Westlaw tip: To search for a common term, or to exclude plurals or automatic equivalents, remember to use the # sign. This will force Westlaw to search for those common words, like no, not, prior or before. It will also prevent both plural words and automatic equivalents from being returned in the search results. So if you’re looking for the word “incorporated” but do not want to get “inc” as well, just use #incorporated as the search term.
