More than 1,500 legal organizations have already purchased Westlaw Edge in its first 15 weeks on the market, as legal professionals seek the benefits of delivering superior client value through advanced artificial intelligence technology.

“We’ve seen an overwhelming response for Westlaw Edge from law firms, major banks, insurance companies and key court systems,” said Mike Dahn, senior vice president of Westlaw Product Management. “We’re hearing from customers that the new insights provided by Westlaw Edge can affect litigation outcomes, and firms don’t want to be at a disadvantage in court. One of the biggest reasons for Westlaw Edge’s rapid adoption is that we’re offering litigation analytics across a far greater number of state and federal dockets than other providers. Additionally, the exclusive new warnings for bad law have been extremely well received.”

Westlaw Edge, the new version of Westlaw, incorporates state-of-the-art AI, helping legal professionals complete work faster while avoiding costly mistakes.

“We signed on immediately,” said Jake Courtney, partner at prestigious plaintiff’s firm Girardi | Keese. “Westlaw Edge takes us forward, and we always want to be at the forefront of the legal profession. You’ve got to have the best product to go with the best people to make sure you’re always right. It’s a small investment for a big return on a big case.”

Shawn Mitkowski, CIO at award-winning IP firm, Sterne Kessler, commented, “Our clients are interested in how we internally drive innovation through the utilization of technologies. We are integrating the advanced AI capabilities of Westlaw Edge into our everyday workflow process to deliver relevant information when our attorneys need it.”

Westlaw Edge is being used by major firms including Locke Lord and Shearman & Sterling, among others, and will be used by all law students beginning in January 2019.
