Whether you are an attorney involved in
mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, banking and finance, or other
transactions, Bloomberg Law: Corporate Transactions’ drafting resources
and market-comparison workflow tools will help you draft best-in-class agreements.
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.

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.
