Developed with extensive input on content and structure from corporate counsel, the Corporate Practice Center enables attorneys to manage a variety of functions quickly and efficiently, such as drafting policies and form agreements, developing workflow strategies for their department and building and running effective compliance programs.
Ethics and compliance are major areas of focus for general counsel, with 74 percent of respondents rating ethics and compliance a top challenge according to the Association of Corporate Counsel Chief Legal Officers 2017 Survey. To meet these needs, the new practice center features comprehensive practical guidance materials, including overviews, checklists, annotated forms and documents and comparison surveys developed by attorneys at major U.S. corporations and their outside counsel. It incorporates compliance content authored by the in-house legal department at U.S. Steel Corporation, providing users with step-by-step guidance on benchmarking, building and maintaining a corporate compliance program, providing unique perspectives and tools for sustained compliance initiatives.
"Our team was very pleased to collaborate with Bloomberg Law and contribute substantive content to the redesign of the Corporate Practice Center," said Suzanne Rich Folsom, General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, and Senior Vice President – Government Affairs at U.S. Steel. "In today's environment of intensely heightened enforcement activity, it is imperative that companies have an effective corporate compliance program. Most organizations have limited resources to expend; therefore, whether you are responsible for an existing compliance and ethics program, or you have been tasked with establishing a compliance function from the ground up, there are always lessons that can be learned from those who have successfully created, implemented and led such programs."
The Corporate Practice Center's offerings also include a prioritized set of sample form agreements and policies covering the tasks that in-house attorneys deal with regularly and for which sample templates are often needed. For legal departments' business needs, a wealth of materials authored by in-house counsel are available to help department heads effectively structure and run their operations.
"The Corporate Practice Center was redesigned to provide general counsel and their teams with the content they need to effectively run their departments, to advise clients, executives and the board and develop world-class compliance programs," said Alex Butler, Vice President & General Manager of Corporate, Tech & IP for Bloomberg Law. "Our new suites of practical guidance take users from start to finish through important tasks and are seamlessly intertwined with the other valuable content and practice tools on the Bloomberg Law platform."
The new Corporate Practice Center, as with all Bloomberg Law enhancements to tools and content, is available at no additional cost to existing clients.
