"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)

"Practical Law allows us to provide the quality legal services that we want at a reasonable price for our clients. In today’s society, they come in and they need something tomorrow or next week. In order to do that, we’ve got to be able to get into the information as quickly as possible. Practical Law gives us that edge to be able to do that.
