Clearbrief Enhances Legal Writing with LexisNexis Integration

In a significant move to streamline legal document drafting, Clearbrief, an AI-powered legal writing platform, announced its integration with LexisNexis at Legalweek 2024. This strategic partnership marks a significant step in enhancing legal research and writing efficiency for lawyers.

New Integration for Enhanced Legal Research

The integration, now available to current customers of both Clearbrief and LexisNexis, allows legal professionals to access comprehensive legal content and linked citations from LexisNexis directly within the Clearbrief Microsoft Word add-in. This feature aims to simplify the legal drafting process by enabling seamless research and referencing.

Responding to Customer Demand

Clearbrief CEO Jacqueline Schafer explained the move as a response to customer needs, particularly from large law firms. “Our clients in Big Law and the Am Law 100 have been requesting this feature to maintain their workflow in Lexis while utilizing Clearbrief,” Schafer stated in a recent interview.

Advanced Features for Document Accuracy

One key feature of Clearbrief is its ability to analyze and validate the accuracy of case references in legal documents, assigning a color-coded score for reliability. With LexisNexis integration, users can easily conduct further research in response to lower scores, ensuring the accuracy and credibility of their documents.

A Response to Evolving Legal Standards

Schafer highlighted the growing importance of such tools in the legal industry, citing new bar opinions and court mandates that require thorough verification of legal documents. Clearbrief aims to simplify this process, ensuring compliance and accuracy.

Continuing a Trend of Strategic Integrations

Clearbrief’s partnership with LexisNexis follows a series of integrations with other legal technology platforms, including Relativity, iManage, Clio, and Fastcase/vLex. These collaborations were driven by client feedback and demands. Schafer emphasized the startup’s customer-focused approach to choosing integrations.
