Litigation Analytical & Productivity Tools

Lexis Advance users already have integrated access to LexisNexis^® Verdict &
Settlement Analyzer. Now, three more tools join it to offer a suite of
litigation tools:

    the new tool guides users through the medical and legal information
    relevant to their case, helping them assess the value of a case and
    formulate the appropriate on-point strategy quickly, efficiently and
    cost-effectively. The MedMal Navigator ^ tool integrates up-to-date
    medical and legal content, so attorneys can understand the medicine and
    current standard of care, identify medical experts and analyze relevant
    case law.
  *LexisNexis^® Litigation Profile Suite is newly integrated and provides a
    comprehensive portrait and vital facts of key players influential to a
    case, including expert witnesses, judges or opposing counsel. A dynamic,
    graphical snapshot delivers insights derived from more than 320,000
    experts, over 100,000 full-text transcripts and more than 40,000 expert
    witness curricula vitae and resumes.
