“For younger associates in particular, [Practical Guidance] gives them a level of comfort when they’re doing their work that they can now start drafting, come back to their partner, and not be afraid that they are going to be called out for relying on something that wasn’t reliable.”

“Bloomberg Law’s Practical Guidance helps us complete work with efficiency, accuracy, and confidence. It significantly reduces the amount of time it takes us to complete legal work in-house and thus reduces our annual spend on outside counsel.”
