Bankruptcy Case Search
Finding and monitoring bankruptcy cases across 94 US court districts is a notoriously slow and expensive process. Most bankruptcy management teams use PACER—Public Access to Court Electronic Records—a government website providing access to information and case filing for federal court records.
The PACER Problem
Bankruptcy teams that rely on PACER typically use a single credential to log in to the website, regardless of the number of users. Organizations waste from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars monthly downloading the same case information across different departments—and getting charged by PACER each time. Cost allocation becomes nearly impossible.
Some bankruptcy teams have abandoned PACER for third-party solutions, receiving incomplete and delayed court docket data. Teams must then refresh or “hot-update” out-of-date data and retrieve documents (easily found in our solution)—all while increasing costs and time to manage the bankrupt account.
Interacting with PACER is a major challenge:
- Many bankruptcy teams use a single PACER credential across an entire team
- In most cases, only one case can be viewed at a time
- PACER’s cost structure re-charges you for previously accessed data and documents
- Filing documents require credentials in each court jurisdiction
LCI’s powerful Bankruptcy Case Search module is a PACER replacement providing full access into LCI’s proprietary bankruptcy database, which is updated nightly with complete docket event information from all 94 US court districts. Each user receives individual credentials for easy reporting and cost allocation, and the cost structure eliminates duplicative charges. With an extensive user base and community-based pricing model, users can view documents downloaded by other users at a reduced rate, and never pay for the same data twice.
- The only solution on the market to update every bankruptcy case and docket event every day
- Fast, simple, and more efficient than PACER
- Intuitive and easy to learn—10 minutes of training or less
- Saves 35-50% over PACER fees, even more when bundled with other products
