Osprey Approach offers integration with Lexis Nexis Smart Forms, allowing you to run their library of legal forms through Osprey.
Please note that you must have an account with Lexis Nexis and will require Adobe Reader to be set as your default PDF viewer to view the forms.
Generating a Lexis Form

You can amend the description, assign the form to a folder and set a retention period if required.

Upon saving a form for the first time, this message will appear advising that the form has been saved into your matter history.
