Draft Analyzer is a drafting workflow tool for transactional attorneys that uses a proprietary algorithm to benchmark the user’s submitted text against similar provisions from agreements filed as exhibits in the SEC’s EDGAR database. The new enhancements for merger agreements include easy access to market standard language for clauses in the agreement, a new user interface to speed up document navigation and review, the ability to quickly review definitions for all terms defined in the agreement, and clause-specific expert drafting and negotiating guidance.

The enhanced Draft Analyzer increases efficiency in output for M&A attorneys at law firms and corporations by reducing the hours spent reviewing drafts and searching for language in similar deals. 85% of beta testers agreed that Draft Analyzer will reduce time spent reviewing and analyzing a merger agreement, and 97% agreed that it will help reduce time spent identifying standard language.

In the coming months, the Draft Analyzer enhancements – currently limited to merger agreements – will be expanded to include stock and asset purchase agreements as well.

“We know that reviewing, drafting, and negotiating agreements are part of transactional attorneys’ day-to-day practice, and the newest enhancements to Draft Analyzer allow users to save time and effort,” said Joe Breda, president of Bloomberg Law. “Draft Analyzer joins Brief Analyzer and other innovative Bloomberg Law resources that increase efficiency, all on a single platform and for a single price.”
