LexisNexis Legal & Professional®, a leading global provider of legal information and analytics, announced today that Irwin Mitchell, one of the largest general practice law firms in the UK has selected Lexis+ AI to support its lawyers with legal research and drafting.

Technological innovation is key to unlocking Irwin Mitchell’s ambitious strategy to offer a market-leading client experience. As a long-term customer of LexisNexis’ practical guidance and legal research content, Irwin Mitchell is familiar with the high-value legal content and innovative search technologies available in Lexis+. Introducing Lexis+ AI to their legal tech stack will bring unrivalled speed and efficiency to legal research and drafting.

“As we embark on our digital transformation journey, we wanted to partner with an organisation we knew and trusted. We wanted an AI solution that would allow our lawyers to add more value to our clients through an efficient and frictionless client experience” said Eleanor Windsor, Partner, Director of Knowledge Management, at Irwin Mitchell. “We selected Lexis+ AI as it is the most advanced legally-trained AI solution on the market. It will enable us to maximise the value of the legal intelligence we already access from LexisNexis.”

With Lexis+ AI, lawyers at Irwin Mitchell are evolving their legal workflow, through improved legal research, in four key, transformative ways. Lexis+ AI’s conversational search will enable them to ask legal questions as they would to a trusted colleague, with cited and linked answers. With case law summarisation, from a simple request, Lexis+ AI will offer Irwin Mitchell’s lawyers first-draft contract clauses and client communications, enabling them to devote more time to issues most important to their clients. The ability to securely upload firm documents and ask questions, analyse, and summarise will enable the team to extract key insights in moments – offering significant time savings.

A November 2023 survey of early users of Lexis+ AI in the USA saw 74% estimating that they would save 7 hours a week on legal research and 80% estimating a saving of 6 hours a week on legal drafting. “We want to be at the forefront of technology that delivers better client services,” Windsor continued. “Lexis+ AI brings next-generation workflow management, speed, and efficiency into the core of our firm.”

“We’re delighted to be supporting Irwin Mitchell’s innovation strategy. The firm offers a superb example of how merging cutting-edge technology with legal insight and human know-how can bring real value to both clients and their lawyers,” said Gerry Duffy, Managing Director, LexisNexis UK & Ireland. “For all businesses, embracing new technology can be challenging. But doing so is essential and AI opens up a wealth of potential. We are excited to partner with Irwin Mitchell and help them to deliver a world-class customer experience.”
