LexisNexis UK has announced the launch of LexisPSL Pensions, the latest addition to its legal intelligence product LexisPSL.

Designed as a single online resource with both practical guidance and key primary sources, LexisPSL Pensions enables pension lawyers to practice with confidence, work more efficiently and save time.

In response to the need for a resource that helps pension lawyers meet the challenges they face in a complex and constantly changing area, LexisPSL Pensions delivers clear and concise notes that both explain the principles of pensions law and give practical tips on how to apply it, from trustees’ duties to scheme funding, pension litigation to corporate transactions. 

Uniquely, LexisPSL Pensions links directly to consolidated versions of all key acts and statutory instruments, case reports and popular and commonly referenced sources including Tolley’s Pensions Law Service, Pensions Ombudsman determinations and the Registered Pension Schemes Manual, as well as providing direct access to Herbert Smith’s monthly pensions e-bulletin.

Nick West, director of legal markets for LexisNexis UK, said: “Pensions law is going through immense change. As new government and EU policy continues to radically transform the pensions market, it is essential that practitioners have the right information and tools to interpret and apply a growing set of laws.

“LexisPSL Pensions provides this through a single online resource, enabling pension lawyers to provide advice with confidence, work more effectively and save time.”

LexisNexis works in partnership with leading pensions experts, including Herbert Smith, Taylor Wessing, Squire Sanders and SJ Berwin, to guide customers through the legal implications as the pensions market evolves.

The consulting editorial board includes Robin Ellison, Wyn Derbyshire and Anne-Marie Winton and provides ongoing advice to ensure that the product remains at the highest standards and the cutting edge of legal practice.

Bitcoin: The new frontier or the next bubble?

Joe Smith Saunderson House

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency – a digital currency that uses cryptographic techniques to regulate the generation of units and to verify the transfer of funds. It is largely anonymous and unregulated, and underpinned by a digital ledger technology known as blockchain. In terms of the market, there is a limit of 21m Bitcoin that can ever be created. It is very narrowly held, with an estimated 40% of Bitcoin held by just 1,000 ‘investors’ and only a third having been traded in the last year. However, there are also a number of synthetic products through which one can gain access to Bitcoin, including contracts for difference, ETFs (exchange-traded funds) and, as of December, exchange-traded futures.
