LexisPSL Immigration Reduces Risk for UK Immigration Lawyers

Web-based module designed to help immigration practitioners stay up-to-date, save time and mitigate risk in this sensitive and high profile area of law

LONDON, 12 April 2011 – LexisNexis UK (, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the launch of Lexis®PSL Immigration, the latest module of the practice productivity product Lexis®PSL. The web-based module enables immigration practitioners to advise their clients accurately, promptly and with confidence within this high profile and constantly changing practice area.

The realities of global mobility, immigration complexity, restrictions and compliance requirements mean that many law firms handle immigration work even if it is not part of their core business. Changes to policy, and scattered information can make accessing the latest immigration law complex and time consuming for lawyers. This can lead to profit reductions, vulnerability for error and delays for clients.

Nick West, director of Legal Markets said: “Whether it’s part of your core business or not, it’s almost impossible to avoid the complexities of immigration law. Our customers clearly needed a product that helped them give excellent advice in a timely manner.”

In response, LexisNexis has brought together leading immigration experts to guide lawyers through the key U.K. business and personal immigration categories to save research and drafting time.  Expert practice notes provide a single source of information on eligibility, current awareness, precedents and process guides. LexisPSL Immigration also links customers directly to the trusted source material in Lexis®Library.

West added: “I’m delighted with the way LexisPSL Immigration takes the headache out of staying accurate and up-to-date.”

In addition to trusted LexisNexis expertise, the product has been created in partnership with leading immigration practices including Bates, Wells and Braithwaite, Renaissance Chambers and Turpin Miller.
