LexisNexis Acquires Sanction Solutions
LexisNexis Legal & Professional announced that it acquired Sanction Solutions. Sanction litigation presentation software provides litigators a single resource to quickly assemble documents, exhibits, transcripts, questions, visuals, and video that will be used to manage and present evidence throughout litigation, categorize them, and then create clear, polished and compelling presentation materials necessary for building a case.
The addition of Sanction to LexisNexis expands the company’s diverse suite of litigation products and services to create an unmatched end-to-end solution set for litigators—spanning early case assessment, e-discovery processing and review, case analysis, transcript management and now presentation.
“We’re excited to bring Sanction Solutions into the diverse lineup of software products that LexisNexis offers litigators. Not only will it help them easily prepare and present crucial evidence,” said Matt Gillis, vice president and managing director for Litigation Tools & Professional Services at LexisNexis, “but Sanction further extends our presence in the litigation workflow—reinforcing LexisNexis as the comprehensive and integrated end-to-end provider of litigation solutions.”
Because Sanction delivers services throughout the litigation workflow, particularly for case assessment, planning, and presentation, it will be integrated with the LexisNexis CaseMap suite that contains the CaseMap, TextMap, and TimeMap tools. Sanction software also integrates with several industry-recognized third-party applications and utilizes Microsoft databases to make projects easily portable. Sanction will continue to be offered as a stand-alone product.
The acquisition of Sanction Solutions is part of the continuing LexisNexis commitment to provide industry-leading litigation support software and services that help customers increase productivity and achieve better outcomes for their organizations and clients. Other components of the LexisNexis litigation offering include LexisNexis Early Data Analyzer to narrow down huge sets of data, LAW PreDiscovery to identify relevant information and documents for discovery and review, Concordance for e-discovery review and the CaseMap suite for case assessment, planning, reporting and other important strategic functions of case preparation. LexisNexis also offers enterprise and on-demand hosted litigation solutions for customers seeking to increase their data capacity, decrease data management costs or ensure data security.
Headquartered in Phoenix, Sanction Solutions was founded in 1999 and is a division of Esquire Deposition Solutions LLC.
