Mr. Vikesh Dhyani, Director Marketing & Innovation, LexisNexis India-South Asia, said, “India is witnessing an explosive growth in E-commerce start-ups and the pace is likely to accelerate further with the government initiatives like Digital India and Start-up India. As E-commerce ventures attempt to establish, grow and scale-up their operations, they require industry-specific legal/procedural knowledge to ensure compliance, thereby maintaining trust and confidence of their investors and shareholders. Regulators and enforcement agencies have enhanced their monitoring and scrutiny and instances of non-compliance have often impacted both reputation and market valuation of companies in the past. Legal counsels and advisors today are under tremendous pressure to keep pace with the rapidly evolving legislation and compliance needs. Lexis® Practical Guidance content provides them with practical information on ‘what to do’ and ‘how to do’ it. Dynamic, regularly updated content authored by eminent legal experts and offered on our user-friendly global technology platform makes Lexis® Practical Guidance a must-have solution for E-commerce companies and startups, venture capitalists and investors with interests in India, to ensure that they do not face any compliance violations issues and hence can continue to focus on building a stronger business and sustainable shareholder value.”

Mr. Shreesh Chandra, Senior Director, Content Creation & Acquisition, LexisNexis India-South Asia, and Ms. Preeti Arora, Associate Director, Practical Guidance, said, “Enterprise Compliance Management is a module focused on industry-specific and state-specific compliances. The module is designed to provide the industry-specific knowledge and procedures on licensing and registration requirements and compliances specified for each of the industry, foreign direct investment, intellectual property aspects, etc. In addition to industry-specific compliances, which spread over from the registrations to ongoing compliances applicable to an industry, it covers the state-specific legislations that are required to be complied with under different segments of law like labor and employment, municipal laws and environment and health. There are hundreds of laws around compliances across industries in India and it is difficult to get all the laws with relevant details in one place. In this module, compliance requirements for more than 500 laws along with more than 1000 forms have been provided.”

Mr. Apurv Sardeshmukh, Partner, Legasis Partners, said, “Legasis is a leader in the compliance management space and is proud to collaborate with LexisNexis®on Lexis® Practical Guidance. The modules have been prepared keeping in mind the issues faced by legal professionals when striving to comply with the applicable laws in India. We hope that Lexis® Practical Guidance modules will be beneficial to legal professionals associated with various businesses in the country.”
