Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts selects Thomson Reuters Legal Research Solutions
Thomson Reuters has been awarded a new multi-year contract from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AO) to provide legal research solutions to the federal judiciary, building on a relationship that spans more than 30 years.
“Thomson Reuters is honored to continue our longstanding relationship with the federal judiciary, providing the legal research tools and services vital to serving their constitutional mission to provide equal justice under law,” said Susan Taylor Martin, president of the global Legal business of Thomson Reuters. “We are committed to providing our customers with unrivaled legal solutions that integrate content, expertise and technologies, and it’s especially gratifying to do so when that customer is a global standard-bearer for the rule of law.”
WestlawNext will give legal professionals in the federal judiciary access to the industry-leading legal research solution to explore and analyze matters before the bench and serve as a primary source of online legal, business news and public records information.
In addition, the momentum continues to build as Thomson Reuters has announced several additional partnerships with government entities over recent months. Thomson Reuters was awarded a multi-year agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to serve as their primary enterprise-wide provider of online legal and tax research for the IRS, providing an array of leading solutions and content from its Legal and Tax & Accounting businesses. As many as 20,000 IRS professionals across the agency’s multiple divisions will have access to WestlawNext and WestlawNext Tax augmented by integrated content from Thomson Reuters Checkpoint.
