Company

Founded in 1863 by Mr Richard Jordan as a company registration and law stationery business, Jordan Publishing grew to become an independent, specialist legal publisher by 1894 operating from 123 Chancery Lane, in the very heart of London’s legal district. By evolving and investing in innovative online services, we continue to provide up-to-date knowledge and information to support legal professionals through the ongoing changes and challenges they face.

The acquisition of Jordan Publishing by LexisNexis UK completed in January 2016. Both organisations share a long history of providing lawyers with expert content written by the country’s most esteemed authors. Together we can continue to deliver this market leading content while creating significant additional benefits for our customers.

It’s an exciting time, and we very much look forward to the opportunity this brings to provide you with new products and services in the future.
