Lexis Practice Advisor® Content Additions, August 2016

The Lexis Practice Advisor® service consistently adds and enhances content to the 13 offerings. The following are three notable content additions from August 2016.

The Bankruptcy Lexis Practice Advisor offering recently substantially revised its content on Chapter 15. The topic is drafted and maintained by a leading practitioner in the field—Marc Abrams from Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. The topic now contains a practice note on recent developments in Chapter 15, with a deep discussion of recent Chapter 15 cases. This topic is an invaluable resource for counsel seeking to gain a better understanding of ancillary and cross-border insolvencies.   

Intellectual Property & Technology
The Intellectual Property & Technology Lexis Practice Advisor offering continues to expand its patent litigation content. New content includes practice notes, forms and checklists on a variety of topics, including responding to a patent notice letter, the use of experts in patent litigation, privilege and work product considerations for patent experts, PTAB trial procedures in AIA proceedings, the key requirements and deadlines of various local patent rules (including the Northern District of California, Northern District of Illinois, District of New Jersey, Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and Eastern District of Texas), ITC Section 337 investigations, and sample forms with drafting notes, including a patent settlement agreement and release (pro-accused infringer), 30(b)(6) notice of deposition (patent owner to accused infringer) and response to a cease and desist letter. Additional litigation content will be added to the offering in the coming months. 

Labor & Employment
The Labor & Employment Lexis Practice Advisor offering now offers 10 state variations of non-discrimination and employment leave policies commonly drafted by labor & employment attorneys. The policies comply with both federal and state law and contain relevant drafting notes and other annotations. The 10 states include California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and the policies are located under those states’ subtopics in the EEO Counseling topic and the Attendance, Leaves and Disability Management topic. The Labor & Employment offering will continue to add more state-law–compliant policies and agreements during the remainder of 2016.
