LexisNexis and Solcara Announce Search Partnership for Law Firms

LexisNexis and Solcara will deliver an integrated search service to the legal market

London, 24 February, 2010 - LexisNexis today announces a partnership with Solcara, to deliver an integrated search service to the legal market. The service will enable law firms to utilise LexisNexis' knowledge and expertise to deliver tailored sets of LexisNexis content through Solcara's integrated search solutions.


Modern law firms now give their lawyers access to multiple internal and external information resources, each with their own interfaces that users need to understand.  It is critical for lawyers to access the right information quickly, accurately and intuitively.  This new service draws on LexisNexis' legal information management experience, to deliver tailored LexisNexis content within Solcara's search platform. 

Simon Drane, Director of Business Development, Legal and Tax Intelligence at LexisNexis, said:  "Lawyers often need a quick answer but don't always know where to start their search. We are excited by the way in which Solcara can offer quick answers from multiple sources through federated searches, giving lawyers a simple way to access the deep research materials within LexisLibrary, the practical guidance from LexisPSL, or broader content from our many other offerings. By working alongside Solcara we are confident we can give customers the simple access they often need, increase the quality of the content they have access to and that through our experienced consultants we can do this in a way which is tailored to individual customer requirements."

Rob Martin, Managing Director, Solcara, commented on the partnership with LexisNexis: "We are delighted to be working more closely with such a prestigious organisation as LexisNexis. The strengthening of the partnership will ensure that the Solcara SolSearch solution will more effectively integrate LexisLibrary content with a firm's other online and internal information resources. The result will be an even more efficient, effective and integrated search solution, putting the firm in control of how their users access and search all essential information resources. In the next few months we will be working with LexisNexis to further extend the reach of our integrated search solutions with deeper levels of integration to other LexisNexis content services."
