LexisNexis® Announces Launch of Generative AI Platform, Lexis+® AI™
On May 4, LexisNexis® announced the launch of Lexis+® AI™, a generative AI platform designed to transform legal work. Lexis+ AI is built and trained on the largest repository of accurate and exclusive legal content, leveraging an extensive collection of documents and records to provide customers with trusted, comprehensive legal results with unmatched speed and precision and backed by verifiable, citable authority.
The new Lexis+ AI technology features conversational search, insightful summarization, and intelligent legal drafting 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 summarization 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.
“We’re thrilled to bring this transformative technology to customers,” said Mike Walsh, CEO of LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “The Lexis+ AI platform provides first-of-its-kind tools for lawyers to dramatically improve the speed, quality, and effectiveness of their practice and business.”
Customer-driven innovation is core to the company’s research and product development, and LexisNexis is taking a customer-first approach to the generative AI technology journey as well. LexisNexis is teaming up with leading Am Law 50 firms, such as Baker McKenzie™, Reed Smith® and Foley & Lardner, LLP™, as part of its early Commercial Preview Program to tap into their expertise for advice and feedback.
“We are supporting the research and development of generative AI across the industry,” said David Cunningham, Chief Innovation Officer, Reed Smith. “LexisNexis is a key content provider, so their roadmap will be closely watched and will define many firms’ on-ramp to GPT-based research.”
“LexisNexis has been leveraging artificial intelligence technology, including natural language processing and large language models, in its legal solutions for years, and we’ve been using generative AI in our research and development labs for more than a year,” said Jeff Reihl, Chief Technology Officer, LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “As a leader in legal AI and analytics, we are best positioned to serve as firms’ trusted partner in launching professional-grade, legal generative AI tools.”
