Westlaw, NextPage Announce Alliance

West Group ( and NextPage, Inc. ( have announced an alliance that will enable NextPage users to flexibly retrieve and display Westlaw content and services within the NextPage framework and associated Web-based applications. According to the announcement, an important element of knowledge management initiatives among leading law firms, corporations, and government agencies is the ability to have integrated access to multiple network-wide content sources. Through the West Group/NextPage alliance, researchers can efficiently retrieve documents from across their enterprise—and related content from Westlaw—all in one seamless operation.

NextPage technology enables teams of people within and among enterprises to come together virtually and interact with critical information, regardless of where the information or people physically reside. Using the NextPage Peer-to-Peer Business Network, teams can work more effectively by capitalizing on the knowledge assets, expertise, and best practices that exist in other departments or organizations. The NextPage framework provides access to a wide array of sources, such as local and remote firm document collections in Microsoft Office, Adobe PDF, Lotus Notes, and other formats, as well as third-party content, such as publishers, partners, suppliers, or customers. When NextPage users access Westlaw within this peer-to-peer architecture, results will be integrated with those from their other content sources.

This alliance also will allow users in the U.K. to have the same functionality when they use Westlaw UK from Sweet & Maxwell.
