As a new crop of Fall Associates descends upon the nation’s top law firms, it’s a good time to remind our users that proficiency in SEC filings research bears little relationship to the kind of knowledge tested on the Bar Exam. The practical, nuts-and-bolts skills your Associates need to master are best gained by a direct plunge into what might appear to be murky, roiling waters.
Of course, there are ways of accelerating the learning process. First and foremost, we highly recommend you take advantage of the free training that is available to your subscriber base as part of your Lexis Securities Mosaic license. Did you know that we are in better position than ever to train Fall Associates in person in your firm? If that’s not a possibility, we’re happy to offer training via webinar. Reach out to your Securities Mosaic Solutions Consultant representative, or visit our training sign-up page at http://www.lexissecuritiesmosaic.com/net/public/Training.aspx.

We are kicking off a series of 30-minute webinars on how to best use Securities Mosaic to follow and act on a particular topic. Today, Thursday, August 20, at 1:30 pm Eastern, we’ll be looking at the recent SEC proposed clawbacks rule. The rule, affecting most exchange-listed companies, enacts a Dodd-Frank mandate for the recovery of incentive-based compensation to executives that is later discovered to have been overpaid. Find out more about the rule and how you can use Securities Mosaic to stay on top of it.
Sean Coleman of our Solutions Consultants team will be leading the webinar. Registration is free and open, but is required for participation. Click here to register.

Important notice: Lexis® Securities Mosaic® will temporarily be unavailable this weekend, while we make upgrades to improve our service to you. Our upgrade work will begin on Friday, August 14 at 10:00pm EDT / 7:00pm PDT through Sunday evening, August 16. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. Thank you.
Back in May, we quietly changed the URL for Lexis Securities Mosaic, from securitiesmosaic.com to lexissecuritiesmosaic.com. (In November we had already changed it from knowledgemosaic.com to securitiesmosaic.com, to coincide with our name change.) This change was part of a major under-the-hood upgrade we made to our technical infrastructure, which has resulted in a faster, crisper, and more reliable experience for our users.
We had put in place a redirect to automatically route users to the new URL, so most didn’t notice the URL change. Unfortunately, that redirect was down for a time on Thursday (it’s back up now), causing many of our users to wonder where we had gone. Securities Mosaic itself actually never went anywhere — but those of you who used our former URLs were unfortunately unable to access the site for a time. We apologize for that inconvenience. But it gives us an opportunity to mention that lexissecuritiesmosaic.com is our primary and official home. The redirects will continue to work, but we still recommend you update your bookmarks and intranet sites.
