Introduction to Company Research

Company research involves locating pertinent information regarding an organization's leadership, key personnel, structure, organizational relationships, business and product lines, financials, and legal proceedings.  Attorneys from many different practice areas, not just corporate attorneys, make use of this information.  This research guide will introduce students to the resources and methodologies involved in researching publicly-traded, privately-held, and non-profit companies. 


Why Research Companies?

Effective client representation can extend beyond conducting purely legal research.  Company information can be relevant to numerous different legal situations.  For example, It can help ensure that clients make informed when launching or investing in a business venture, negotiating contracts, or making charitable contributions.  If appropriate, including this information in your analysis and presenting it to your client is part of your due diligence responsibility.
