LOS ANGELES. November 15, 2022. — LegalTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout legal technology companies, products and services around the world, today announced that vLex, a cloud-based global legal information subscription platform, has been selected as “Overall Legal Research Solution Provider of the Year” in the third annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program. In 2021, the company was recognized with the “Virtual Legal Assistant Solution of the Year” award for Vincent, the cross-jurisdictional research assistant that uses machine learning algorithms to combine human search behaviour with machine speed to produce highly relevant search results, in a matter of seconds.

Millions of legal professionals worldwide use vLex to remove limitations when searching across documents from different countries and jurisdictions. vLex’s award-winning, AI-powered technology connects and enriches documents with useful information, which enhances research and improves productivity. Uniquely, vLex publishes both reported and unreported content while aggregating legal documents from thousands of authoritative sources, helping the user stay up to date with all changes to the law, not just reported cases.

Additionally, vLex offers unlimited search results for all users. Regardless of their level of access, all users can browse through search results from vLex’s entire database of over 120 million documents, which is updated daily. vLex has also added indexed content from other providers, including Westlaw and Lexis. This enables users to search across additional content and link directly to a document if they have an existing subscription with one of the 100 providers whose content is indexed. This significantly reduces the risk of important information being missed.

Meanwhile, vLex provides links between cases, citations and legal documents across jurisdictions to help legal professionals seamlessly navigate the law and identify binding and persuasive cases with ease. vLex is also the only provider that allows a user to search for and access case law, legislation, dockets, journals, books, news, commentary, and more, from over 100 countries, all on one service.

Users can also search in their own preferred way, with an autocomplete search bar, advanced search with boolean options, or an intuitive and easy-to-navigate browsing tool. Lastly, vLex helps to identify the most cited passages of a judgment to illuminate where and how those sections have been most subsequently cited.

“We are honoured to receive this recognition from LegalTech Breakthrough. At vLex, the design of legal research solutions has taken a user-led approach to provide an entirely new research experience. With many ‘big players’ in the legal research sector, we are the only service pioneering a cross-jurisdictional and holistic approach to research, while driving new experiences supported by intelligent technology that practitioners can adopt globally, at any level,” said Lluis Faus, Co-Founder & CEO at vLex. “This award recognises our commitment to providing legal research solutions that genuinely support the user, resolve issues faced by practitioners worldwide, and provide an entirely new, intuitive and easily accessible research experience.”

The mission of the annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions and products in the legal technology industry today. This year’s program attracted more than 1,450 nominations from over 12 different countries across the world.

“Legal research solutions are typically available in most jurisdictions, whether a local government library or a collection of legal cases from one of many providers. However, legal research requires more than just an online library and access to legal documents from more than one jurisdiction. Comprehensive legal research is only possible when you have access to all relevant information, as missing something can have serious repercussions to a case and client,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. “vLex provides a first-class and comprehensive service for thousands of lawyers, law firms, governments, and law schools globally. Their technology and bespoke integration tools help millions of users find information faster and stay up to date with the law. That makes them our 2022 ‘Overall Legal Research Solution Provider of the Year’ award winner.”

Trusted by over 6,500 international firms and with two million registered users, vLex provides access to an extensive collection of legal information from over 130 jurisdictions.
