“Keeping current on the latest developments in the law, the legal industry or a particular practice is a natural part of every legal professional’s daily workflow and is essential for providing timely and informative client counsel and effective business development initiatives,” said Eric Wright, CEO LexisNexis Canada. “Law360 provides legal practitioners with the single best source for all of their legal news needs, and Lexis+ delivers it when, where, and how they need it most.”
With the rebrand, Law360 Canada becomes the third edition of the global legal news authority, joining the United States and United Kingdom editions in reaching a global audience of more than 2.5 million readers daily. With nearly 40 years of prestige publishing experience, the new Law360 Canada will serve as a local platform to report on the country’s critical legal news and coverage as it happens across 14 practice areas.
“The decision to rebrand The Lawyer’s Daily as Law360 Canada reflects our commitment to expand our premium legal news offering world-wide while still maintaining the local, on-the-ground reporting and expert analysis that our readers in each market expect,” said Rachel Travers, Vice President and General Manager, Law360. “Law360 Canada strengthens our position in legal news in North America and serves as an exciting addition to our expanding global network.”
