Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. products named to “Top 25 Products of 2017” by TechnoLawyer

Standard Fed Plus, SmartTask and SmartTask Pro, and Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Suite win recognition of TL NewsWire's 11,000+ subscribers.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced that three of its workflow solutions — Standard Fed Plus, SmartTask and SmartTask Pro, and Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Suite — are among the "Top 25 Products of 2017" for TechnoLawyer's TL NewsWire newsletter. The winning solutions represent the year's best innovative products for today's legal professionals. 

“These new offerings directly result from Wolters Kluwer's commitment to listening to our customers as we merge curated content, domain or subject area expertise, and new technologies,” said Dean Sonderegger, Vice President & General Manager, Legal Markets & Innovation. “We are pleased that our solutions are significantly improving customer outcomes and providing them with tools and solutions to enhance productivity, speed and accuracy.”

As a trusted provider of content for tax attorneys, Wolters Kluwer launched Standard Fed Plus to leverage its authoritative content with leading technology. The tool provides tax attorneys with clarity on changes in the federal tax law against the backdrop of a complex, continually changing environment, particularly after the recent passage of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017. With tools such as point-in-time navigation and redlining comparison capabilities, users can instantly see changes in federal tax laws and regulations, allowing them to provide a higher caliber of service to clients. TL Newswire states, "Given the volume of changes that can occur in the Tax Code, the Redlining Comparison Tool in Standard Fed Plus enables you to compare two versions of a section with additions in green and deletions in red."

SmartTask and SmartTask Pro are legal interactive practice guides. SmartTask provides step-by step guidance to complete key tasks and SmartTask Pro allows firms to standardize their own best practices and add their own documents to the workflow. TL Newswire states, "SmartTask one-ups the competition by providing interactive guides with links to forms, government websites, treatises, etc. SmartTask Pro takes this interactivity even further by enabling you to customize these guides and even create your own using your firm's model documents and practice notes." 

The Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Suite provides focused content and tools to efficiently navigate the complex legal and regulatory environment of cybersecurity and electronic privacy. TL Newswire states, "[It Includes] Practice Tools called Smart Charts that help you advise on compliance issues. For example, many cybersecurity regulations contain rules about breach notifications — i.e., when a company must notify customers, regulators, etc. about a security breach. The Breach Notification Smart Charts provide answers to common breach questions that arise."

TL Newswire, a weekly TechnoLawyer newsletter, discusses new products for lawyers and law office administrators. The newsletter offers valuable information on products including its functions, notable features and annually ranks them based on votes from its subscribers. Major themes among this year's winners included practice management, automation, legal research, litigation, and client communications. Winners are published every December.
