CCH Creates Web News Center for Financial Crisis

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., January 22, 2009) – CCH, a part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business (, has created a one-stop, online resource for tracking legal and financial developments related to the ongoing financial crisis. The CCH Financial Crisis News Center has been carefully developed by a staff of attorney-analysts to provide the legal community and others with a cohesive and robust selection of breaking news stories, analysis and links to the full text of source documents for regulatory actions. As such, the web site is a comprehensive central repository for vital and timely information that spans multiple practice areas. Updated throughout the day with the latest information, the site provides headlines from major news sources with links to the articles as well as tracks ongoing legal and financial developments on this wide-ranging crisis along with the multiple responses from lawmakers and regulatory agencies.

“We provide unparalleled, broad coverage of the crisis in all its dimensions, primarily from a banking and securities regulation vantage point, but with access to multiple information sources. The ability to track information over time by topic and by agency or other organization provides easy and logical access to the wide array of disparate information regarding the crisis,” said Susan Chazin, Associate Publisher. “We’re tying together all of our coverage with external news sources and across a multitude of agencies and regulators to organize this critical information into one central location.”

An additional retrieval feature allows visitors to browse developments on a month-to-month basis. A “CCH Subscriber Resources” page serves as a central entry point for CCH banking and securities law resources related to the crisis.
