LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com),
a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced
that its CourtLink® service now offers hourly alerts on newly filed
federal cases - making it the only court docket service to offer hourly
alerts in all US District courts, along with the complaint document with
highlighted user keywords.
"Since the economic downturn, law firms have been facing increasingly
tougher competition to connect with prospects and clients quickly when
important court actions occur so they can be assigned to the case," said
Eliana Ferreira, director of product planning for dockets, briefs,
pleadings and motions at LexisNexis Legal & Professional. "CourtLink
hourly alerts considerably increase lawyers' chances of earning business
and keeping clients by giving them the fastest access to new case
filings so they can act before their competitors."
LexisNexis® CourtLink® connects lawyers and other legal professionals to
the industry's largest, most comprehensive collection of U.S. federal
and state court dockets, including content from all federal district
courts ranging from 1989 to the present.
According to results of the ABA 2011 Legal Technology Survey report,
more than two-thirds of lawyers in the largest U.S. law firms check
their case alert services at least every day. The new, customizable CourtLink
hourly alerts exceed this demand by delivering alerts for all U.S.
District court civil cases every hour. Further, users can enhance their
alerts with keywords found in the case complaints to highlight cases of
interest. This unique feature is designed to help eliminate the need to
retrieve and pay for unnecessary case filings.
"Adding to speed of delivery, CourtLink hourly alerts further help
lawyers respond effectively to potential business because there are no
limitations on the number of 'Natures of Suit' or courts that can be
included. Additionally, there are no restrictions on the ability to
share alerts regardless of whether colleagues have access to CourtLink,"
All CourtLink alerts are offered via the CourtLink service, as well as
mobile applications for iPhone®, iPad® and Android? devices. There
are no additional charges for using mobile versions.
