I really enjoy the docket alerts. I set alerts for all group companies as well as competitors and those in similar industries. This allows me to get a jump on planning a defense before we are even served and allows me to track trends in litigation across our industry.
Corporate Counsel, Rakuten
Bloomberg Law's docket search capabilities are unmatched by any of its competing databases. The fact that it has such wide state court coverage, and its various and specific search fields make Bloomberg my first stop when searching for cases. I also appreciate the automatic updates for dockets in certain courts, such as the Delaware Chancery Court.
Law Firm Librarian, Fox Rothschild
The Dockets Search function has saved me hours within a day of researching. Previously I would have to scour through PACER dockets (after finding relevant language within a court opinion or case pleading available on a competing product) and had no ability to search across dockets. This has been a life saver in my practice and there is no other product out there that even compares.
