Westlaw Offers New Corporate Litigation Package

Friday, April 1, 2005 - 01:00

The new Westlaw Corporate Litigation package recently announced by Thomson West offers resources specifically tailored to the needs of corporate attorneys who manager outside counsel in litigation or manage some aspects of litigation in-house. The increasing rate of corporate litigation, compounded by the need to control legal spending and limit corporate liability, has driven increased focus by corporations to manage their litigation and activities.

Corporate counsel have a diverse set of responsibilities that require varying levels of expertise on business, regulatory and compliance matters. In managing litigation, they require very specific tools to support their workflow.

The new corporate litigation package allows corporate attorneys to customize their Westlaw access to best support their company size, information and research needs, and the tasks they perform. With Westlaw, corporate attorneys can better manage litigation resources whether in-house or outside counsel; evaluate the merit of a claim and the potential for liability and damages; investigate key facts and figures to craft better litigation strategies; gather data needed to evaluate exposure and determine options, and find the tools, tips and strategies needed to evaluate the work of outside counsel or practice directly before the court.
