Latham & Watkins LLP has produced a trifecta of iPhone apps based on hard copy resources previously published by the firm under the “Book of Jargon” title. The current current apps address the following areas:

These applications provide definitions to corporate and bank finance slang and terminology, including slang terms as well as legal and regulatory terminologies and acronyms. Content in the apps are not static; as new terms and definitions are published, the  content is updated automatically.

In a press release, Alex Cohen, Global Co-Chair of the Capital Markets Practice Group, said:

The Book of JargonTM app allows for key information to be readily available wherever you may be and whenever you may need it. And it does so in the highly intuitive way we’ve come to expect from the best iPhone apps. That’s what makes it so useful.

While the nature of these apps is pretty simple, LMF commends Latham for making their existing resources more accessible to clients with the application of mobile technologies.
