The CaseMap software helps litigation teams bring together the relevant facts, documents, cast of characters and issues of each case – as well as legal and investigative research – into a centralized repository for improved case assessment.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) August 12, 2015
LexisNexis® Legal & Professional today announced the launch of a new version of the CaseMap® solution, the company’s award-winning case analysis software, which is now fully integrated with the Lexis Advance® legal information service. This new integration provides users of the CaseMap software with one-click access to a wide range of valuable content and insights from Lexis Advance, the dynamic, next generation legal information product, delivering impressive time savings and improved workflow.
“CaseMap users will love this integration with Lexis Advance because it enables them to seamlessly bring together the crucial legal and factual research they need for a winning case,” said Steve Ashbacher, vice president of litigation solutions with LexisNexis Legal Software Solutions. “It also saves our customers significant time as litigation team members no longer have to toggle back and forth between their case analysis software and their online legal research service.”
With this new release and a LexisNexis® research subscription, the entire breadth of the LexisNexis research content is available directly from within CaseMap. This empowers users to do the following:
- Research both legal issues and facts in federal and state cases and save this information directly to a firm’s CaseMap files;
- Validate their findings by leveraging the Shepard’s® Citations Service;
- Locate and research expert witnesses with access to extensive testimony and deposition history;
- Conduct fact witness research and run background checks;
- Retrieve LexisNexis® Company Dossier reports on more than 80 million U.S. and international companies;
- Conduct due diligence with access to federal and state court dockets and documents;
- Research jury verdicts and settlements;
- Uncover real and personal property owned by individuals, businesses or other legal entities such as trusts; and
- Review profiles of judges, opposing counsel and other litigation professionals.
The CaseMap software helps litigation teams bring together the relevant facts, documents, cast of characters and issues of each case – as well as legal and investigative research – into a centralized repository for improved case assessment. This allows users to maximize case knowledge, see connections they might otherwise miss and better collaborate with their colleagues on a matter.
“With this tight integration of CaseMap and Lexis Advance, litigation teams can now use the CaseMap software as their end-to-end case management platform and build their cases from start to finish,” said Ashbacher. “We bring our customers all of the information they need, when they need it and when they are thinking about it. This saves them time, helps them stay on track and enables them to spend more time on strategy, rather than collecting information.”
The CaseMap software suite has won more than 50 legal industry awards for its innovative use of technology that helps litigators better manage their cases.
