We’re committed to the rule of law. Globally, LexisNexis helps the broader communities we serve and is committed to advancing the rule of law. The Rule of Law Report, is a free quarterly newsletter about rule of law-related subjects, published by LexisNexis Canada since 2018.
The Legal Brief is a newsletter focusing on some of the most topical news items and resource recommendations for handling emerging legal issues.
Emerging issue covered in the next newsletter: Moderna Inc. is now suing Pfizer and BioNTech for allegedly infringing on their patent for the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Moderna essentially alleges that Pfizer copied its chemical modification to the vaccine, and that they also copied their approach to encode their full-length spike protein. The matter is currently being litigated in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts. For more details about the lawsuit, please review the Lawyer’s Daily article below.
Probably the first thing you do when you start preparing a motion is start digging through your old files for a precedent. If you can’t find a good one there, you start asking your colleagues. But lawyers organize their files based on their clients, not based on the types of relief sought, and even if they do, their experience is that of just one person. With “Pleadings Motions and Facta” in Lexis Advance Quicklaw, just search for the relief you’re seeking and instantly find hundreds of quality court documents that have been filed in real cases. Affidavits, Draft Orders, Application Records, Notices of Action, Statements of Claim, Written Submissions, and more, are all fully keyword searchable and indexed by jurisdiction and topic. With the widest breadth of motion relief and cause of action coverage, you will be sure to find something that will shave hours off your drafting time.
Drafting isn’t the only thing that consumes time in litigation; keeping your cases, facts, issues and evidence organized and in a cogent picture can involve many hours of work, and worse yet, many of those hours are non-billable.

For the Solicitors
It’s trite to say that clients are expecting their solicitors to understand their business’ market; legal advice is business advice. The average M&A agreement has over 145 key negotiable deal points. Providing an insight as to what is standard in the market at any given time is crucial in good negotiating. Market Standards allows you to filter across thousands of publicly filed deals in the US and Canada on over 145 filterable deal points so that you go into negotiations knowing what your counterparty, and the market, is willing to bear.
