Thomson Reuters Unveils Legal Solutions Strategy

Integration, mobility and convergence of content, software and 'know-how' 
define new class of solutions 
NEW YORK and LONDON, Jan. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Thomson Reuters has unveiled its 
new product strategy for the legal market that builds upon the company's 
legacy of authoritative content, innovative technologies and customer insight 
and sets the stage for a new generation of powerful, matter-centric workflow 
tools. The company will showcase this strategy, along with a portfolio of 
innovative new workflow solutions, at the LegalTech(®) New York conference in 
late January. 
Mike Suchsland, president of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, said the 
company's legal solutions strategy is designed to support the evolving needs 
and workflows of legal professionals. "Our product development and technology 
teams spent countless hours with customers," he said. "They studied their 
workflows and pain points, and tested ideas and approaches that leveraged new 
connections between content, software and know-how tools." 
The outcome of this exhaustive process is a new class of products being 
launched at LegalTech: Thomson Reuters Concourse, the matter-based suite of 
solutions for corporate and government legal professionals; Thomson Reuters 
Firm Central, which combines research, drafting, litigation support and 
time-and-billing in a simple, intuitive dashboard for small firms; and Hosted 
Practice Technology from Thomson Reuters, providing powerful litigation tools 
in a secure, cloud-based environment. 
Thomson Reuters Concourse is a matter-based platform designed expressly for 
corporate legal departments; a companion platform also is being launched for 
government professionals. Building upon the information and workflow inherent 
in legal matters, Concourse provides an integrated suite of tools to support 
critical corporate legal functions such as legal holds, legal research and 
financial management, and also integrates productivity and collaboration tools 
such as Microsoft Outlook(®). It uses the latest social and mobile approaches 
to connect corporate counsel and outside counsel in simple and powerful new 
ways, enhancing collaboration, efficiency and effectiveness. Read more about 
Thomson Reuters Concourse. 
Thomson Reuters Firm Central is the online practice management solution for 
solo and small law firms designed to connect the people, information and tools 
that support critical firm workflows. It combines practice resources such as 
legal research, calendars, email, document drafting, matters and more with 
management resources such as time-and-billing as part of an integrated system, 
designed from the ground-up to be mobile, secure, intuitive and easily 
implemented in firm environments where law partners are often also the IT 
directors. Read more about Thomson Reuters Firm Central. 
Hosted Practice Technology from Thomson Reuters is built on the popular and 
courtroom-tested Case Notebook(TM) and Case Logistix(®) platforms. These 
secure, cloud-based tools dovetail seamlessly with the litigation workflow. 
Hosted Practice Technology gives litigators a powerful productivity advantage 
through integrated tools that facilitate case analysis, document review, 
production of case documents and easy sharing of evidence, transcripts, key 
facts and other case information, all delivered with the enhanced 
accessibility and cost-effectiveness of cloud technology. Read more about 
Hosted Practice Technology. 
"Thomson Reuters is on an exciting new path – we've created a new model for 
engaging customers, designing products and building on our legacy of service 
to the marketplace and the legal system," Suchsland said. "For customers, that 
means modern products that organize and work the way they do, providing 
seamless integration, continuity across platforms and tight coordination with 
colleagues and clients. Our new legal solutions build upon our legacy of 
authority and innovation: they are geared to the needs and priorities of 
today's legal professionals, and designed to help them be more efficient and 
effective in supporting their clients and organizations."
