Get a Head Start on Your Work with Valuable Legal Guidance

Tackle more work using the know-how found in the Lexis Practical Guidance service. Rely on guidance, checklists and annotated forms from experienced attorney authors.

You may recall an earlier article on Lexis® Legal Advantage regarding the potential dangers of Attorney Specialization. While it’s important to have expertise in specific practice areas, you can run the risk of becoming too niche and missing out on a big chunk of your local legal market. That’s why Practical Guidance can be such a valuable asset to your law firm.

Increase Your Efficiency

With sample forms and agreements, alternative clauses and handy checklists, the Practical Guidance service can save you hours of research and writing time—so you can turn the focus back on your legal work.

Even better, Lexis® Smart Forms use an intuitive questionnaire to help you begin the form drafting process. Your answers will auto-populate in the appropriate fields and give you a head start on your document creation.
