A cloud-based, legal business collaboration tool for corporate and in-house lawyers

AUCKLAND, August 3, 2018 – LexisNexis, a leading provider of content and technology solutions for the legal industry, announced today they have partnered with LawVu to deliver a cloud-based, matter management tool that combines operations and business processes in one platform.

LawVu’s legal operations platform connects outside counsel, internal clients and third parties and enables them to track matter assignments, progress and billing in a straightforward process, creating a cohesive framework within in-house legal departments.

LawVu brings technology components that often require cross-functional interaction from legal, IT, finance and management – such as matter management to contract management lifecycle to e-billing – into a single legal operations software stack that provides legal departments with a complete system.

“LawVu is a New Zealand-based, best of breed technology that delivers real value to our customers. It made sense that they become part of the LexisNexis partner solution family. Their innovative approach to system collaboration brings substantial benefit to the in-house and corporate lawyer market,” said Stephen a’Court, Head of Sales & Marketing of LexisNexis NZ Ltd.

Sam Kidd, LawVu CEO, said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with a trusted global brand like LexisNexis. It’s a tremendous validation of the pioneering work we’ve done in building a legal operations platform. We’re excited to be working with LexisNexis and sharing the experience in the industry they bring to the table when it comes to delivering legal technology to the marketplace.”

LawVu, available this month, is a standalone product within the Legal Software Solutions product line of LexisNexis. Some key benefits include:

  • Matter forms to triage and track internal legal issues and instruct outside counsel
  • Collaborate seamlessly to solve legal issues with internal stakeholders, outside counsel and other third parties
  • Live dashboards and status reports enables users to analyse data to spot trends to make better decisions
