Thomson Reuters Adds CQ Roll Call Coverage of the Insurance Industry to WestlawNext

Insurance practice page is the latest addition to WestlawNext Practitioner Insights

EAGAN, Minn. – Thomson Reuters announced the addition of a new practitioner-focused page covering the insurance industry on WestlawNext. For the first time, regulatory and legislative coverage for the insurance industry will be provided by CQ Roll Call Washington Briefings, building on the collection of authoritative content that CQ Roll Call provides to Practitioner Insights.

Coverage of the new practice page will include state regulations relevant to insurance coverage for automobiles, fire, homes and healthcare. Insurance regulatory and legislative developments will be tracked at the federal level related to natural disasters and terrorism risk, as well as financial services.

According to Jill Roisum, senior director of Product Management at Thomson Reuters, legal professionals require the latest, most relevant legal information, as well as regulatory and legislative developments, that affect their practice area and their clients. “The expansive and up-to-the minute coverage CQ Roll Call provides pertaining to government, legislative and regulatory activity of the insurance industry will bring critical resources to help legal professionals efficiently and effectively advise their clients or organization,” she noted. “The insurance industry current awareness content will be maintained by a dedicated team of attorney editors. This content, along with Reuters news and timely analysis from Westlaw Journals, will enable users to track the legal and regulatory landscape for their clients, and identify new business development opportunities,” Roisum added.

“We are excited to expand the content that CQ Roll Call provides to WestlawNext users,” said Meg Hargreaves, CQ Roll Call’s senior vice president and chief client officer. “CQ Roll Call’s coverage of developing legislative and regulatory policy brings an additional resource to keep WestlawNext subscribers abreast of the news in one of the most highly regulated and rapidly evolving industries.”
