About practice insight

Practice Insight was founded by Thomas Haines, Patent Attorney and software engineer, in Australia in 2010. Prior to joining the intellectual property profession, Thomas developed software for some of the world’s leading technology companies, including Apple and Microsoft.

As an IP lawyer, Thomas faced the same challenges as his colleagues around the world: the preparation for meetings and conferences was extremely time consuming and cumbersome. He needed a tool that would help him to spend more time winning new business and serving his existing clients; and less time extracting massive data sets from various websites, that still needed a lot of work to be able to extract any useful insight. Not to mention about filling out time sheets manually when billing clients for his time.

There are many types of products in the market but none of them matched Thomas’ requirement to pull together information to an easy to use format. Hence Thomas decided to develop his own software tools to meet these challenges.

Although the tools were not originally developed with grand commercial aspirations in mind, on providing an informal demonstration at a conference in 2009, the demand to license the software suite commercially rapidly grew by referral. Since those humble beginnings, the Practice Insight team has grown significantly, but its simple philosophy – of building software that makes people’s lives easier has remained as the central pillar of all our engineering efforts.

Today many of the world’s best-known corporations and law firms benefit from Thomas Haines’ ideas. Practice Insight and our products Filing Analytics and WiseTime help customers to get to grips with Big Data. We give them access to easy to use software and analysis tools, with which they can extract the data they need in just a few minutes. The reports come in user friendly formats and can be used as they are to make informed decisions with increased efficiency as well as significant time and cost savings.
