LexisNexis Acquires Verilaw Technologies

LexisNexis, a member of the Reed Elsevier Group, has acquired Verilaw Technologies, Inc. and its electronic court filing and attorney-to-attorney document exchange services. Verilaw previously also provided court management systems, but that business has been separated from the e-filing business and was not acquired by LexisNexis.

With the addition of the Verilaw customer base, LexisNexis will now have a strong national presence of e-filing with courts and law firms in 25 states, including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, and the Carolinas. It also generates momentum for courts and law firms in other states to adopt a service provider model of e-filing and e-service projects. The companies say the addition of the Verilaw services will enable LexisNexis to accelerate the growth of e-serve usage, which already covers a base of thousands of law firms and tens of thousands of attorneys across the country.

Verilaw co-founders Amdur and Joe Helfrich and chief technology officer Joe Klimowicz will continue with the company after acquisition. The acquired business will become part of the LexisNexis File & Serve unit and report to Michele Vivona, chief operating officer, LexisNexis Applied Discovery and LexisNexis CourtLink.
