LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com),
a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced
a new module of its Web-based practical guidance offering from Lexis®
Practice Advisor addressing the needs of Bankruptcy attorneys. The
Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy module was developed to help law
firms increase the productivity of their bankruptcy practices by
providing practical guidance, ‘on point’ content and analysis — backed
by Collier on Bankruptcy®, the preeminent treatise in the
bankruptcy field. The module helps to bring junior attorneys up to speed
quickly, while enabling senior attorneys to save time, allowing them to
expand their practice and stay up-to-date with changes in the law.
The Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy module for Lexis Practice
Advisor is an easy-to-use, intuitive legal information resource that
covers key topics of bankruptcy transactions – such as asset purchase
agreements, DIP financing, proofs of claims and more – from beginning to
end. Each topical area includes an overview and checklists, practical
guidance, model forms, legal analysis and emerging issues, as well as
cases and codes with directly relevant content from the Lexis®
service and Collier®, which complements and seamlessly links
into a firm’s existing Lexis and Collier subscription when deeper
research is needed.
The selection of model forms includes contributions from leading
practitioners, forms from the Lexis service, as well as briefs,
pleadings and motions which have been filed with the bankruptcy courts.
‘How to’ information and practice notes for each topic are provided by
leading practitioners and contributing attorneys from world-class law
firms such as Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett
LLP and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP.
“In today’s hyper-competitive law environment, practice productivity is
a primary focus for law firms, and this offering is the first to
effectively address the transactional aspects of the financial
restructuring and bankruptcy practice,” said Suzanne Petren Moritz, vice
president and managing director for Lexis Practice Advisor.
