Lexis+ AI delivers secure generative AI tools grounded in LexisNexis’ unrivalled legal content to fuel efficiency, effectiveness, and reliable results for lawyers

London – 11th January, 2024 – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of legal information and analytics, today announced the launch of the UK and Canadian commercial preview of Lexis+® AI, a generative AI solution designed to transform legal work.  Grounded in the largest repository of accurate and exclusive legal content, Lexis+ AI combines the power of generative AI with proprietary LexisNexis search technology and authoritative content.  Results are always backed by verifiable, citable authority or source.  Lexis+ AI is now generally available in the USA, following a successful commercial preview in 2023.

Lexis+ AI technology features conversational search, insightful summarisation, intelligent legal drafting capabilities and document upload capabilities, all supported by state-of-the-art encryption and privacy technology to keep sensitive data secure.

Conversational search simplifies the complex and time-consuming legal research journey, providing a search experience for diverse legal questions with citations, facilitating lawyers’ ability to complete research effectively and efficiently.

Enhanced summarisation provides a custom summary of legal documents to speed up and guide insightful analysis.

Generative document drafting guides customers throughout the legal drafting process, generating a first draft of a legal document, and allowing users to change the language and tone from a simple prompt.

Document upload capabilities enable users to rapidly analyse, summarise, and extract key insights from legal documents.

“We’re thrilled to bring this transformative technology to our UK customers,” said Gerry Duffy, MD of LexisNexis UK. “The Lexis+ AI solution is a proven first-of-its-kind tool for lawyers and will dramatically improve the speed, quality, and effectiveness of their practice and business.  We have taken a customer-first approach to all our innovation, research and product development.”

LexisNexis is teaming up with leading law firms, such as Eversheds Sutherland (International), Macfarlanes, Pinsent Masons and CMS UK, as part of its commercial preview program to tap into their expertise for advice and feedback.

“We are supporting the research and development of generative AI across the industry,” said Rachel Broquard, Service Excellence Partner at Eversheds Sutherland (International). “LexisNexis is a key content provider, so its roadmap will be closely watched as many firms’ on-ramp to generative AI-based research.”

“LexisNexis has been leveraging artificial intelligence technology, including natural language processing and large language models, in our legal solutions for years, and we’ve been using generative AI in our research and development labs for more than two years,” said Jeff Reihl, Chief Technology Officer, LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “As a leader in legal AI and analytics, we are well positioned to serve as firms’ trusted partner in launching professional-grade, legal generative AI tools.”
