Compare Your Text to Market Standards

Streamline the drafting process and get it right the first time with Draft Analyzer. Determine whether your language is market standard. Easily find precedent agreements that are similar to your current transaction -- by the size or terms of the deal, parties and law firms involved, and other criteria. Start with language from agreements you find on our platform -- or your own language -- and with a single click, compare it to similar language in publicly disclosed agreements. Receive a number of redlined “templates” that show how the original language in your draft differs from standards derived from other transactions negotiated in the market, allowing you to validate draft language against the market and providing you a range of drafting options.


Search SEC Filings

Access all SEC filings and exhibits using filer, industry, financial and other criteria that help you locate the most relevant disclosure and contract language. Get meaningful information quickly from SEC filings, agreements and exhibits -- all easily searchable through our EDGAR Search. Understand filing and disclosure trends with Risk Factor and Item-specific searching, as well as comment letter threads that enable you to track specific disclosure issues that elicited questions from SEC Staff. Narrow this information to the key points you are seeking with our targeted searching and filing language comparison tools.

Locate relevant transactional language from nearly a million documents used in completed deals with our precedent database, DealMaker. Review deal summaries, compare clauses, and apply a variety of sophisticated filters to focus your search to the transactions that mostly closely compare to your current transaction.
