Lexis Practice Advisor Adds California Module Addressing Jurisdiction-Specific Transactional Matters

New practical guidance solution provides California attorneys with knowledge and tools to handle transactional matters faster and more confidently

NEW YORK, August 9, 2012 - LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced it has added the first jurisdictional module - California - to its Web-based practical guidance offering, Lexis® Practice Advisor. The new module provides California attorneys and those serving California-based clients with easy access to jurisdiction-specific practical guidance, checklists, model documents and legal analysis to help them handle transactional matters efficiently and with more confidence. The California module contains original content written and edited by leading attorneys currently in practice in California, capturing the most relevant legal information, analysis and trends in the state.  

"Lexis Practice Advisor is fantastic. It not only allows me to become knowledgeable in unfamiliar areas of law and learn about key topics in my practice areas, but I am also able to quickly locate information that I use in my office on a regular basis," said Christina Oleson, Partner at Oleson & Oleson, a San Diego-based law firm that provides services in the areas of real estate, corporate formation and litigation. "An added bonus is that there is less clutter on my desk because, I don't have stacks of books sitting around my computer."

The Lexis Practice Advisor California module is an intuitive, easy-to-use legal information resource that covers key topics pertinent to California practice such as Business Law for the California Attorney, Commercial Real Estate, Entertainment Law, and New California Corporate Entities. Each topical area includes an overview, step-by-step 'how to' practical guidance, checklists, model forms and legal analysis, delivering tools and insights to handle a transaction from beginning to end. With key content at an attorney's fingertips, the California module helps users get up to speed quickly on new or unfamiliar topics, provides a good starting point for drafting, and significantly simplifies the routine of legal practitioners. 

"California is a key jurisdiction for attorneys across the country, and advising clients on transactional matters in the state requires an in-depth knowledge of its unique topics, laws and industries," said Suzanne Petren Moritz, vice president and managing director for Lexis Practice Advisor. "We are excited that seasoned California attorneys worked with us to create the Lexis Practice Advisor California module, offering actionable guidance and insights vital to California legal practice and issues."

 The practical guidance, forms and practice notes in Lexis Practice Advisor's California module were written by prominent California practitioners from firms such as Jones Day, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP, Best Best & Krieger LLP, Perkins Coie LLP and Gordon & Rees LLP, and are complemented by authoritative Matthew Bender® treatises and California Legal Forms content from LexisNexis®. The module also includes access to applicable California and Federal codes, and on-point cases from California and the Ninth Circuit - all organized by legal topic or transaction.

The California module for Lexis Practice Advisor follows the successful introduction of the Business Law module in January 2012 and the Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy module in May 2012. Additional Lexis Practice Advisor modules will be available later this year, with a Corporate Counsel module launching in fall 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® subscription. More information about the Lexis Practice Advisor offering is available on our product site at
