LexisNexis extends analytics offerings to finance


As a litigation attorney, I never had to sift through hundreds of contracts to put together the correct market language for Clause 58 (c) (6) (iii) (⏁), but it sounded awful. Say what you want when trying to guess the meaning of 10 years of easily distinguishable opinions, but better to spend all night on it. On the other hand, transaction attorneys are much more marketable in the backend, so … maybe it would have been worth it.

Thankfully, there are now plenty of tools out there that can make deals less of an exercise in drudgery. We’ve already talked about the fact that not all contract lifecycle products are created equal. So there is no silver bullet for solving all contract problems, but rather a combination of tools that enable a remarkably efficient closing process.

And another tool in this market was released today with the announcement of LexisNexis Market Standards – Finance, a new solution for “researching and comparing current and relevant transactions, finding precedents and clauses, and scoring specific deal points for a more thorough one Document”.

The steady path of analytics continues.
