The Thomson Corporation has announced that it has acquired LiveNote Technologies, a leading provider of transcript and evidence management software to litigators and court reporters.

LiveNote, based in San Francisco, will be aligned with Thomson West, and is seen as a powerful complement to West's suite of litigation solutions. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Peter Warwick, president and chief executive officer of West, said LiveNote strengthens West's leadership position and accelerates the company's growth trajectory in the litigation market.

LiveNote and Westlaw Litigator are the critical building blocks in West's strategy to launch a truly integrated litigation platform.
