2015 in Review: LexisNexis Legal Software and Tech Updates

by | Dec 21, 2015

Year in Review LexisNexis Legal Software and Tech Updates

Over the course of several years, LexisNexis has been building out a Technology Center of Excellence.  The site, and corresponding business division, is led by Mike Lipps (@lexismike) and seated on the campus of NC State University.

What began as roughly hundred employees in the town of Cary, just a few miles away from our current location, now counts some 450 legal tech professionals.  Late last year, LexisNexis folded the litigation software team and managed technology services group into a single cohesive division dedicated to building world-class legal technology.

Armed with a philosophy, a Legal Software Bill of Rights, we’d like to believe we’ve come a long way towards that goal.  Many of the enhancements and updates released this year focus on those principles:  ease-of-use, click-savings and integrations.

Here’s a look at some of the significant announcements charting that progress we published over the course of the year.
