Global Business Law Goes Mobile
New solution inspired by needs of commercial and in-house lawyers.
The new solution, Global Business Law, is a native iPad app that will connect practitioners to the law in 160 countries and in 46 different practice areas. Its creation was inspired by the needs of 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.
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, but offers them in a more slick and interactive format that’s designed specifically for the iPad. Rich in color 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 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.
“The launch of Global Business Law is consistent with our goal of providing customers with superior mobile-oriented products that support the way they want to work,” said UK-based Chris Hendry, head of advanced media at Thomson Reuters. “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”.
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.
