Rely on Lexum to increase the value of your data
Our combined team of paralegals and software engineers is constantly processing legal information for a wide range of clients and use cases. We have extensive experience when it comes to transforming and enhancing large volumes of legal documents in a short time frame. We can support your organization on one occasion, or on a permanent basis
We can assist you at all steps of your publishing process
Transform unstructured data into structured information
We turn paper-based archives into searchable databases. In addition to scanning and running optical character recognition (OCR), we have become experts at extracting metadata values from documents’ body. We pull dates, titles, file numbers, and the likes, from files and store them in a reusable format. The resulting data can be uploaded in one of our solutions, or simply delivered to you.
Improve access by standardizing formatting
Converting image-based documents into text-based formats may require adopting a common look and feel for slightly different files. We design the required templates and apply them to your collections. Thanks to our knowledge of web accessibility guidelines, our templates automate a large portion of the work often associated with WCAG compliance. And we always take your requirements into account, whether it’s as simple as adding bookmarks in some PDF files, or as complex as undertaking the typesetting of a series of ebooks.
Get better outcomes with added value
Our expertise with legal information enables us to complement your content with domain-specific added value. We provide consolidation services for legislative material. We build the case names of decisions following the industry’s guidelines. We recognize legal citations and add links pointing to the corresponding documents. We use artificial intelligence to propose related documents based on the semantic of yours. If it’s about enhancing legal information, there is a good chance that we can do it.
