LawInContext Pte. Ltd. ("LawInContext") is the legal information and training venture created by Baker & McKenzie. While neither a law firm nor authorized to practice law, LawInContext provides online multi-jurisdictional legal, tax or compliance information (as opposed to legal advice) and/or online/live training from a multi-jurisdictional perspective oriented towards specific communities of clients who require access to up-to-date, tailored, high quality legal information and training from a global perspective in various areas of the law.
LawInContext, working with Baker & McKenzie’s practice and industry groups, achieves numerous efficiencies, which translate into cost-savings for clients, by offering its legal information and training via an online subscription service, which can be linked to concrete and specific legal advice from the Firm. A particular area of focus for LawInContext is where clients require global survey work that involves continual updating – an area that impacts on legal budgets, which can be difficult to manage in view of a company's global legal, tax and regulatory information needs. LawInContext seeks opportunities to develop online multi-country jurisdictional legal information and training that is kept up-to-date on a periodic basis, made available online seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, and supplemented by subscriber e-alerts apprising users of key developments. By making its online legal information and training available to multiple users, LawInContext is able to dramatically reduce the costs associated with accessing the relevant multi-jurisdictional legal information or training. When such information and training is seamlessly combined with the delivery of focused legal and tax advice, companies can achieve meaningful cost savings while managing their growing compliance and other risks in the various jurisdictions of relevance to them.
LawInContext provides a cost-effective, innovative way to have timely and comprehensive legal, tax and compliance information as well as training at your fingertips. It offers global coverage in a convenient online format – through content library “Helpdesks”, e-learning and live training, as well as private web sites – targeted to specific topics.
LawInContext Helpdesks and training modules are offered through subscription packages tailored to your information needs. Over 120 institutions and many thousands of users rely on LawInContext Helpdesks and training modules. LawInContext was “highly commended” by the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers 2007 in the client service category.
