Risk & Compliance

LexisPSL Risk & Compliance is an online practical guidance product for in-house legal and compliance teams dealing with the ever-increasing and ever-shifting burden of risk and compliance.

Our content is written and structured to cover a wide-range of topic areas, all of which we know are areas of concern for in-house legal and compliance professionals, including: data protection, crises management, anti-bribery and corruption and external investigations.

Our Practice Notes tell you what you need to know, what you need to do and more importantly how to comply with the raft of rules and regulations. We also have an extensive suite of Precedents and tools, including panic sheets, workflows, checklists, training aids, registers, policies and plans.

LexisPSL Risk & Compliance is supported by an in-house legal team with extensive experience in practice and dedicated to producing content specifically for busy practitioners. This experience, combined with extensive customer research, has shaped our practical guidance on risk and compliance issues. We have built and continue to develop our product with the assistance of leading experts in the field.
