Review of 2013 Legal Research Vendors' Mergers, Acquistions, and Partnerships

The year started out with a trio of mergers in the legal information field when Thomson Reuters announced it was acquiring PLC, and Learnlive, and LexisNexis announced it was acquiring Knowledge Mosaic. The activity tappered off a bit after that initial first week flurry, but there have been a number of mergers, acquisitions and partnerships throughout 2013 and we thought we'd review what has changed this year.

I'm sure we've missed a few other activities that happened in 2013. Feel free to add those in the comments.

Let's see what 2014 brings in the great shrinkage of legal information providers.
