How Practical Law Helps Corporate Law Departments

See how Practical Law resources are helping attorneys in corporate law departments:

"I think Practical Law is a fantastic resource. The materials are easy to find and understand, and I feel comfortable distributing them to internal business people and functions. It saves me a lot of time, gives our people very useful tools and checklists and legal insights, and saves on outside counsel fees."

Vice President & Assistant General Counsel at a business process solutions company

"Practical Law is a "must have" service. The practice notes, articles and updates contain all the information I need to have at my fingertips, packaged succinctly. Their resources cut to the chase. Every Friday morning, the first thing I do is check for their weekly email as I know it will have key insights I can use. As an in-house lawyer who is constantly bombarded from all sides and has very little time to spare, Practical Law is the service I turn to."

Bridget K. Marsh
Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, The Loan Syndications and Trading Association (LSTA)

"I think that Practical Law is the most practical and efficient resource on the market today to assist in the review of transaction documents. It provides practical, topical and timely information to assist a practitioner to conduct a document review within the time and budgetary constraints dictated by clients. Many other resources are either too academic, too focused on marketing for those who prepare them or too out of date, which minimizes the utility of the product."
