NEW YORK -- August 13, 2013

LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology
solutions, announced today the release of version 2.6 of its Juris® accounting
and financial management software for mid-sized law firms. The central feature
of the new version is an email plugin integrating Microsoft® Outlook® with
Juris for easy access to client and matter information and streamlined time
entry within Outlook. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar add-in
for Microsoft Outlook and Time Matters® practice management software announced
in December.

“Most law firm attorneys and timekeepers literally live in email; from
discussing matters with clients – to scheduling important deadlines and
keeping track of tasks,” said Loretta Ruppert, senior director for Law Firm
Practice Management at LexisNexis. “This integration with Microsoft Outlook
puts the attorney or legal professional in control by giving them access to
the information they need without having to leave the very place where they
get their work done.”

Research supports the notion that legal professionals and timekeepers are
significantly reliant on Microsoft Outlook for managing day-to-day activities.
According to the ABA’s 2013 Law Technology Survey Report, 82 percent of all
law firms use Microsoft Outlook for email and 79.8 percent said they also use
it for calendaring. In addition, nearly 100 percent of survey respondents in
firms ranging from 10 to 100 attorneys use email to manage legal tasks.

Juris® for Microsoft® Outlook® is an add-in that sits unobtrusively on the
side of an Outlook window. The add-in automatically brings related client and
matter data, and time entry capabilities, into the place where legal
professionals work the most. Juris for Microsoft Outlook removes the hassle of
toggling between applications saving time and providing relevant matter
information.

The update also aims to make it easier to capture billable hours since it
serves as a visual reminder to timekeepers as they are communicating with
clients. In turn, this helps the timekeeper maintain compliance with the
firm’s time submission guidelines. More importantly, it allows timekeepers to
more completely capture their time and bill accurately for the legal work
performed.

Juris for Microsoft Outlook provides the ability to:

  *Automatically view details on a relevant client or matter record without
    leaving Outlook.
  *Search for specific client or matter information from within Outlook.
  *Enter billable time associated with a client or matter directly into Juris
    Suite.

The add-in works with both 2007 and 2010 editions of Microsoft Office and
requires Juris 2.6 with the Juris Time and Expense module. Juris 2.6 software
is available to existing customers with a valid support and maintenance
agreement or software subscription at no additional charge. For more
