LexisNexis® Winner Of 2023 LegalTech Breakthrough Award For “Overall Legal Spend Management Solution Of The Year”

Prestigious Annual Awards Program Recognizes Companies and Products Driving Innovation in the Global Legal Industry

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LegalTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout legal technology companies, products and services around the globe, today announced that LexisNexis®, a leading global provider of information and analytics, is the recipient of the “Overall Legal Spend Management Solution Of The Year” award in the 4th annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program.

LexisNexis® CounselLink® provides financial management reporting and dashboards for an executive-level overview into legal and matter spend, savings and trends. With quick and easy drill-down capabilities, customers can see the macro or more detailed views of year-over-year legal spend, firms, matters, and practice areas that are driving costs. In addition, users can look at budget and tracking reserves and recoveries, percentage of outside counsel spent hourly versus AFA, and more.

SmartReview®, CounselLink’s advanced AI billing tool, reviews each line-item invoice charge for compliance with the customer's billing guidelines and automatically adjusts or flags errors. This invoice review improves billing accuracy and speeds up the process with automated workflows configured to the customer’s internal processes. It can also review and adjust invoice charges, support multi-currency invoicing, and easily audit multiple invoices for a single matter.

Customers can also capture 100% of spend by converting non-LEDES-format invoices into electronic invoices. Non-CounselLink invoice reviewers in the workflow can also be integrated through SSO or two-factor authentication, with optional permissions to review, adjust, or add notes to invoices.

With CounselLink Insight, customers take advantage of a benchmarking database and analysis tool that helps enable smarter negotiations, better decision making, and maintain tighter control over legal costs.

“More than ever, corporate law departments are looking to make informed decisions and improve performance and outcomes. It's imperative to manage costs. Thank you to LegalTech Breakthrough for the ‘Overall Legal Spend Management Solution of the Year’ award,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, CEO, LexisNexis North America, UK & Ireland. “We will continue to strive to improve our solutions to help our corporate legal customers manage growing pressure, spend, and complexity. By helping the legal community understand where costs are rising fastest, our tools can help them successfully navigate what’s to come.”

The mission of the annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions and products in the legal technology industry today. This year’s program attracted more than 1,500 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.

“CounselLink from LexisNexis is a complete financial management solution that helps customers gain absolute control of every penny spent. In the face of rising outside costs, corporate legal departments are facing increasing pressure to do more with less and they need the right tools to control costs,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. “CounselLink delivers these tools in an innovative way by supporting AFAs, budgeting, allocations, and most importantly, billing compliance.
