The two businesses see an opportunity to leverage best-in-class analytical and authoritative Wolters Kluwer Law & Business content; current Westlaw news content, including more than 12,000 databases of news in the Thomson Reuters Newsroom collection and exclusive reporting from Reuters News; and the market-leading primary and analytical content on Westlaw, to bring a new level of market insight to the current awareness marketplace.
Lemmond said the sweet spot for the market is the convergence of current awareness and deep primary and analytical content. “We are uniquely positioned to bring together domain expertise with specialized proprietary content, and add the insights of a seasoned team of attorney editors and analysts,” he said.
Blanchfield agreed. "The combination of Wolters Kluwer's reporting depth and domain expertise, with the breadth of Thomson Reuters news and current awareness capabilities and the insight and content of the Westlaw research service is quite powerful. For customers, it will mean a current awareness offering that promises an entirely new level of insight and foresight. We’re excited to be working together.”
