doing employment and class action work. She couldn’t believe how difficult it was to get information at the state court level. Often, Nicole was an associate tasked with anecdotes and making strategic decisions – it blew her away that they were making strategic recommendations based on anecdata when there is a ton of data on the judges. She talked about the gap-in-data with some software developer friends to start mining data from the courts she appeared in most often. It was a game-changer in her practice and was so valuable to her. It gave her the courage to jump from practicing to bring Trellis to other litigators because having that data was a huge competitive advantage as a state court practitioner.
