Kestrel and LexisNexis Announce Strategic Partnership for LexisNexis Streamline®

LexisNexis Streamline first of its kind, says Kestrel

London, 16th November, 2009 - LexisNexis, a leading practice and productivity management solutions provider, and Kestrel Business Solutions, an exclusive technology and solutions consultancy to law firms, today announced a strategic partnership between the two organisations to implement, deliver and add value to LexisNexis Streamline® in the large law segment of the legal market. LexisNexis Streamline is an innovative next generation business process management platform, tailored specifically to the needs of the legal industry.


Alex Young, Client Liaison Director at Kestrel Business Solutions, said, "LexisNexis Streamline is the first of its kind and a market challenger. Over the years, the mid to large sized law firms have invested heavily in best-of-breed applications and now in the current economic climate in particular are looking to further exploit those technologies to maximise tangible business benefits, especially in the front office. Up until now there have been limited tools available that genuinely allow firms to cost-effectively and easily build on their existing systems, and leverage the modern Microsoft-centric architecture and skills that already exist within their organisations."

LexisNexis Streamline is the only single platform that provides powerful systems integration tools including pre-built adapters for the leading best-of-breed third-party applications, flexible workflow, enterprise data modelling and innovative document assembly capabilities - all underpinned by the latest Microsoft technologies. In fact, it is the only platform on the market today that allows law firms to create a truly 'agile, connected enterprise'. Mishcon de Reya Solicitors, one of the UK's most prestigious law firms, is currently rolling out the solution.

"LexisNexis Streamline can make a real and positive difference to the way firms run their business. The market is ready for this platform and we are very excited about working with LexisNexis", Young added.

As a strategic partner for LexisNexis Streamline, Kestrel Business Solutions has successfully completed all the necessary training on the solution. Explaining the rationale for the company's selection of Kestrel Business Solutions as a partner for LexisNexis Streamline, Tim Cheadle, General Manager, LexisNexis Practice & Productivity Management, said, "Kestrel has considerable experience in delivering high quality strategic and implementation services to the legal sector, and so, like us, understands the business challenges that firms face. The combined strength of our expertise and resources will open up unprecedented opportunities for law firms, facilitating radical and ground breaking changes in the way they conduct their business. It is this common drive and motivation for product development that makes us ideal partners."

"We are delighted to have Kestrel on board. The company's reputation and credibility in the market precedes it and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial alliance", Cheadle concluded.

LexisNexis Streamline® is an enterprise level, best-of-breed, scalable, single platform for legal process workflow, offering organisations a powerful toolkit to build customised applications embodying best practice to fit their specific business needs.
