New Acquisitions for Thomsonís Legal Business

The Thomson Corp. announced it will acquire the Elite Information Group, Inc., a provider of integrated practice and financial management applications for legal and professional services markets. Elite will join West as part of the Thomson Legal & Regulatory market group. Elite's management team, led by Christopher K. Poole, Elite chairman and CEO, will continue to lead the business from the company's headquarters in Los Angeles. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2003.

Brian H. Hall, president and CEO of Thomson Legal & Regulatory, said the Elite acquisition will expand the Thomson strategy of providing powerful technologies and applications that complement its information services such as Westlaw and Dialog, giving customers the tools they need to make better decisions faster.

West announced it has acquired Andrews Publications from Haights Cross Communications. Located near Philadelphia, Andrews is a 30-year-old publisher of litigation reporters, newsletters, special reports, and online services. The acquisition will support West's strategy to provide litigators with "the most authoritative and comprehensive information and solutions to support their practice." This strategy was first announced in February with the launch of Westlaw Litigator, a collection of Westlaw resources that enable litigators to evaluate and prepare cases for trial. The acquisition of Andrews will enable West to develop new litigation offerings.
