The War Between the SuperSystems For the past 2 years everyone has been watching the 3 way tug-of -war for market share between Blaw, Westlaw and Lexis. I suspect that WK is not going to jump into that end of the pool. During this week's call Lemmond indicated that there would be no major change in direction for WK. However, he was confident that the company had the right pieces in place to expand market share with practice focused workflow solutions which enhance productivity and provide expert guidance.
Budgets are still tight in law firms, so focusing on productivity focused expert systems instead of competing directly with the SuperSystems may provide the right lever for growth in the current market.
Keep the phoneline open. The next voice you hear may be Bob Lemmond calling.
