Bloomberg is Your Friend

Help! I have to draft something!

Drafting transactional documents can be scary. Thankfully, there are plenty of helpful resources out there!

  • First, check with your employer to see if they have a database of exemplars. Many attorneys and firms maintain collections of example contracts, agreements, or even single clauses for themselves or other attorneys to use when drafting similar documents.
  • Search for real examples of over 600 types of transactional documents using Bloomberg Law's Transactional Precedent database.
  • You can also use fill-in-the-blank templates called forms. Forms can often be found in subject-specific practice guides, but Lexis and Westlaw both offer useful form-finding resources.
