Thomson Reuters Announces Legal Analytics API — Good News for the #FoundationNation

This week Thomson Reuters announced a new Application Programing Interface (API) for its Westlaw Edge Legal Analytics solution, enabling its data to be searched, extracted, and combined with data from internal firm systems. The synthesis of Litigation Analytics and internal data can help firms uncover insights to compete more effectively.

As big fans of silo busting, we at Foundation applaud the possibilities that the new Litigation Analytics API will provide, believing it can pay dividends for firms through more data-driven knowledge management, business development, and practice management solutions.

Foundation was delighted to be included in this week’s announcement, highlighting our partnership with Thomson Reuters. According to the press release:

For firms to take full advantage of the data through the Litigation Analytics API, collaborating with a third-party resource specializing in firm intelligence can offer further benefits. Foundation Software Group, which creates a seamless integration using their firm intelligence platform, is working closely with Thomson Reuters to combine data from Litigation Analytics with the firm’s internal information to deliver valuable insights and actionable information.”

We’re excited about Foundation’s out-of-the-box integration with Litigation Analytics made possible by the new API. And, we’d like to congratulate the team at Thomson Reuters for helping to further breakdown firm data silos.
