DealMaker Documents Overview


DealMaker gives you access to over 800,000 legal documents that were used by top practitioners in real transactions and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission through EDGAR. The documents in the DealMaker Database have been analyzed and classified according to a number of helpful criteria so you can find transaction precedents specifically tailored to your needs. 
You can search for example agreements, prospectuses and clauses by document type, clause title, keyword, date, transaction type, governing law, SIC industry, party, law firm and attorney, while a robust set of filters lets you narrow your results to the exact precedent that you need. When searching over M&A and Public Offering document types, you can further narrow your search by specialized, deal-specific terms from our Deal Analytics database, such as underwriter and deal size and access Deal Details for the overall transaction. Our clause search functionality will let you pinpoint precise language in specific clauses and compare your results with one another and with your own text.
