RESTON, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Public Utilities Reports, Inc. (PUR), a provider of information and analysis to the electric and gas industry, is pleased to announce that, effective August 1, 2014, LexisNexis, a leading content and technology solutions provider, will have the exclusive online license to distribute PUR’s industry-leading content.

Public Utilities Reports, Inc. serves the utility industry and the regulatory community by publishing significant and precedent-setting decisions of state public utility commissions in its nationally recognized utility law reports. PUR has been the leading provider of information and analysis to the electric, natural gas, water and telecommunications industries for more than 85 years—and continues to be an indispensable resource for anyone with an interest in this field.

“We were attracted to LexisNexis because of their commitment to the Energy practice and the exceptional distribution opportunities for our content, via their state-of-the-art Lexis Advance platform, which will give users—especially in the large law firm and corporate legal markets—a genuine competitive advantage,” said Bruce Radford, President, Public Utilities Reports, Inc.

LexisNexis is delighted to have this opportunity to provide the utility industry with exclusive access to PUR’s extensive collection of full text decisions covering the entire field of utility regulation. PUR materials are among the most requested sources of information demanded by LexisNexis customers,” said Jeffrey Pfeiffer, Vice President, Primary Law for LexisNexis. “PUR produces exceptional content that includes value-added features, such as headnotes, synopses and other editorial enhancements written by their top-notch experienced staff. What’s more, Public Utilities Reports Series complement our energy offerings, which emphasize Agency and analytical content.”

With the ability to quickly access judicial and administrative decisions in one step, Public Utilities Reports significantly reduces research time. State agencies responsible for regulating public utilities often do not have the resources to put opinions online, particularly those dating back decades. Public Utilities Reports are often the only means of obtaining these key decisions.
