WEST PUBLISHING AND BANKS-BALDWIN SIGN AGREEMENT

 EAGAN, Minn., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of the oldest firms in American law publishing are joining forces. Banks-Baldwin Law Publishing Company of Cleveland signed an agreement this month to be operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of West Publishing Company of Eagan. Between them, the two companies have over 300 years of legal publishing experience.
 Dwight S. Opperman, president and chief executive officer of West Publishing Company, said, "With proven editorial expertise and an excellent reputation, Banks-Baldwin is the preferred source for legal information in its market area. Serving the legal community is our prime concern. We have served the Ohio and Kentucky bench and bar for many years. Now, as a resident publisher, we will do an even better job."
 According to P.J. Lucier, president of Banks-Baldwin, "This is a great opportunity for both companies. The synergies are remarkable. Banks-Baldwin will gain the support it needs to advance its ambitious product development goals. West will benefit from our reputation and editorial capabilities. West has always set the standard for quality publications and service to customers -- the two prime movers that drive Banks-Baldwin; and West is the leader in the applications of new technologies to traditional publishing. We are merging with the premier company in our industry."
 Banks-Baldwin will market all of the West Publishing and Banks- Baldwin publications and services to the Ohio and Kentucky legal communities. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
