I am a small Law Firm, why should I choose Westlaw?

Westlaw has always been your partner in legal technology, but with the launch of the new Westlaw you can now completely shift the burden of looking for and analysing legal information to a smarter, faster system of algorithms, allowing you to spend more time delivering actual legal expertise to the client or matter at hand.

If you are a small or boutique-sized law firm, Westlaw delivers unprecedented functional value. Clients are now tech-savvy and have access to the same internet as your firm, and expect you to deliver answers faster and better than they can themselves. The new Westlaw delivers small law firms a robust knowledge work solution that enables you to search the way you think. Once you find your authoritative source through one search (not multiple) you can then better interpret the answer. The platform helps your fee earners or staff narrow down findings, dramatically reducing response time.

Our core subscription ensures your firm has everything it needs to engage in meaningful, efficient and simple knowledge work. Outside of the core subscription, you can directly purchase specialist or niche content directly from search results, or simply add-on subscription bundles by Practice Area.

The new Westlaw is a solution for the small law firm that values staying competitive and working smarter. Want to know more? We're here to help

I am a current Westlaw customer. What does this mean for my current subscription?

The new Westlaw is a completely new and separate offering to the existing Westlaw. As such, your existing subscription is not at all impacted by the new Westlaw. To subscribe to the new Westlaw, simply contact your Thomson Reuters Account Manager.

How does pay-per-view work?

Pay-per-view (PPV) is a new feature where users will be able to search for content outside of their new Westlaw subscription. Via PPV, users will be able to make one-off purchases for content they don't subscribe to. For example: precedent documents. All PPV purchasing and pricing options are available to users within the new Westlaw platform.
