New timesaving financial services regulation tools to stay on top of key developments and drill down quickly on complex issues

The financial services industry is rapidly evolving amid a changing regulatory and enforcement landscape. Attorneys can advise their financial services clients efficiently by making the most of practice notes, forms, checklists and other helpful guidance. The newly released Lexis Practice Advisor® Financial Services Regulation offering provides real-world practical guidance and tools for all aspects of regulation and enforcement—ranging from blockchain and other financial technology to bank operations and consumer financial services—and includes guidance authored by leading practitioners that you can’t find anywhere else.

Pratt® and LexisNexis® Sheshunoff® titles available on the Lexis Advance® Banking and Financial Services Practice Center, including key titles on topics ranging from the Bank Secrecy Act to Payment Systems to Consumer Lending and Mortgages.
