Easy access to practical guidance and "on point" legal content and analysis help law firms increase productivity and bring junior attorneys up to speed quickly

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. "It makes it easy for junior attorneys to hit the ground running, increasing their efficiencies so they can start billing faster, while more experienced attorneys will be able to streamline their work, freeing up time for their clients and to grow their practice."

By offering practical guidance from leading authorities on commercial bankruptcy and financial restructuring law, the Lexis Practice Advisor Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy module helps ensure both new and experienced attorneys have the trusted resources they need to expertly advise their clients and handle their cases in an expeditious manner.

"Lexis Practice Advisor is a great place to start legal research. It lays out the topics very clearly," said Anthony Napolitano, a senior attorney at full-service law firm Buchalter Nemer. "The site is very well organized so you can quickly find what you are looking for. It will be a valuable asset in helping to increase practice efficiency."

The Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy module for Lexis Practice Advisor follows the successful introduction of the Business Law module in January 2012, which covers commercial, contracts and corporate legal topics. Additional Lexis Practice Advisor modules will be available later this year, with the first jurisdictional module, California, launching in summer 2012.

Lexis Practice Advisor is offered on an annual all-inclusive subscription basis. It is available as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with a Lexis subscription.

More information about Lexis Practice Advisor is available on our product site at: www.lexisnexis.com/practice-advisor and via an overview video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8hI1v5DIqo.
