Bloomberg Law today announced the launch of its new Corporate Practice Center, which features a significant expansion in content developed exclusively for corporate counsel. It integrates practical guidance, expert analysis, commentary, news, primary sources and practice tools on issues of vital importance given the unique role of lawyers in corporations. To learn more about Bloomberg Law’s Corporate Practice Center,
Developed with extensive input on content and structure from corporate counsel, the Corporate Practice Center enables attorneys to manage a variety of functions quickly and efficiently, such as drafting policies and form agreements, developing workflow strategies for their department and building and running effective compliance programs.
Ethics and compliance are major areas of focus for general counsel, with 74 percent of respondents rating ethics and compliance a top challenge according to the Association of Corporate Counsel Chief Legal Officers 2017 Survey. To meet these needs, the new practice center features comprehensive practical guidance materials, including overviews, checklists, annotated forms and documents and comparison surveys developed by attorneys at major U.S. corporations and their outside counsel. It incorporates compliance content authored by the in-house legal department at U.S. Steel Corporation, providing users with step-by-step guidance on benchmarking, building and maintaining a corporate compliance program, providing unique perspectives and tools for sustained compliance initiatives.
The Corporate Practice Center’s offerings also include a prioritized set of sample form agreements and policies covering the tasks that in-house attorneys deal with regularly and for which sample templates are often needed. For legal departments’ business needs, a wealth of materials authored by in-house counsel are available to help department heads effectively structure and run their operations.
The new Corporate Practice Center, as with all Bloomberg Law enhancements to tools and content, is available at no additional cost to existing clients.
