Research services for law

The information needs in today’s legal industry have become more varied and complex. While case law and other legal research remains a mission-critical need, medium-to-large law firms are facing new information demands:

  • Competitive and market intelligence
  • Subject matter expertise
  • Regulatory compliance across multiple levels and locations
  • Current awareness, emerging developments and trends

A more competitive legal landscape and cost-recovery obstacles have resulted in limited support staff and leaner operations overall, compelling more firms and legal departments to turn to alternative solutions like LAC Group’s research and intelligence services.

Research services for business

When your information needs outstrip your information resources, turn to LAC Group for support. We allow you to select the service level that meets your financial and operational needs, from a little help to managing it for you:

  • Competitive and market intelligence research and analysis
  • Copyright and other intellectual property research
  • M&A due diligence and other financial research
  • Regulatory and legislative research
  • Social media research

Many corporations arm their employees with an internet connection and Google, expecting them to do much of their own research, but that has limitations: Google doesn’t always reveal the most timely or reliable information, and internet research can quickly lead to productivity-draining activities and leave company IT resources vulnerable to malware and other risks. LAC Group offers trusted, reliable support for all your information needs.

  • Methodical literature searches
  • Metadata creation and management to enhance information access and discovery
  • Citation metrics and other bibliometrics analysis
