Thomson Reuters today unveiled Practice Point – an innovative solution that delivers the most relevant content and tools for a given task or legal issue. It leverages key content, expertise and technology from Practical Law and Westlaw in an entirely new manner through task-based organization and editor-selected content.

Practice Point was developed with the help of extensive research and feedback from practicing attorneys and in-house counsel. It is specifically designed for attorneys whose practice primarily involves advising, negotiating, drafting legal documents, and ensuring that business dealings comply with relevant statutes and regulations.

Practice Point is uniquely organized with menus arranged by practice area, task or project, to make it easier for attorneys to find exactly what they need. Its task-based organization draws content from the best of Westlaw and Practical Law that is specifically selected by expert attorney-editors. This ensures the most relevant information is most prominent, giving users the confidence that they are getting the most complete and relevant information for every task.

“Practice Point is another great example of innovating workflow solutions that leverage our unique content, tools and deep legal expertise in entirely new ways to help an important group of customers,” said Emily Colbert, vice president, Global Workflow Solutions, Thomson Reuters. “Practice Point is designed to be the touch point for your practice or legal department, directing you to the precise resources needed. The result is legal guidance, research and know-how, plus time-saving tools – all conveniently integrated into one solution and organized to provide greater time savings and ease of use. It provides another proof point for the Thomson Reuters approach to innovating for our customers by creating products that work like they do.”

Practice Point offers a truly integrated experience, allowing users to seamlessly access both Westlaw and Practical Law, placing information at their fingertips without the need to switch back and forth between the solutions. Practical Law content forms one of the cores of the Practice Point experience, providing users with access to thousands of up-to-date, practical know-how resources to manage their matter, including practice notes, standard documents and clauses, checklists, and toolkits, created and regularly updated by Practical Law attorney-editors. Practice Point also delivers Westlaw authoritative primary law, exclusive analytical materials, practice area insights, secondary sources, forms, and more.
