London, 19 October, 2009 - The LexisNexis Practice & Productivity Management User Conference 2009, held on 8th October 2009 at the BMA House on Tavistock Square in Central London, was a resounding success.

A packed full-day event, it offered a combination of over 25 informative presentations and interactive sessions on pressing business issues in the legal, corporate and public sectors, customer case studies, existing product roadmaps, and new product offerings. The company announced the launch of LexisNexis Streamline, its next generation business process management solution and the only single platform on the market today that allows law firms to create a truly 'agile, connected enterprise'.

LexisNexis also unveiled its first ever 'VISION' Awards for customers to acknowledge their partnership with the company and recognise their innovative use of technology to spearhead ground breaking changes in the way they conduct their business.

The keynote address titled 'Preparing for the Economic Recovery' was delivered by Anthony Holmes, an international corporate turnaround specialist and transitional leadership expert.
