Legal intelligence provider recognised for innovation, authority, and understanding the needs of law firms.

LexisNexis UK today announced that it has been named Supplier of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2012.  The awards recognise excellence, success and advances within the legal world, and are judged by a panel of independent experts from the profession including former senior partners, in-house counsel, journalists and academics.

LexisNexis was recognised for its ability to measurably improve the performance of its customers through its Lexis®Legal intelligence portfolio. In a recent case study, law firm Andrew & Co estimated that across the board they saved around 15% on research time, which converts directly to fee-earning. The Practice Compliance module freed up 40 to 50% of their compliance officer’s time and this worked out to roughly £20,000 of savings a year. Lexis®PSL has also helped Andrew & Co save in less obvious ways, too. By using LexisNexis professional development webinars, their lawyers train without leaving their desks. So they’re spending around 25% less time out of the office on training courses, and up to 25% less on travel.

Julie Bailey, Andrew & Co LLP managing partner, explained: “We’re not only leaner but we now have access to much more information and support than ever before. So we’re in a much stronger position both to look after our clients and make better profits. By consolidating all our information services with LexisNexis, we immediately trimmed 10% off our annual spend.”

Christian Fleck, LexisNexis UK managing director, commented: “I am delighted that we have been named supplier of the year at the British Legal Awards. These prestigious awards recognise excellence and this is exactly what we aim for by way of delivering measurable value to our customers. During 2012 we completed the LexisPSL product suite, which is an excellent example for how we support law firms in driving productivity and efficiency. We have involved our customers every step of the way and I would like to thank everyone who participated in helping us become Supplier of the Year to the legal market.”

LexisPSL provides lawyers with a single destination for their practical legal information needs with direct links to the relevant cases, legislation, precedents, forms, practical guidance and expert commentary at their fingertips. Lexis®Library is the market leading solution for deep research of legal information involving a vast range of authoritative legal commentaries, handbooks, journals, legislation and cases.  Lexis®Learning ensures CPD compliance by keeping lawyers up to date up on the latest developments in their field of legal expertise.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
