Mergers & Acquisitions practitioners across Canada can now obtain practical guidance on transactional matters as well as real-time intelligence on thousands of M&A deals
TORONTO, March 4, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - LexisNexis® Canada, a leading provider of information and technology solutions, today launched a Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) module for its practical guidance solution, Lexis Practice AdvisorSM Canada. The twelfth module to be released since 2013, the M&A module helps practitioners manage transactional matters more efficiently, with greater confidence, and in line with current legal and market trends.
"The launch of the mergers and acquisitions module allows us to complete our Securities Suite offering to Canadian legal practitioners in the securities and M&A practice areas," said Loik Amis, CEO at LexisNexis Canada. "With the Lexis® Market Tracker analysis tool, these modules will be an invaluable tool to our customers. Lexis Practice Advisor is the only product that offers practical guidance and expertise from both a team of in-house experts as well as more than 200 active Canadian legal practitioners."
Lexis Market Tracker delivers real-time insights into current public securities deals and trends, business intelligence and market analysis. Lexis Market Tracker is a deal analysis tool that includes full documentation from more than 2,000 publicly filed M&A transactions, manually analyzed across 900 deal points, from general business criteria to specific legal terms of the deal. The module is one of the pillars of the LexisNexis® Securities Suite, a full solution for Securities and M&A practitioners featuring research that is strengthened by content that LexisNexis acquired recently from Wolters Kluwer.
Like all the practice area modules currently available with Lexis Practice Advisor, the M&A module includes practice notes, checklists, model documents, flowcharts and market analysis. Practitioners ranging from new associates to senior counsel will be able to efficiently produce accurate work product in a wide range of transactions, including those with which they are unfamiliar or those that are complex. The content of all modules is written by leading Canadian practitioners at world-class law firms along with an 11-strong internal team of lawyers with practice area experience and expertise. External contributors include Fasken Martineau Dumoulin LLP, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, Blake Cassels & Graydon LLP, Bennett Jones LLP, Baker & McKenzie LLP, McMillan LLP, Dentons LLP and Borden Ladner Gervais LLP.
