LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, has launched its latest innovative legal solution Lexis+, an AI-powered legal knowledge platform.

Lexis+® unites legal research, guidance on the law and enhanced analytical tools – all packaged in a modern user experience to deliver greater efficiency, increased confidence, and better outcomes for Australian lawyer’s clients.

Since 2016 LexisNexis has been leveraging developments in technology, including building on their Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to power Search as well as new experiences such as helping their customers find alternate drafting when preparing documents (Lexis Clause Intelligence) and empowering customers to construct more persuasive arguments by unearthing deep insights from their content (Lexis Argument Analyser).

The introduction of Lexis+ provides an opportunity to present a fully integrated experience of all LexisNexis products and content offerings to help streamline customer workflow, reduce the cognitive load of switching applications as well as the platform that will enable a generative AI solution in 2024.

LexisNexis worked with more than 2,000 customers worldwide to understand how Legal Practitioners work.

Lexis+ is differentiated from Lexis Advance, not only by its upgraded, simpler to use integrated interface and streamlined workflows but also by its wealth of helpful beginning-to-end experiences that minimise context switching, save time and, therefore money as well as surfacing key insights to help mitigate the risk of missing something important.

Streamlining the lawyer’s research experience frees up their time to do the things that really matter, like fostering client relationships, growing expertise and delivering better client outcomes.

Based on extensive customer feedback, Lexis+ addresses the specific needs of legal professionals in all segments, industries, and areas of practice with key features including:
