Law Street Media, the legal news service owned by Fastcase, is adding coverage of mergers, acquisitions and financings, using data and documents provided by Matterhorn Transactions, a company that provides comprehensive databases, analyses, and reports of publicly filed transactional information.

This adds transactional news to Law Street Media’s existing litigation-focused coverage of technology, agriculture and health law.

As with Law Street Media’s litigation coverage, which provides free links to underlying litigation documents drawn from Docket Alarm (also owned by Fastcase), the new M&A coverage will include free links to underlying deal documents, derived from Matterhorn.

In addition to news coverage of deals, Matterhorn’s CEO Logan Beirne, who is also a lecturer at Yale Law School, will contribute weekly insights to Law Street Media, highlighting notable deals and terms.

“For years, we’ve worked with Docket Alarm as an unparalleled and timely source of litigation news, with free links to source dockets,” said Law Street Media Editor-in-Chief David Nayer. “In the same way, Matterhorn will serve as a must-have news source within Law Street Media for transactional lawyers, with free access to the underlying deal documents.”

The M&A articles will be available on Law Street’s website as well as by newsletter. To receive notification of Beirne’s articles or for free subscription to any of Law Street Media’s newsletters, you can sign up here.

Fastcase launched Law Street Media in January 2020 with the goal of enabling readers to track legal news by industries, companies, law firms, and litigation.
