Commercial

As a commercial lawyer, you have to cover a lot of ground. Today, you might be drawing up agreements for suppliers. Tomorrow, you might be dealing with a query on intellectual property. When you're wearing so many hats, sometimes the real challenge is simply knowing where to start. Whatever the challenge, LexisPSL Commercial is the only place you need to look. You'll find clear, concise practice notes that not only explain the legal principles, but include practical tips on how to apply them in real life - with direct links to the relevant legislation, case law, commentary, forms and precedents you'll need. And because an increasing number of our forms and precedents are being automated, with LexisSmart, you can draft a contract or generate a whole suite of documents just by filling in one questionnaire. Plus, you'll get regular news updates and analysis, to help you keep an eye on what's happening in the law and the market.

So you can be confident you're giving your clients accurate, up-to-date advice (even when you're out of your comfort zone). And with less time spent drafting and researching, you'll have more time to spend doing the work your clients really value.
