Fastcase acquires rival legal-research company Loislaw

“Legal research company Fastcase has acquired the competing service Loislaw from Wolters Kluwer. In a Monday post on his blog LawSites, Bob Ambrogi reported that the transaction is an “assets-only deal” that includes the Loislaw brand and website, and will move Loislaw’s subscribers over to Fastcase. According to Ambrogi, Loislaw subscribers began receiving messages over the weekend that the deal was done and that Wolters Kluwer would terminate the Loislaw product as of November 30. Neither Fastcase nor Wolters Kluwer disclosed the purchase price. Wolters Kluwer, an information services company based in the Netherlands, had previously purchased Loislaw in 2000 for $95 million. Fastcase confirmed the transaction on its website, stating that it was “excited to welcome Loislaw subscribers to the next generation of online legal research.” (via ABA Journal)
