ALM “Best of” awards are chosen by the various publications’ readers and other working professionals in the legal industry. The LexisNexis® Public Records service received its first win of 2018 from The National Law Journal, and was recognized in the following eight reader ranking surveys across 2017:

“When it comes to finding details on an individual entity, having a modern, extensive public records resource is crucial, as it can be unpredictable where or when a person or business will leave a footprint,” said Jeff Pfeifer, vice president of product management at LexisNexis. “These awards acknowledge the massive data collection, sophisticated reporting capabilities and flexible searching found within LexisNexis Public Records—all of which combine to provide researchers with the most complete picture of people and businesses.”
LexisNexis has one of the largest databases of public and proprietary information available on the market today. With over 78 billion records, the service aggregates data from more than 10,000 sources, including public, private, regulated, emerging and derived data. The collection also includes over 10.6 billion unique name and address records, 5.6 billion property records and 68 million business contact records.
Integrated with the Lexis Advance® service, the advanced Public Records technology automatically accounts for typographical errors, seamlessly searches for aliases and applies more than 200 analytic flags to warn of suspicious behavior, irregularities and to determine “most likely” contact information. Users can also access other tools such as Social Media Locator, which analyzes hundreds of social networking sites and millions of websites, including the deep web, to match and build its results.
Industry acknowledgement of LexisNexis Public Records as a ‘must-have resource’ joins many other company awards and accolades, including the recent Legal AI Leader awards from The National Law Journal for both the Lexis AnswersTM service on Lexis Advance and the Lex Machina® Legal Analytics® platform.
