Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of a comprehensive mobile solution for lawyers working on complex, multi-jurisdictional transactions. Global Business Law, is a native iPad app that will connect practitioners to the law in 160 countries and in 46 different practice areas.
The new mobile solution is aimed at lawyers working in commercial law, or in international corporations, who spend time on transactions with a cross-border element for which they need an overview of laws and regulations in unfamiliar jurisdictions.
The launch of the new solution comes at a time when lawyers in large law firms and global corporations are looking to mobile technology to help make their work more portable and efficient. As a result, tablets and other mobile devices have come to play an increasingly vital role in areas such as legal research, email, scheduling and a host of other daily functions. The Global Business Law mobile solution can now feature as part of this sophisticated mobile office and help lawyers to navigate increasingly complex transactions and disputes whether they are on the move, in the office, or in meetings.
Featuring content from the renowned Getting the Deal Through series, published by Law Business Research Limited, the Global Business Law solution takes the most important legal and regulatory matters that arise in business deals and disputes worldwide, and offers them in a digital, interactive format designed specifically for the iPad. Rich in colour and movement, the mobile solution brings lawyers a new level of user experience, as well as content that can be filtered via an interactive map by region, jurisdiction and practice area, and presented in a simple question and answer format.
The Global Business Law solution allows lawyers to instantly tap into a wealth of knowledge from experienced practitioners at the touch of a screen, enabling them to quickly make sense of local laws in specific practice areas, and to represent their clients’ international interests with a sharper focus.
“The launch of the Global Business Law solution is consistent with our goal of providing customers with superior mobile oriented products that support the way they want to work,” said Chris Hendry, head of advanced media at Thomson Reuters legal business in the UK. “This new solution not only gives lawyers access to invaluable content in a highly convenient format, but ultimately, it helps support the legal profession’s drive for greater efficiency”.
Global Business Law includes content covering 160 countries and 46 practice areas, including key areas such dispute resolution, labour and employment law, mergers & acquisitions and anti-corruption, as well as industry specific areas such as electricity regulation, pharmaceutical anti-trust and more.
The mobile app, complete with content on merger control, is free to download from Apple’s App Store and additional content can be bought for $74.99/£49.99 per practice area, via an in-app purchase. To download the App or learn more, visit www.sweetandmaxwell.co.uk/globalbusinesslaw
