Thomson Reuters to launch online legal research service in Brazil

April 29, 2011 Revista dos Tribunais – a Brazilian legal resources company acquired by Thompson Reuters last year – is set to launch the first comprehensive online legal research service in Brazil.

Brazil is certainly a ripe market for this kind of product, with a thriving legal services industry and 600,000 working lawyers. Jim Smith, the chief executive officer of Thomson Reuters’ Professional Division, said “we are well positioned to serve this important market with next-generation tools that meet the needs of business and legal professionals in the region. We’re doing this by building upon the blueprint that has made our Westlaw online service the gold standard for legal professionals around the world: exceptional content, state of the art technology and an unmatched reputation for service excellence.”
