LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the debut of a new practical guidance resource for corporate legal departments. The Lexis® Practice Advisor Corporate Counsel module offers insights and resources addressing the topics, transactions and perspectives most critical to in-house practitioners. It includes step-by-step ‘how to’ information, sample documents with practical annotations and deeper legal analysis, focused on the pertinent steps of a transaction from beginning to end. Putting key resources and guidance at in-house lawyers’ fingertips, the Corporate Counsel module simplifies and accelerates the execution of routine transactional matters and ultimately allows a more focused and effective execution of transactional and general business matters.
“Today’s corporate practitioners are facing unprecedented pressures. They need to handle a broad range of legal transactions that require deep knowledge of best practices, regulations and industry issues, all while tasked to limit both staff and use of outside counsel resources for mission-critical activity,” said Suzanne Petren Moritz, vice president and managing director for Lexis Practice Advisor. “With guidance, content and tools directly applicable to corporate transactions, Lexis Practice Advisor’s Corporate Counsel module allows in-house attorneys to spend more time on the finer points of negotiating and executing a deal, and less on handling or supervising routine issues.”
The Corporate Counsel module was developed with input from more than 350 in-house attorneys and features a step-by-step, instructive format, which presents only content that is relevant to the transaction at hand, saving users time spent on sifting through irrelevant documents or information. The module’s guidance and commentary is written by leading practitioners at respected law firms, such as Winston & Strawn LLP, Littler Mendelson and Murray, Hogue & Lannis, as well as a dedicated team of former in-house attorneys, enabling users to draft documents and negotiate transactions efficiently, confidently and in-line with current legal and market trends.
