NEW YORK, Aug 05, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Since the introduction of Lexis(R) for Microsoft(R) Office earlier this year, legal professionals are expressing excitement for this first-of-its-kind solution that integrates sources of valuable legal content directly within the trusted MicrosoftOffice desktop applications they use every day. LexisNexis has been installing the solution for a growing number of its customers since spring, and announced today that the solution is now broadly available. Early users of Lexis for Microsoft have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback.
"Lexis for Microsoft Office is a great concept. It helps save time when researching or validating briefs from opposing counsel," said George Hampton, a law firm partner who served as one of the beta testers for Lexis for Microsoft office. "In the past, you'd have to write the citations on a piece of paper and then visit Lexis.com to look each one up, one at a time. Now, you don't have to manually input citations, Lexis for Microsoft Office enables you to be self sufficient."
Created through close collaboration with thousands of customers, Lexis for Microsoft Office enables users to work more efficiently and productively, delivering greater service to clients. This is achieved by offering seamless access and management of information and services from LexisNexis(R), the open Web and designated law firm or corporate files with the click of a button without ever leaving Microsoft(R) Outlook(R), Microsoft(R) Word or Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Server.
