WordRake Holdings, LLC announces a partnership with LexisNexis® Legal & Professional to bring WordRake® professional editing software into the newly-released Lexis® Draft Pro legal drafting and review software suite. Lexis® Draft Pro is the first comprehensive legal-market solution to integrate advanced technology and legal content to streamline proofreading, reduce risk, and improve the quality of all legal documents.
Extensive market research by LexisNexis® found that 85% of legal practitioners relied on technology to boost their efficiency and streamline important daily tasks, like writing (Lexis® Drafting Survey, 2014). To aid lawyers and other legal professionals with the great amount of writing they must do every day, LexisNexis® Pacific selected WordRake editing software as one of the advanced tools to include in the Lexis® Draft Pro toolkit.
“WordRake is honored to have been chosen by industry leader LexisNexis for the Lexis Draft Pro partnership,” says Scott Johns, Chief Operating Officer of WordRake. “Designed by lawyer and writing expert Gary Kinder, WordRake provides helpful editing suggestions to give lawyers more confidence as they write and proofread briefs, memoranda, contracts, and emails.”
Glenn Cooksley, Head of Drafting at LexisNexis® Pacific, says, “Lexis Draft Pro builds upon analytical software developed by LexisNexis and Microsoft to deliver solutions for busy lawyers. We looked all over the world for the finest software we could incorporate into this new product, and we are proud to include WordRake in this select group for its unique ability to edit for clarity and brevity. With the introduction of WordRake to Lexis Draft Pro, we have expanded the toolkit’s functionality to help lawyers dramatically improve the quality of legal documents.”
