PRACTICAL GUIDANCE


Corporate Transactions

Two new finance transactions, Unsecured Term Loan and Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility have been added to the step-by-step practical guidance materials in the finance suite on Bloomberg Law Corporate Transactions. These two new transactions complement the existing Secured Term Loan and Secured Revolving Credit Facility transactions in the finance suite.  The transactions contain overviews, annotated timelines and checklists, forms, document overviews, precedents and additional resources that will be of particular interest to finance attorneys working with borrowers and lenders and attorneys who focus on credit & loan transactions.

Labor & Employment

The Labor & Employment Practice Center continues to build out its practical guidance content, adding 35 new documents.  Compliance checklists have been added, including: Best Practices for Responding to Internal Complaints of Discrimination and Harassment Based on Race or National Origin from Nonnie Shivers of Ogletree Deakins; Creating a Paid Sick Leave Policy for Federal Contractors from Megan Holstein and Laura A. Mitchell of Jackson Lewis; and Defending Against Retaliation and Whistleblower Claims from Tammy Daub and Anna Kim of Paul Hastings.

PRACTICE CENTERS

Bankruptcy Practice Center Launched

The enhanced Bankruptcy Practice Center is now available to all subscribers. This expanded practice center integrates analysis, news, case law, dockets, Practical Guidance, and business information in one place. The practice center features eight specialized practice pages to better align with practitioner workflows. Key features include the Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise, a Business Development page with data visualization, and a dedicated Chapter 11 Reorganizations practice page with a growing library of practical guidance suites. 

 

Privacy & Data Security

The Privacy & Data Security Practice Center continues to add Domestic Profiles, a new collection of state-specific summaries that pinpoint data privacy laws by function, topic, and sector and feature a local practitioner’s perspective on the current enforcement in the state.  To date, 25 domestic profiles have been added and additional states are being added routinely.  With heightened attention to privacy and compliance, these profiles and our extensive practical guidance related to GDPR are indispensable resources for in-house and law firm practitioners.

IN FOCUS PRACTICE PAGE


In Focus: CFIUS

The new In Focus: CFIUS page provides a comprehensive collection of the legal foundations and current developments of the rapidly changing field of CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States) review of potential acquisitions of U.S. businesses by foreign persons.  Legal practitioners assessing CFIUS issues or preparing applications for CFIUS approval of an acquisition will find the presidential orders and other developments shaping CFIUS actions today, along with the legislation, executive orders, and regulations defining the legal authority of CFIUS and legal analysis assessing the state of the field.

BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE CENTER


Daily Report for Executives Dashboard

In advance of the retirement of the Daily Report for Executives, we have built a Daily Report for Executives Dashboard that can be found on the Business Intelligence Center under “Practice Specific Templates.”  This template replicates the kind of content that is currently found in the Daily Report for Executives.

BOOKS & TREATISES


Bloomberg BNA

Bloomberg BNA has published a new title – Patents and Standards: Practice, Policy, and Enforcement – providing insight into industry and standards, and addressing what inventors, practitioners, and business people need to know to use standards to their advantage.  Technical standards, particularly for information and communications technology (ICT) industries, require use of patented technologies, as reflected by continuing growth in Wi-Fi and cellular standards. This trend will only increase as new or next-generation standards are developed for the Internet of Things, and for yet unforeseen applications.
