Wolters Kluwer Integrates Legislative Tracking into Cheetah

The Federal Developments Knowledge Center allows users to track legislative and regulatory activity by area of law on Cheetah practice area dashboards

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., today announced the integration of its Federal Developments Knowledge Center (FDKC) with its award-winning CheetahTM platform. The easy-to-use FDKC platform has been enhanced with a range of new features and is now available on 18 practice area dashboards on Cheetah. The integration will help users monitor all newly issued executive actions, proposed bills and rules, enacted laws and final rules in real time across more than 800 agencies and sub-agencies of the federal government.

FDKC’s integration with Cheetah allows users to access even deeper expertise within their workflow, providing the ability to search, get alerts, and receive daily news and updates for all types of federal bills, proposed and final regulations and executive actions in a single platform. With FDKC, legal professionals have the ability to customize and monitor specific topics in real time to advise their clients on new opportunities, mitigate risk and offer strategic counsel. By integrating FDKC by practice area, legal professionals can research current laws and regulations and potential legislative changes all in one place. The result is a greater ability to understand and advise clients about existing laws and potential changes to laws.

“The volume of executive, legislative and regulatory information created at the federal level continues to increase, and with a change in administration on the horizon, monitoring relevant government activity will become an even more time consuming and challenging task for legal professionals,” said Ken Crutchfield, Vice President and General Manager of Legal Markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “The newly integrated legislative tracking capabilities now available at a practice area level in Cheetah provides legal professionals with tools to cut through hundreds of updates, and get exactly the information they need to effectively advise their clients about the potential impact of changes to laws and regulations.”

Features of FDKC integrated with Cheetah include:

  • Real-time alerts: Customizable alerts on legislation, rules and executive actions through FDKC can significantly reduce time spent on research;
  • Source documents: FDKC provides quick access to source documents from Congress, the executive branch, and federal agencies; and
  • Practice area-specific alerts: Users can access synopses, impacts, and next step analyses on legislation, rules and actions curated by Wolters Kluwer’s deep domain experts.
