PRACTICAL GUIDANCE

Corporate Transactions


A new collection of Practical Guidance covering domestic and international Joint Ventures has been added to Corporate Transactions.  As with all of our Corporate Transactions Practical Guidance, the Joint Ventures materials are presented in step-by-step fashion, providing the resources a lawyer needs to close a deal. The collection includes Annotated Sample Agreements and Ancillary Agreements, Timelines, Checklists, Overviews, Trackers and other drafting and negotiating guidance. This collection will be of particular interest to corporate legal departments and the M&A lawyers who work with them.  The content is available on the Private M&A page of Corporate Transactions Practical Guidance.

 

Corporate Practice Center; Privacy & Data Security Practice Center


Forty documents addressing the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regime are now available on the Corporate Practice Center and the Privacy & Data Security Practice Center.  The material covers individuals’ rights under the GDPR and companies’ requirements to undertake data assessment and mapping, appoint data protection officers, and take certain actions in the case of a data breach.

 

Benefits & Executive Compensation


The Benefits and Executive Compensation Practice Center added two new step-by-step Practical Guidance modules to its expanding collection: Planning for Health Plan Open Enrollment and Minimizing Fiduciary Liability. These popular modules help companies and attorneys comply with ERISA and ACA requirements for employer health and retirement plans.
