CLD partners Thomson Reuters on publishing law e-books
One of Nigeria’s leading editorial designers and publishing services providers in Nigeria, Commercial Law Development Services (CLDS), has achieved another landmark as it signs an e-Book Publishing Partnership Agreement with Thomson Reuters.
Thomson Reuters ProView is one of the world’s leading proprietary, market-leading e-Book platforms for legal and tax professionals. It is specifically built for professional use, and includes advance features such as full-text search, secure notes, highlights and content updating.
Under the first phase of the agreement, four of CLDS’ law publications will be licensed for publication and distribution through Thomson Reuters’ professional e-reader ProView to the global community.
The publications set to make a debut on the first phase of the project, cover a range of topics and practice areas like Mergers and
Acquisitions, Commercial Arbitration, Corporate Governance, Trade and Investments.
Some of the titles authored by Professor Fabian Ajogwu, available on ProView include Mergers and Acquisitions in Nigeria: Law & Practice, Commercial Arbitration in Nigeria: Law & Practice, Corporate Governance and Group Dynamics and Trade & Investments in Nigeria: Legal & Regulatory Aspects.
While speaking at a brief ceremony to announce the agreement in Lagos, Senior Director and Head of Legal at Thomson Reuters Africa, Romulen Pillay, expressed excitement at the partnership, saying it would advance the rule of law within the African region.
He said, “I am excited by this partnership which will bring the information to the end users in a digitized and effective way. The professional market is highly focused on getting access to authored content in a manner that supplements the way they now work.”
Also Director, Research and Publications at CLDS, Mrs. Chioma Mordi, stated that “through this strategic partnership, Thomson Reuters will jointly manage sales and publishing activities of our e-books, while delivering a comprehensive array of publishing, marketing and book selling services, designed specifically for Commercial Law Development Services (CLDS). We look forward to a lasting and fruitful partnership as we intend to place our clients’ works on the global market.”
The author, Ajogwu, also expressed excitement at the partnership, stating that he was at the receiving end and urges fellow learned colleagues to avail themselves of the opportunity of promoting the legal practice beyond the shores of Nigeria through electronic platforms like the ProView by Thomson Reuters.
Ajogwu also emphasised that the titles being converted to e-books were written through his experiences as a legal practitioner of several years.
