Washington, DC and Chicago, Ill. (March 7, 2019) – Legal publisher Fastcase today announced it will offer its subscribers online sophisticated analytics to deliver actionable intelligence in partnership with TransUnion (NYSE: TRU), a leading global risk and information solutions provider.
Fastcase members will have the opportunity to access TransUnion’s specialized risk data as part of its alternative, non-credit and public record solution. Designed to help attorneys perform due diligence, locate parties of interest, support litigation efforts and access fraud and identity solutions, the solution will support the day-to-day data and risk management needs for attorneys.
“Fastcase has been pushing on behalf of its subscribers to offer a comprehensive legal research solution,” said Fastcase Chief Operating Officer Steve Errick. “We have heard time and again from our subscribers that data on people, assets and businesses are an important need for Law Firms, and we’re privileged to work with one of the world’s leaders to deliver them to hundreds of thousands of lawyers.”
Starting in the first quarter of 2019, Fastcase will deliver TransUnion’s specialized risk data, which is governed by law, throughout its new Fastcase 7 platform. Time consuming tasks, from deep due diligence investigations on individuals or businesses to witness location and debt recovery will extend naturally within Fastcase.

“The partnership with Fastcase ensures both large and small law firms have access to more robust data allowing them to quickly perform due diligence, conduct litigation support, locate witnesses and easily manage customizable invoicing,” said Glen Goldstein, TransUnion’s Senior Vice President of Diversified Markets.
Fastcase expects its new specialized risk offering to be popular across many different types of law firms. “For years our state and local bar partners and consumer bankruptcy customers have asked us for risk solutions that include public records data. Now we’re seeing interest among our AmLaw 250 subscribers as well,” said Fastcase President Phil Rosenthal. “Naturally, when the chance to partner with TransUnion was presented, we jumped at the opportunity.”
