New Zealand professional information provider Brooker's Ltd has acquired the BRIEFCASE case law database.

BRIEFCASE is an index to New Zealand case law since 1986. It was developed by Auckland company Law Library Management, and is one of New Zealand's most highly regarded legal research tools.

Brooker's Managing Director Neil Story said Brooker's legal portfolio would be enhanced by BRIEFCASE. "This strengthens our position as New Zealand's leading provider of legal information," Mr Story said.

"BRIEFCASE cross-references over 30,000 cases to legal publications, and it is an important resource for legal professionals."

Brooker's has worked in partnership with New Zealand's legal professionals since 1910. Its business is built on the provision of innovative high quality information products and services that meet the changing needs of customers. Brooker's is part of the international Thomson Corporation, one of the world's largest providers of professional information.
