New York, NY (PRWEB) December 12, 2016
LexisNexis® today announced a series of new and powerful capabilities for its Lexis® Securities Mosaic® securities research solution. Highlights include an all-new SEC filings search function that enables users to find SEC-related documents and information faster and more efficiently than ever. The additions underscore the broad investment LexisNexis is making in the critical Securities and M&A practice areas.
“Law firms and corporations desire quick, helpful access to SEC filings and related documents because as they draft their own fillings they want to see what has others have done, what has worked, what to avoid and what is standard market practice,” said Jeff Pfeifer, vice president of Product Management for the North American Research Solutions business at LexisNexis. “The new customer-driven updates to Lexis Securities Mosaic provide an even smarter way for users to explore the SEC landscape – offering greater ease of access and serving up highly relevant results that save time and enable faster, more confident decisions regarding filings.”
The core set of changes to Lexis Securities Mosaic focus on user experience enhancements and new capabilities within the SEC filings search page, search results listings and document views.
Updates to design align the look and user experience of Securities Mosaic with the other legal research solutions from LexisNexis, for a faster, more intuitive use. Functionality enhancements include a comprehensive library of more than 130 predefined searches that enable users to get a jump start on searches with fast access to highly utilized topics such as spin-offs, exchange offers, cybersecurity disclosure, and many other topics and transactions. Additionally, SEC comment letters and company correspondence are now built directly into search results to help users quickly and accurately draft filings guided by previous SEC comments. New post search filters also help users more accurately refine results to see precisely the documents and information relevant to their needs.
While LexisNexis has updated the look and added new tools, it has also retained all previous search functionality to ensure users have the same search options they have come to use and value.
Other new features to Securities Mosaic include expanded segment searching to help users pinpoint information within specific filing types, a “View More Hits” option to evaluate search results, a “Direct Batch Download” tool for faster downloading of selected documents, easier access to the popular Redline Tool to compare changes in documents, and speedier identification of and navigation through all references in a document with updates to the Reference Retriever tool.
“The new enhancements to Lexis Securities Mosaic are the most recent example of our continued expansion and investment in the important and growing Securities and M&A practice areas,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, managing director of North American Research Solutions at LexisNexis. “Along with our recent acquisition of Intelligize, a leading SEC analytics intelligence tool, these enhancements demonstrate our commitment to addressing our customers’ need to quickly and more efficiently sort through the complex body of securities and transactional precedents.”
