Frequently Asked Questions

What is Lexis® Practical Guidance?
Lexis® Practical Guidance is a brand new workflow-based online solution for legal practitioners. Designed by practice areas, the various modules provide access to a broad collection of Practice/Guidance Notes authored by Industry Experts along with Commentaries, Forms and Precedents, Templates, Checklists, Cases and Legislation across the topics that you need to successfully deal with any legal matter.
Will this be a part of my Lexis®India subscription?
This is a new service that allows you to work more efficiently with all your procedural and transactional work requirements and not just case reference library. However if you have already subscribed to Lexis®India, you will be able to work seamlessly between the two services, giving you the most trusted source of information and knowledge that you would require for everyday working.
How is Lexis® Practical Guidance different from Lexis®India?
LexisNexis® is a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions designed specifically for professionals in the legal, risk management, corporate, government, law enforcement, accounting, and academic markets. LexisNexis originally pioneered online information with its Lexis® and Nexis® services. LexisNexis India offers an unrivaled breadth of core research resources with fully up-to-date, versioned laws, cases enhanced with our leading cases, expert commentaries and renowned titles such as Ramaiya Guide to Companies Act, etc. Lexis® Practical Guidance is a brand new workflow-based online solution for legal practitioners, providing them with a range of practical materials to enable them to work more efficiently, ultimately reducing time spent on a transaction.

Each practice area module has “know-how” content that you will not find anywhere else and it's written by local experts in India and international partners. It's different from Lexis®India, which is a research platform. Lexis® Practical Guidance is a workflow-based online solution that provides practical resources to help you efficiently complete transactional matters with confidence.
I am already using lot of database portals. What extra value will Lexis® Practical Guidance add?
It's different and not in the same league as other database providers are in. We are providing workflow solution, which is first-of-its-kind in India that caters to the needs of the legal counsels and legal professionals to carry out the compliance and transactional work efficiently and effectively.
Whom Lexis® Practical Guidance is aimed at? I don't do much drafting any more
The product is aimed at experienced practitioners and associates/researchers. Experienced practitioners will benefit from the wide range of up-to-date model documents available that can complement your internal knowledge base. Practice Notes and Legal News and Analysis will ensure you stay up-to-date with the latest trends and practice. You will also benefit from being able to delegate confidently to junior associate and researchers with minimal supervision as the service guides them step-by-step through an area of practice with handy precedents, checklists and flowcharts to ensure no part of a process is missed. Substantial drafting notes, alternative clauses and quick links to supporting legislation and cases mean your team can work much faster and produce high quality documents for your review.
