IP Law

With the laws around Intellectual Property and Information Technology changing all the time, keeping pace is hard enough. But knowing the law isn’t enough. You need to know what those changes are going to mean for your clients. The big picture, the fine detail, the impact and the next steps.

 

LexisPSL IP & IT helps you get ahead of the competition by showing you what’s on the horizon. It’s full of practical guidance from our own in-house lawyers, outside experts and consulting editorial board – with direct links to cases, legislation and primary authorities like Butterworths and Halsbury.

You get concise practice notes, precedents and checklists (with executive summaries you can digest in a few minutes). We include flowcharts, with direct links to all the automated forms and templates you’ll need from start to finish. Plus ‘ready to rebrand’ marketing and training materials you can use to wow your clients. All in one place, with one login.

And it also includes international reports on 15 areas (including our report on trademarks covering over 50 jurisdictions).

So you can get up to speed with the latest legislation and developments in the areas that matter to you, quickly. And free up more time to do the work that your clients really value.
