Lexis+ AI delivers secure generative AI tools that fuel efficiency, effectiveness, and reliable results for lawyers

Toronto, ON – January 11, 2024 LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of information and analytics, today announced the launch of the Canadian and UK commercial preview of Lexis+ AI™, a generative AI solution designed to transform legal work. Grounded in our extensive repository of accurate and exclusive Canadian law content and use cases, Lexis+ AI combines the power of generative AI with proprietary LexisNexis search technology that seamlessly navigates both English and French legal content. Results are always backed by verifiable, citable authority. Lexis+ AI is now generally available in the U.S., following a successful commercial preview in 2023.

Lexis+ AI technology features conversational search, insightful summarization, intelligent legal drafting, and document upload capabilities, all supported by state-of-the-art encryption and privacy technology to keep sensitive data secure. Conversational search simplifies the complex and time-consuming legal research process, offering a user-friendly search experience for various legal inquiries complete with citations. This empowers lawyers to conduct research effectively and efficiently. Enhanced summarization provides a custom summary of legal documents, expediting and guiding insightful analysis. Generative document drafting guides customers throughout the legal drafting process, automatically generating an initial draft based on user prompts. This innovative feature allows users to easily modify the language and tone to suit their needs. Additionally, document upload capabilities allow for rapid analysis, summarization, and extraction of key insights from legal documents.

“We’re thrilled to bring this transformative technology to customers,” said Eric Wright, CEO of LexisNexis Legal & Professional Canada. “The Lexis+ AI solution provides first-of-its-kind tools for Canadian lawyers that take advantage of our extensive, high-quality content to dramatically improve the speed, quality, and effectiveness of their practice and business.”

Specifically tailored for Canadian legal professionals, the Lexis+ AI offering will support interactions in both English and French that will allow users across the country access to Halsbury’s® Laws of Canada, the only up-to-date national legal encyclopedia, Juris Classeur®, the only French civil law encyclopedia in Canada as well as unique and exclusive English and French commentary, Pleadings, Motions and Facta court documents and practical guidance.
