Fastcase Expands Libraries with Expert Treatises from Wolters Kluwer
Expert Guidance from Wolters Kluwer Now Available to Fastcase Subscribers
Washington, DC and New York, NY (January 23, 2018) – Today Fastcase has announced a partnership with Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. to provide an expanded collection of treatises, handbooks, and other secondary sources to legal researchers through the Fastcase platform.
Starting today, Fastcase will include more than 125 titles from Wolters Kluwer, in a broad array of legal specialties such as bankruptcy, construction law, consumer finance, elder law, employment, family law, health law, litigation, insurance, pension and benefits, real estate, and many more. These sources of expert guidance, written by some of the nation’s most trusted authors, will be fully integrated for purchase in the Fastcase system and searchable using Fastcase’s innovative research tools.
“Wolters Kluwer publications are premiere resources with market-leading authors, and Fastcase has access to more than 800,000 attorneys, mostly from smaller firms that can be difficult to reach. Our customers continuously ask us for practical guidance, forms, and expert insights. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide them such high quality resources and that Wolters Kluwer entrusted us with their publications,” said Steve Errick, Chief Operating Officer of Fastcase.
Dean Sonderegger, Vice President and General Manager of Legal Markets, Innovation at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. noted that the licensing agreement provides an effective distribution channel for Wolters Kluwer to reach more legal professionals in the small law segment. “As a rising innovator in the space, Fastcase was the clear choice and we’re pleased that our titles and expert authors will receive even greater exposure and reach more professionals.”
“Lawyers trust Fastcase as a powerful way to find the law,” said Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase. “Now, with the launch of our publishing arm Full Court Press, our integration of the expert commentary of more than 15,000 legal bloggers in the LexBlog network, and our partnership with Wolters Kluwer, Fastcase will be an essential source for legal news and expert guidance as well. These libraries from Wolters Kluwer are some of the most comprehensive and authoritative in the world, and we couldn’t be more proud to partner with them to share that guidance with our very sophisticated subscribers.”
The agreement to provide the Wolters Kluwer content extends a partnership that began when Fastcase purchased legal research provider Loislaw from Wolters Kluwer in 2015, but this agreement includes titles that were not available for sale in Loislaw. In addition, lawyers in firms smaller than 10 lawyers can subscribe to and use the treatises right in the Fastcase application. Firms of 10 or more will still purchase access through Wolters Kluwer.
Fastcase users will see the new treatises in search libraries immediately. For more assistance with including the new secondary materials, users can contact customer support at 1-866-77-FASTCASE (866.773.2782). Those without a Fastcase subscription can try the new integration by signing up for a free trial at www.fastcase.com.
