LexisNexis Middle East & North Africa announced the launch of the new Lexis Middle East platform, its online database providing access to case law, legislation and expert commentary in English for Middle East jurisdictions.
Lexis Middle East provides a wide range of carefully selected legislation and regulations from official gazette releases in English and Arabic, as well as decrees, cases, commentaries, topical articles and an exhaustive list of Q&A solutions, that are updated regularly, allowing subscribers to be at the forefront of what is happening in the legal industry. Drawn from over 300 regional sources, Lexis Middle East is updated on a daily basis ensuring that lawyers and in-house counsel are kept informed of the latest legal news and developments
The new version of Lexis Middle East is built on a state-of-the-art technological frame with an advanced search engine which allows a dramatic improvement of search relevancy and the introduction of many new features such as:
• Instant Refresh, a new type of filters that instantaneously update the search result list when they are modified;
• Fast Track, a new way to access known documents in a single click;
• Drill Down, a feature to get a focused preview of a document without leaving the search result list;
• Dynamic Table of Content, a table of content that allows users to immediately understand where they are in a document when they browse it.
“The new Lexis Middle East platform has been designed from scratch to dramatically increase the efficiency and convenience of legal research. Its performance and features will define a new standard in the region,” asserts Guillaume Deroubaix, CEO of LexisNexis MENA.
This launch will enhance LexisNexis MENA efforts to make sure that Lexis Middle East remains the ultimate legal research tool in the region: more than 2000 pages of new regulatory material, over 2500 cases and an abundance of practical content, covering 16 areas of legal practice across 13 jurisdictions will be added to the platform in 2019.
