LexisPSL Built Environment Provides a One-Stop Solution for Property Lawyers

New package of web-based modules from LexisNexis provide practical solutions for property, construction, environment and planning lawyers

LONDON, 30 March 2012 – LexisNexis UK (, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the launch of its Lexis®PSL Built Environment solution. It is a package of three related modules: LexisPSL Property, LexisPSL Construction and LexisPSL Environment, each written by experienced lawyers and in partnership with leading firms such as Mayer Brown, Wragges and Nabarro

Companies are becoming increasingly concerned about environmental regulation and the impact on their core property or construction businesses. The interlinking of issues between property, construction, environment and planning law can be complex and difficult to navigate due to the location and availability of information. With the LexisPSL Built Environment package, lawyers have the resources they need to manage their clients’ property projects through the different stages. 

Nick West, director of Legal Markets for LexisNexis, said: “Lawyers are now expected to deliver both legal and commercial solutions to help their property and construction clients manage and grow their property portfolios. Environmental and planning regulation is also changing at a great pace. Keeping up-to-date with this is adding to the challenge that lawyers are facing.”

By having access to key content across three practice areas, lawyers can now feel confident in being able to advise and retain as much of their client’s work as possible without having to refer the matter on. Providing succinct practice notes, checklists, precedents, drafting notes and news analysis, LexisPSL helps lawyers to quickly understand the effect of legal changes and provide practical solutions for their clients.

In addition, the LexisPSL Built Environment current awareness programme and soon-to-be launched Talking Law webinar series will help to keep lawyers updated by providing relevant and timely insights and enabling them to be proactive with their clients.
