Burr & Forman LLP is a full-service law firm with nearly 300 attorneys and offices in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. Burr & Forman offers a wide range of business and litigation services to diverse clients with local, national and international interests.
Business Situation: In 2012, the firm initiated a review of its online legal research providers and set out to restructure its contracts. In working with LexisNexis, the partners sought to bundle a variety of LexisNexis® research tools and services including Lexis® for Microsoft Office®, Lexis® Search Advantage and CourtLink®, in a way that would enable them to obtain the latest legal research technology within the most cost-effective pricing model.
Solution: The firm’s partners and knowledge services professionals met with a LexisNexis representative who demonstrated Lexis for Microsoft Office version 4.0 with Document Tools, an exclusive offering from LexisNexis that leverages the seamless integration of LexisNexis legal research content and the open Web with Microsoft Office applications attorneys use every day. A few senior litigation partners were immediately struck by the potential of this new offering and directed the law firm library team to include Lexis for Microsoft Office 4.0 with Document Tools in its new bundled agreement.
