vLex Justis enhance UK dockets collection with daily updates

London, July 2020 – The UK dockets collection launched by vLex Justis in April has received a significant enhancement, with dockets from the High Court now being updated daily, bringing this information to researchers faster than was previously possible.

This update means that vLex Justis makes UK dockets from the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court available on a single intelligent platform, all receiving daily updates to ensure that the latest information is available to anyone who needs it.

Alongside regular updates, High Court dockets on vLex Justis now date back to 2010, available alongside Supreme Court and Court of Appeal dockets from 2019 onwards. This means the service now contains over 200,000 UK dockets, enabling researchers to gain a more comprehensive understanding of previous matters.

UK dockets on vLex Justis are available for ongoing access, so researchers no longer need to pay per session, or work to timed access restrictions as they would be with traditional docket services. Larger organisations can also benefit from multiple user access to dramatically reduce the time it takes to search and retrieve documents by all team members.

Accessing this collection on vLex Justis will enable law firms, barristers’ chambers, due diligence professionals and corporate investigations firms to easily search, download, share and create email alerts for new dockets. Researchers will also benefit from access to UK dockets available alongside primary and secondary sources from over 130 jurisdictions, including the largest collection of UK superior court judgments and comprehensive as-enacted UK legislation.

Aidan Hawes, Head of Commercial Development, discussed the importance of this update:
“Our UK dockets service has been enthusiastically received since we initially launched it in April, solving many of the problems that researchers had in accessing dockets previously. We received feedback that offering more regular updates to High Court dockets would be beneficial, and thanks to the hard work of our team we have been able to offer that, making this resource even more valuable to any researcher who needs access to UK dockets”

Web Banner App Gets COVID-19 Updates Out Quicker

Businesses can now use a new app to easily publish COVID-19 updates on their websites so customers understand how to contact them and what effect it has on their services.

UK based business Wildfire Internet has developed the app following a flood of requests from website owners who needed to inform customers visiting the websites of their trading position, delays to shipping and how to contact them with offices being closed down as staff moved to homeworking.

“We started to get phone calls from clients needing an urgent message added to their website to let people know what was happening” said Neil Whelan, MD of Wildfire Internet.

“Many companies wanted to reassure people they were still providing essential services in line with government guidelines, such as electrical services and food deliveries. Others needed to advise product deliveries were impacted, or how to stay in touch due to office closures.”

Typically businesses put a message somewhere on their home page, but visits to websites often come in to many different landing pages where the message is not displayed. Using the app, the message is published at the top of every single page on the site so all visitors are informed irrespective of which page they first visited. The app only needs a single line of html code added to a site once and then marketers can post and change updates without the need for a developer thereby eliminating delays and costs.

Continuing, Neil added: “We quickly realised that many other businesses were in the same position and just wanted to get their message out really quickly so we rolled our sleeves up and released the app as fast as we could to help them out.”

With the COVID-19 lockdown being so widespread and disruptive, the company took the decision to release it for free to help as much as possible during a difficult period.

“It’s a generally useful app for pushing out all sorts of important updates or promotions so we will keep the core banner service free even once the pandemic finally ends.”

EastNets reveals that 28 institutions are now benefiting from secure real-time watchlist updates over blockchain

Brussels (March 31, 2020) –– EastNets is pleased to announce that 28 financial institutions are now live users of a real-time watchlist feed, delivered securely over blockchain.


In partnership with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, EastNets successfully commercialized a feed of sanction alerts over a private blockchain network. EastNets ChainFeed™ is now featured within EastNets’ watchlist screening solution, SafeWatch Filtering. Today, all financial institutions that are actively using EastNets SafeWatch have access to Dow Jones’s high-quality sanction alerts carried over a private blockchain network directly to the screening engine, EastNets SafetWatch Filtering.

Furthermore, the secure nature of the blockchain-enabled EastNets solution restricts the opportunity for malevolent actors to intercept and/or manipulate watchlist data.

Deya Innab, EastNets Chief Strategy and Product Officer, said: “We continuously look to new technology as an opportunity to enhance our customer experience. The question will always be: how and which technology should we use to bring greater value to our customers?

“We understand the challenges and risks associated with manual updates of watchlists. Our customers need a timely, secure courier to carry watchlist feeds from end-to-end. This innovative solution uses blockchain technology to overcome these challenges. Designing and testing a suitable solution was challenging, but we are delighted to lead the industry with a real-time, secure watchlist update solution that is actively used by leading institutions that now meet their compliance obligations every minute of the day.”

In October 2018, in partnership with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, EastNets showcased the first proof of concept (POC) for a real-time, blockchain-based compliance watchlist.  At this time, EastNets ChainFeed™ Solution provides a continuously updated feed of Dow Jones’s sanction alerts.
