Today's Tip - Searching for real legal documents in Bloomberg Law's DealMaker Documents

Law firm associates are frequently asked to prepare legal documents in connection with mergers, joint ventures, securities offerings and other corporate transactions. When preparing a document for the first time, a real example agreement can serve as a valuable drafting tool. Bloomberg Law's DealMaker Document database contains over 200,000 legal documents used by leading law firms in real transactions. You can search for asset purchase, credit, merger and many other types of agreements using a variety of criteria, including:

  • Document Type
  • Governing Law
  • Keyword
  • Law Firm
  • Industry

The database also includes a Find Clauses feature, which allows you to search for specific clauses found in the DealMaker documents.

To access the DealMaker database from the Bloomberg Law main screen, click on the Transactional Law tab and then select DealMaker Documents from the pull-down menu.

UNC Law faculty and students can request a Bloomberg Law password.
