TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- LexisNexis® Canada (www.lexisnexis.ca), a leading provider of legal information and technology solutions, announced today that the following three modules are now available for its Lexis Practice Advisor(SM) Canada product: 1) Wills, Trusts and Estates, 2) Business and 3) In-House Counsel. Lexis Practice Advisor provides new content, and is primarily built for transactional lawyers, having been written and edited by experts and leading law practitioners.

Lexis Practice Advisor Canada is an online workflow solution that is designed to assist legal professionals with an exclusive range of online content including practice notes, precedents with drafting notes and alternative clauses, checklists, flow charts, and a "how-to" guide in moving matters forward. It helps legal professionals complete transactional matters efficiently and confidently, even with dealings outside their normal area of practice.

Lexis Practice Advisor helps practitioners get up to speed quickly on what to do to address a given topic or transaction. It helps new lawyers become familiar with new matters and transactional practice quickly, so they can start billing. Lexis Practice Advisor can also efficiently refresh a senior lawyer's knowledge on less-familiar topics or on where the law is changing.

"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. "With a focus on transactional law, this is the first and only product of its kind in Canada."

Kyla Mahar of Thornton Grout Finnigan LLP, who is a LexisNexis Canada customer, said, "Lexis Practice Advisor Canada provides a great foundation for every step in a transaction. I think it will really help lawyers give better advice and, in turn, pass on excellent value to clients."

Part of a suite of solutions, Lexis Practice Advisor modules available now include Corporate Law; Business Law (for Ontario and B.C. practitioners); Wills, Trusts and Estates (for Ontario and B.C. practitioners); Insolvency & Restructuring; and Intellectual Property & Technology, with Commercial Law, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Securities modules to be released soon.

All Lexis Practice Advisor materials are continuously updated to reflect the latest developments in the law, for example, the Wills, Trusts and Estates module covers all the recent changes in the B.C. Wills, Estates and Succession Act (WESA), helping to ensuring that practitioners follow the latest and best market practices.
