LexisNexis Responds to Changes in the Law with New Pensions Product

LexisNexis expands and complements its established pensions portfolio with the launch of LexisPSL Pensions, an unrivalled combination of practical guidance, latest news and direct links to primary sources

LONDON, Monday 20 February 2012 – LexisNexis UK (www.lexisnexis.co.uk), a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the launch of Lexis PSL Pensions, the latest addition to its legal intelligence product Lexis®PSL. Designed as a single online resource with both practical guidance and key primary sources, LexisPSL Pensions enables pension lawyers to practice with confidence, work more efficiently and save time.

In response to the need for a resource that helps pension lawyers meet the challenges they face in a complex and constantly changing area, LexisPSL Pensions delivers clear and concise notes that both explain the principles of pensions law and give practical tips on how to apply it, from trustees’ duties to scheme funding, pension litigation to corporate transactions. Uniquely, LexisPSL Pensions links directly to consolidated versions of all key acts and statutory instruments, case reports and popular and commonly referenced sources including Tolley’s Pensions Law Service, Pensions Ombudsman Determinations and the Registered Pension Schemes Manual, as well as providing direct access to Herbert Smith’s monthly pensions e-bulletin.

Nick West, director of Legal Markets for LexisNexis UK, said: “Pensions law is going through immense change. As new government and EU policy continues to radically transform the pensions market, it is essential that practitioners have the right information and tools to interpret and apply a growing set of laws. LexisPSL Pensions provides this through a single online resource, enabling pension lawyers to provide advice with confidence, work more effectively and save time.”

LexisNexis works in partnership with leading pensions experts, including Herbert Smith, Taylor Wessing, Squire Sanders and SJ Berwin, to guide customers through the legal implications as the pensions market evolves. Our consulting editorial board includes Robin Ellison, Wyn Derbyshire and Anne-Marie Winton and provides ongoing advice to ensure that the product remains at the highest standards and the cutting edge of legal practice.
