LexisNexis Announces Lexis for Microsoft Office

LexisNexis ( announced Lexis for Microsoft Office, a new set of research capabilities that will enable legal professionals to access content and services from LexisNexis and other sources while operating directly within Microsoft Office applications. Legal professionals can now find, analyze, and act upon legal content while working within Microsoft Office Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.

Input from hundreds of customers and other legal professionals shaped the development of Lexis for Microsoft Office, which was specifically designed to address their need to work more efficiently and productively so that they could ultimately serve clients better. Customers can now access vital information from the LexisNexis services and the open web, as well as designated law firm or corporate files in one place and with the click of a button-eliminating time- and energy-intense searches across disparate sources and applications.

The background feature provides information on "entities" such as people, companies, organizations, and cases mentioned in the text of a Word document or Outlook message. It automatically indexes the working document with hyperlinks to relevant information from internal, LexisNexis, and web resources. Upon clicking the hyperlink, the information is displayed in a side pane within the Microsoft Office applications. The background feature will also display full Shepard's reports and apply Shepard's Signal indicators directly to the cases cited within the text of the document.

Lexis for Microsoft Office is in beta testing now and will launch for Microsoft Office 2007 in spring 2010. It will be available with Microsoft Office 2010. To access and use these capabilities, users will require a current LexisNexis subscription.
