LexisNexisLexisNexis can now offer Exari solutions to legal professionals in the United Kingdom

LexisNexis UK, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the expansion of their strategic relationship with Exari. Already using Exari technology to power Lexis Smart (online automated software) products, LexisNexis UK will now offer Exari’s innovative DocGen™ document generation solution to its customers. LexisNexis will be the exclusive distributor of Exari’s document generation technology to UK law firms.

“We are seeing a shift in the demands of the legal industry, it isn’t about the technology, it’s what you do with it that counts,” said Nigel Rea, Director of Precedents and Drafting at LexisNexis UK. “We know that the automation model is broken – lawyers are faced with the daunting task of becoming document automators. We aim to remove this pain through our new model managed service which, utilizing our partnership with Exari, allows lawyers to get the full value from their automation on day one. Our expert team of Knowledge Engineers and Knowledge Architects will work alongside our customers’ teams to offer innovative revenue-generating solutions for their clients. We are thrilled to be a part of this innovation and growth in the legal industry.”

The traditional contract drafting process is time consuming, error prone and lacks an efficient automated process. Content analytics and legal automation are on the rise, and innovations through technology in the legal field are already improving internal efficiency by producing more accurate contracts and reducing turnaround times.

The expansion of the partnership means that LexisNexis customers now have a solution that increases drafting efficiency by up to 80% while empowering junior lawyers to produce high quality documents and contracts. Utilizing Exari’s DocGen™ technology to power the automation of precedents available to clients increases productivity, accuracy and profitability. These solutions free up lawyers to spend more time doing what they are best at – practicing law in a specialist, human and accessible way.

“Our partnership with LexisNexis is already changing the way law professionals are drafting agreements”, said Geoff Maskell, Managing Director of Exari Europe. “60 percent of the top 50 law firms are using document generation in some form today. There is a tremendous opportunity for firms to use technology to improve their competitive position. The combination of Exari’s technology with LexisNexis content and platforms makes it easy for firms to reduce costs and provide the highest quality product for their clients.”

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
