"Lexis Practice Advisor represents a significant shift in the legal publishing landscape. A leap beyond traditional legal research, Lexis Practice Advisor is an intuitive, 'results-oriented' workspace that assists lawyers through the completion of tasks, both common and unusual," said Loik Amis, Chief Executive Officer at LexisNexis Canada.
