Aug 24, 2011

First Android OS App Offered by LexisNexis Provides Legal Professionals with Litigation Analysis and Assessment Capabilities On-the-Go

The new CourtLink® application for Android offers legal professionals access to relevant court docket notifications where and when they need it. The application will initially be available exclusively on Samsung devices, rolling out to all Android devices after a certain period of time.

The release of the CourtLink application for Android marks the latest addition to the growing portfolio of mobile applications from LexisNexis® that includes: Get Cases and Shepardize®, Lexis® Advance for Solos, LexisNexis® Legal News, as well as the recently launched mobile services for Time Matters®, LexisNexis® Lead Alert and PCLaw®. The launch of these and other applications are part of a broad LexisNexis mobile strategy that focuses on offering attorneys across different sectors of the legal market solutions that match the way they work in today's mobile business environment.

"Our research told us that tablets and smartphones were overtaking sales of desktops among attorneys, so clearly our customers need applications designed for those devices," said Michele Vivona, Senior Vice President of Global Web Strategy for LexisNexis. "We are continuously collaborating with our customers in the legal market to provide them with what they want and need - mobile applications that give them the ability to conveniently take on time-sensitive and discrete tasks while out of the office."

LexisNexis CourtLink helps attorneys drive new business opportunities and create successful litigation strategies. With its collection of court dockets and documents, it is a powerful resource for analysing and assessing litigation landscapes and providing notification of new case activity. Mobile access to the CourtLink service allows attorneys to review newly filed cases to determine their relevance to clients. In addition, attorneys are able to gain instant insight into their tracked active litigation.

"LexisNexis customers said they needed a dependable way to stay on top of new opportunities, manage caseloads and offer better client service," said Vivona. "CourtLink® Mobile provides attorneys critical court case information as well as alerts and tracking tools where and when they need them most, resulting in a real competitive business advantage."

Key benefits of the CourtLink mobile app include:

Ability to respond to new opportunities: Early notification when a prospect or client is involved in litigation; ability to stay aware of opportunities in order to offer legal services or begin early case assessment.
Prepare cases more effectively: Monitor developments and parties relevant to case strategy.

"Joining forces with LexisNexis is an exciting opportunity for Samsung and represents a remarkable collaboration between leaders in the technology and innovation fields," said Jongshin Kim, Vice President of Enterprise Solution Group, Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics. "We are thrilled to have worked with LexisNexis on the launch of their first legal mobile app for Android and are confident attorneys using Samsung devices such as Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab are delighted to have CourtLink® along with Samsung enterprise-ready solutions."
