LexisNexis announces the start of a UK commercial preview of Lexis+ AI

LexisNexisLexisNexis has announced the launch of the UK commercial preview of Lexis+ AI, a generative AI solution designed to transform legal work.  Grounded in the largest repository of accurate and exclusive legal content, Lexis+ AI combines the power of generative AI with proprietary LexisNexis search technology and authoritative content.  Results are always backed by verifiable, citable authority or source.

Lexis+ AI technology features conversational search, insightful summarisation, intelligent legal drafting capabilities and document upload capabilities, all supported by state-of-the-art encryption and privacy technology to keep sensitive data secure.

  • Conversational search simplifies the complex and time-consuming legal research journey, providing a search experience for diverse legal questions with citations, facilitating lawyers’ ability to complete research effectively and efficiently.
  • Enhanced summarisation provides a custom summary of legal documents to speed up and guide insightful analysis.
  • Generative document drafting guides customers throughout the legal drafting process, generating a first draft of a legal document, and allowing users to change the language and tone from a simple prompt.
  • Document upload capabilities enable users to rapidly analyse, summarise, and extract key insights from legal documents.

“We’re thrilled to bring this transformative technology to our UK customers,” said Gerry Duffy, MD of LexisNexis UK. “The Lexis+ AI solution is a proven first-of-its-kind tool for lawyers and will dramatically improve the speed, quality, and effectiveness of their practice and business.  We have taken a customer-first approach to all our innovation, research and product development.”
