Josef & Lexis Nexis Get It On

Lawyers Weekly Australia report

Global legal content platform LexisNexis and Australian-founded legal tech start-up Josef are teaming up to streamline access to the former’s content library.

The partnership – which will see Josef and LexisNexis join forces to streamline how legal and compliance professionals access LexisNexis’ global content library – involves the provision of templates for guided workflows and reporting for LexisNexis customers.

Using natural language prompts in a chat-style tool, the two companies said in a statement, the pilot program will save users time and allow them to more easily access relevant information to meet their needs.

The collaboration will augment, the statement continued, how users retrieve content through an integration that offers an alternative method of querying the content library, delivering workflow efficiencies, heightened transparency and actionable insights.

This integration will commence with the LexisNexis Regulatory Compliance solution.

Speaking about the new partnership, LexisNexis Pacific managing director Greg Dickason said that Josef represents the innovative technology that LexisNexis has always embraced.

“LexisNexis has continually been innovating in this space for over 50 years, adopting and pioneering new technology ensuring that our content is optimised and highly accessible. Our partnership with Josef makes sense to us as we work with emerging no-code solution providers,” he said.

“We believe in experimenting and learning with customers to ensure we deliver the best solutions possible. Working with innovative providers like Josef and others helps deliver our market leading content through new methods.”

Josef co-founder Tom Dreyfus added that LexisNexis has long been “the benchmark” for legal content, and the start-up is looking forward to being able to help it deliver content to its clients in “new and frictionless ways”.

“This partnership is something that we are proud to have embarked on, combining one of the most recognised brands in the industry with our technology platform,” he proclaimed.

The new partnership follows the launch of Lexis Create, which aims to make legal drafting easier. It also follows Josef’s expansion into the United States last month, as well as its expansion into the UK and Europe in September of last year.
