Interactive dashboard aggregates key facts, topics and issues from legal sources, practice-specific content and data-driven analytics to quickly deliver highly relevant results


NEW YORK – LexisNexis Legal & Professional®, a leading global provider of information and analytics, today announced the upcoming availability of Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder, a powerful, practice-specific feature that empowers legal professionals to build legal strategies centered around the facts, issues and topics of their case. The new offering supports and is tuned to six practice areas – Personal Injury, Labor & Employment, Insurance, Real Estate, Intellectual Property, and Business & Commercial – with additional practice areas planned.

Developed using feedback from more than 1,000 customer interactions, Fact & Issue Finder is designed from the ground up to mimic the exact processes that legal professionals perform when researching their cases. It then greatly enhances the research experience with the use of state-of-the-art search and machine learning technologies, streamlined workflows and data visualizations.

By inputting facts, issues and topics about a case, Fact & Issue Finder gathers relevant content – including case law, practical guidance, verdicts and settlements, expert witness analytics, and unique practice specific content – all from a single search that is designed to deliver results with every interaction.

The aggregated information is displayed via an interactive dashboard that enables users to conduct extensive research on cases whose facts, issues and topics are the most similar to theirs. In doing so, Fact & Issue Finder reduces the countless hours and burden associated with having to research, compile and review data from numerous sources individually.

“Our customers asked us to help them cut through an overwhelming amount of information for every legal matter, minimize the number of searches, sources and applications they require to complete increasingly complex legal research tasks, and give them confidence that they did not miss any crucial information that would impact their case,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, CEO of LexisNexis North America, UK and Ireland. “Put simply, litigators want to find ‘cases like mine.’ We’ve built a litigation solution that places all of the relevant information they need at their fingertips, wrapped in a highly intuitive and visual user experience.”

Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder is the only research solution on the market geared toward fact and issue specificity in litigation. Key features include:

  • Case Graph: Visually presents a case’s entire life cycle, displaying its dockets, pleadings, motions, briefs, verdicts and settlements, and cited statutes and making them available with a single click.
  • Expert Advisory Content: Increases knowledge about practice-specific issues from LexisNexis’ Practical Guidance, administrative resources, and exclusive content from Elsevier for medical, insurance, real estate, HR and IP-related sources.
  • Integrated Data and Analytics: Uses Verdicts & Settlements data to reveal trends in similar cases so attorneys can better understand the potential value of their cases, then finds expert witnesses who participated in those cases and have experience with the same facts, topics, and issues as those in their case.

“Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder is designed to help litigators find highly relevant information aligned to specifics of a case,” said Jeff Pfeifer, Chief Product Officer, LexisNexis North America and UK. “Our goal is to supply litigators with highly curated results while alleviating the common fear of not knowing when it’s appropriate to stop researching.”

Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder will be available in Lexis+ for subscribers starting September 1, 2022. Additional content may be necessary to power all feature capabilities.
