LexisNexis to Retire lexis.com Service, Upgrade Customers to Lexis Advance Legal Information Solution Over Next 12 Months
Change offers legal customers more content, greater mobility, access to leading analytic tools and a faster, more intuitive product experience
December 19, 2016 — NEW YORK—LexisNexis®announced today that it will retire its legacy online legal research service, lexis.com® and upgrade U.S. legal professionals to the company’s Lexis Advance® solution.
“We are proud of what we have offered legal and business professionals through lexis.com over the past two decades,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, managing director of North American Research Solutions at LexisNexis. “Lexis Advance is an innovative legal information solution offering with an impressive array of content, current awareness, analytics and decision tools. The time is right to retire lexis.com and open up the significant advantages of Lexis Advance to all of our customers.”
Launched in 1997, lexis.com is considered by many to be the original comprehensive online legal research service. Maintaining its role as a pioneer in the field, LexisNexis launched its next generation legal information solution, Lexis Advance, several years ago. Since then, the company has continually enhanced the product by integrating its comprehensive, trusted collection of legal, news, business and public records content and by adding analytical tools and access to new solutions not available on lexis.com.
“By kicking off this process now, lexis.com customers will have adequate lead time before their upgrade,” said Jeff Pfeifer, vice president of product management at North American Legal Research Solutions at LexisNexis. “Throughout the next 12 months we will work closely with lexis.com customers so they are fully aware of what’s changing and when, understand who their contacts are and what resources are available, and to ensure they are trained on Lexis Advance.”
lexis.com users moving to Lexis Advance will have access to more content and enjoy seamless integration with powerful analytic, visualization and practical guidance tools—all via a modern and mobile technology platform. Lexis Advance features easy source selection, a patent-pending search term mapping feature and extended history display so users reach relevant results faster.
Additionally, new Lexis Advance users will see enhanced functionality for tools and resources they are familiar with on lexis.com. For example, compared to lexis.com, Lexis Advance offers:
- Expanded Shepard’s® Citations previews and validation tools
- A wider selection of alerts with streamlined management
- Easy to use work folders and links to maximize sharing and collaboration with colleagues
- Advanced data analytics and visualization capabilities
