LexisNexis Teams With Matterhorn To Offer Merger Data And Analytics Tool To Legal Dealmakers

LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced an agreement with Matterhorn Transactions, Inc. to offer its web-based transaction analysis tool, Matterhorn, to legal professionals. Matterhorn provides unparalleled capabilities to search for and compare the market terms of mergers and acquisitions as well as other types of transactions. Designed to assist legal and financial professionals negotiating and structuring deals, the tool will be called Lexis ® Market Tracker and will be introduced in spring of 2013 as a component of Lexis® Practice Advisor.

Lexis Market Tracker will leverage Matterhorn’s proprietary software, extensive database of agreements and unique data enhancement capabilities to provide legal professionals with the ability to quickly and easily search, find and compare similar deals, so they can confidently draft documents based on the latest deal information.

“Insight into current market trends is vital for legal professionals structuring and negotiating financial transactions,” said Suzanne Petren Moritz, vice president and managing director for Lexis Practice Advisor. “Coupling Matterhorn’s reliable access to transactional data and deep analytical capabilities with the practical guidance offering from LexisNexis will provide attorneys with both the expertise and information needed to achieve better outcomes for their clients and organizations.”

“Matterhorn is very good news for dealmakers who prize efficiency and reliability and are focused on adding value through strategic insight and negotiation skill,” said Don Carlson, Chief Executive Officer of Matterhorn. “Our agreement with LexisNexis will put crucial insights and extensive objective data at the fingertips of legal professionals handling financial transactions. It will inform their advice, support their negotiations and help them draft documents that best represent the interests of their clients.”

As part of the agreement, LexisNexis becomes the exclusive reseller of the Matterhorn tool in the legal market. The Lexis Practice Advisor offering currently includes ‘Business Law,’ launched in January 2012, ‘Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy,’ launched in May 2012, and ‘California,’ launched in August 2012. A 'Corporate Counsel' module will be introduced in November 2012, followed by ‘Securities & Capital Markets’ and ‘Mergers & Acquisitions’ in spring of 2013.
