on that promise by creating one of the most powerful products in

community, with new content being added regularly. Highlights

professionals rely on for timely, critical information,
including the “must have” Daily Labor Report, the Daily Tax
Report, the Daily Report for Executives and The United States
Law Week

“One of Bloomberg’s hallmarks is to consistently add value in a
way that best meets the needs of our clients,” said Lou
Andreozzi, Chairman of Bloomberg Law. “When we set out to
integrate BNA’s trusted content, we listened closely to what
Bloomberg Law and BNA clients had to say. We are proud to
deliver a product designed to meet, in the best possible way,
the needs of the modern law practice.”

“For 80 years, BNA has provided unparalleled content written by
our experienced editors and thought leaders in the profession.
With Bloomberg Law, for the first time, BNA content has been
truly integrated into a legal research system,” said Greg
McCaffery, CEO and President of Bloomberg BNA. “The marriage of
great technology and great content will provide exponential
value to users.”

Bloomberg BNA content is integrated into Bloomberg Law with
links to underlying primary sources including opinions, dockets,
statutes and regulations. Users can also easily access content
using Bloomberg Law’s innovative search functions. New and
expanded Practice Centers incorporate Bloomberg BNA’s deep
expertise and analysis with Bloomberg Law’s comprehensive legal
resources, company and market information. Bloomberg Law has
also streamlined navigation and enhanced the visibility of key

access any of the information in the system – from BNA’s legal
coverage to Bloomberg’s proprietary news to dockets to primary
legal research – as often as they want and whenever they want.”
