Lexis Practice Advisor® Content Additions, September 2016

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


The Finance module of Lexis Practice Advisor recently released a series of practice notes and corresponding charts in its Credit Agreement topic referred to as “The Client Asks …” Specifically, the practice notes address whether a borrower can engage in certain actions under the terms of its credit agreement. The first two practice notes in the product address (1) whether an asset sale is permitted under a credit facility and (2) whether a leveraged recapitalization is permitted under a credit facility. The practice notes also have corresponding charts that act as templates for customers to utilize in analyzing a client’s credit agreement. We plan to continue expanding this content to other borrower actions in the coming months.
