Automating SEC Compliance

CCH's interactive software aids the information-gathering process.

NEW PRACTICE system software that automates and guides users through all aspects of Securities Exchange Commission filings--from research to compliance--has been released by CCH Incorporated of Riverwoods, Ill. The company's SEC Compliance Assistant is interactive software that takes counsel through the information gathering process with a series of question-and-answer interview sessions, and allows lawyers to import data from earlier filings.

The Compliance Assistant also generates proxy statements; the 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K letters to shareholders; and other documents, ensuring consistency and accuracy with past disclosure and across multiple filings. It offers calendars, project plans and checklists to keep track of all dates, tasks, people and documents needed to assure compliance. Word processing and spreadsheet files can be linked to documents, eliminating retyping and ensuring automatic updating.

SkyTel 2-Way Paging Provides Secure Document Exchange Shepardizing Cases on Disc

SHEPARD'S/McGraw-Hill has unveiled its QUICK START program that allows lawyers to Shepardize cases on CD-ROM.

The electronic process, according to the company, does not require the lawyer to know the full name and citation in order to research a case. According to the Colorado Springs company, lawyers can type in the citation of a case, or, if they do not have the citation, they can enter all or part of the case name (either party).

The results of a search include case name, citing court, and judge information. The company's editorial letters and headnote assignments are spelled out and placed so they are easy to read, Shepards reports.
