      Manage Risk
      It helps ensure that anything that is sent to clients or to court or is created for internal use (knowhow) is accurate, even if fee-earners are using free sites.

      Save Money and Increase Productivity
      Citation Checking allows your fee earners to focus on client work by giving them the reassurance that any document ‘Lexischecked’ by more junior members of their team will be fully accurate. This means that both your clients and your firm benefit from using Citation Checking: your clients save money as they are billed for a smaller number of work hours, while your fee earners are able to get through other client work, thus increasing productivity and generating higher revenue for the firm.

      Access point to Cases and Legislation for Accurate Research
      As well as providing a quick way of checking documents, Citation Checking is a simple way of linking to core content within LexisLibrary from Word, by simply typing in a reference (a word, a case), and hitting the Citation Checking toolbar. Extremely useful for trainees as a quick access point to cases and legislation, the link feature also works directly from within your PDF or web content.

      Best Practice
      With fee earners under so much pressure to concentrate on clients’ tasks, sparing time to train junior lawyers or trainees can be a real challenge. Citation Checking helps ensure that junior lawyers build an awareness of the importance of checking the accuracy and reliability of content, especially web content.

      With Citation Checking, your fee earners can delegate some of the background work to more junior lawyers.
