The innovative Practical Guidance Business Law solution launched by LexisNexis South Africa is poised to assist businesses and legal advisors to complete a range of transactions without the headache of time consuming drafting.
The Practical Guidance Business Law module provides comprehensive and up-to-date legal information and practical know-how. This is complemented by useful guidance across a range of business and commercial issues, highlighting key practical considerations and pitfalls.
Practical Guidance Business Law is the third practice area in this leading content and technology provider’s online research series, following the launches earlier this year of Practical Guidance modules for Labour and Tax.
The content for Practical Guidance Business Law is authored by experts from Garlicke & Bousfield and covers matters as diverse as: Forms of Business Enterprise, Contract Law, Buying and Selling a Business, Financial Reporting, Takeovers, Securities, Business Disputes, Insolvency and Intellectual Property Rights and the Protection thereof.
The Practical Guidance product is a web-based solution and the first of its kind in South Africa, providing users with online access to guidance material and commentary authored by expert practitioners in their field. It also includes checklists, legislation, step-by-step processes, document precedents and direct links to relevant external content at their fingertips.
The series was first launched by LexisNexis ® in the UK and Australia, where over 2000+ firms have signed up for the product, with 10 000+ unique users.
Larsen Lockwood-Hall, Strategy & Business Development Executive at LexisNexis South Africa said: “Now more than ever legal advisors must be up to speed with rapidly changing legislation and legal practice. Practical Guidance content provides users with practical information on the “what-to” and “how-to” questions, complimenting existing LexisNexis commentaries that can be accessed for deeper research.”
The series is fully integrated with the MyLexisNexis deep research library. Corporates will benefit from the reduced requirement to bring in skilled professionals and consultants during research stages, since in-house resources can easily learn to use Practical Guidance.
Professionals can also look forward to the release of Practical Guidance Civil Procedure during the final quarter of 2013.
