Foley & Lardner—LexisNexis® Digital Library Case Study

Foley & Lardner—LexisNexis® Digital Library Case Study

Customer Profile: Foley is a full-service law firm with more than 900 lawyers on staff with strengths in practice areas such as business law, government and public policy, intellectual property, international law, and litigation. These attorneys serve clients across more than 49 distinct practice areas and within 12 major-industry sectors. The firm is repeatedly recognized as a leader in client service.

Business Situation: Foley sought a long-term solution for management of their library resources that would maximize the content they purchase from publishers, increase accessibility and mobility of titles through a diversity of channels, free up library staff to provide more value-added service, and to reduce overall costs.

Solution: The firm centralized its library collection and services and implemented a digital library solution that makes the firm’s library available as eBooks. With the effort, Foley has begun to experience benefits such as:

  • Firm attorneys have more access to and mobility with the library collection
  • Savings on print inventory
  • Library staff spends less time managing titles and more time supporting firm attorneys
