LexisNexis Adds Securities Law Module with Market Tracker to Lexis Practice Advisor Canada

Practical Guidance Solutions That Help Transactional Lawyers Increase Productivity, Efficiency and Billable Hours Are Now Available for Securities and Mergers & Acquisitions Lawyers in Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2014) - LexisNexis® Canada (www.lexisnexis.ca), a leading provider of information and technology solutions, today launched a Securities Law module for its practical guidance solution, Lexis Practice Advisor(SM) Canada. The eleventh module to be released since 2013, the Securities Law module helps securities practice groups execute transactions more efficiently, with greater confidence and in line with current legal and market trends.

Like all Lexis Practice Advisor modules, Securities Law includes practical guidance, checklists, model documents, flowcharts and market analysis. Practitioners ranging from new associates to senior counsel will be able to efficiently execute accurate work product in a wide range of transactions, including those with which they are unfamiliar or those that are complex. The content of all modules is written by leading Canadian practitioners at world-class law firms. Lexis Practice Advisor is "designed to be practical and helpful, whether it's in the courtroom or in the boardroom or in the practitioner's office," said Robin Walker, counsel at Paliare Roland Barristers.

For the Securities Law module, contributors include experts from Bennett Jones LLP, Fasken Martineau Dumoulin LLP, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP and Blake Cassels & Graydon LLP, among others.

The Securities Law module introduces Canadian practitioners to Lexis® Market Tracker, a cutting-edge tool that delivers real-time insights into current securities deals and trends, business intelligence and market analysis. Lexis Market Tracker is a deal analysis tool that includes full documentation from over 1,000 publicly filed merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions, manually analyzed across 900 deal points, from general business criteria to specific legal terms of the deal. The module is one of the pillars of the LexisNexis® Securities Suite, a full solution for securities and M&A practitioners featuring research collections that are strengthened by content that LexisNexis acquired recently from Wolters Kluwer; practical guidance materials that include the upcoming Mergers & Acquisitions module of Lexis Practice Advisor; and the Lexis Market Tracker for deal analysis.

"With the launch of the Securities Law module, we are addressing the need in the Canadian legal market for enhanced efficiency and productivity in a specific practice area," said Loik Amis, CEO at LexisNexis Canada. "Our existing range of modules is growing in popularity across law firms, government, law schools and in-house counsel. We are continually adding excellent content from our hundreds of practising contributors who are willing to share their unique knowledge. Now, with Lexis Market Tracker, the Securities Law module will be a game changer in the securities field of law."
