In House Advisor

As an in-house lawyer, you have to cover more ground than most. Today, you need to be an expert on data protection. Tomorrow, it could be employment contracts. And it’s not just a case of knowing the law. You need to have a nose for the commercial side of things, too.

Whatever the challenge, LexisPSL In-house is the place to start. It’s the only online tool that brings together all of the areas you need to deal with on a daily basis: commercial law, property law, employment law (and more). It also includes business skills to help you manage your team and understand your business so you can most effectively apply the law.

Our clear, punchy practice notes explain everything you need to know - with direct links to the most relevant primary sources and precedents. Our templates, checklists, glossaries, videos and ‘how to’ guides make it easy for you to see what to do next (including Getting the Deal Through, for international issues). And our news updates make it easy to stay on top of the latest changes in the law – with a commercial slant, so you can understand what they mean for your business.

So you can spend less time searching and drafting and more time being the trusted advisor you want to be.
