Profit from the flexibility to do more. With Bloomberg Law DocketsSM, you’ll quickly find the dockets that affect your clients and their business. Get unlimited searching and alerts of the dockets and the underlying documents—such as complaints, briefs and orders—that are loaded on Bloomberg Law. Our full integration of news, company information, opinions and patents gives you greater context of the issues you’re researching.
BENEFIT FROM COVERAGE WITHOUT BORDERS
Your business sometimes extends beyond the U.S., so you need coverage that does too. In addition to federal and selected state dockets, Bloomberg Law gives you access to dockets for the U.K., the Cayman Islands, the E.U., Hong Kong and more.
STAY AHEAD WITH BREAKING COMPLAINTS
Be among the first to know about key market-moving complaints with Breaking Complaints. Our in-court researchers monitor selected courts, posting complaints for important cases in real time, sometimes before they’re available on any public site.
GAIN FROM UNRESTRICTED SEARCHES AND ALERTS
Monitor new actions, identify business opportunities, conduct due diligence and expand your research in federal, state and international courts. Employ our unrestricted and powerful search and alert capabilities for court dockets and filings that are loaded on the system.
With Docket Search, you can use whatever keywords you have or make the search more targeted by entering information in fields such as courts, docket number and judge. When you choose to search the dockets of a federal district or bankruptcy court, you get specific fielded search options to match, such as nature of suit and ranges of assets and liabilities. Plus, you can run a quick docket search from anywhere on the system using the <GO> Bar in the orange banner.
Remain up to date on dockets by setting an alert that locks in your search criteria, so you’re notified automatically of any new dockets that match them. Share your alert with colleagues you select so everyone is on the same page.
TRACK DOCKETS AND RETRIEVE DOCUMENTS WITH EASE AND EFFICIENCY
Get updates to the dockets that matter most to you. Tell Bloomberg Law what to retrieve for you and we will do so cost effectively and quickly. Set up tracks on the dockets that interest you and we will get the changes to the docket sheet and email you them automatically.
GET INSIGHTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Bloomberg Law Dockets make it easy to find example documents and discover new business opportunities. Unrestricted fielded searches and filters on results lists help you isolate example documents to see, for example, what strategies have been successful before a particular judge. What’s more, the speed of Breaking Complaints, combined with the power of alerts, means you might know about a suit even before the defendants do, giving you the opportunity to wow potential clients. Whether you’re managing a case, performing research or pursuing new business, Dockets gives you the freedom to be proactive.
