The CDA database can help lawyers by:
1. Preventing a court from refusing to supply information about a particular court matter due to "fishing" grounds when too broad a request is made.
2. Identifying court matters a potential new (or old) client might have been involved in. This of course also extends to the other party in any litigated matters.
3. As part of any due diligence inquiries undertaken on behalf of a client.
4. Due diligence areas of the firm's practice, particularly when dealing with other businesses such as contractors and suppliers.
5. Professional disciplinary action against a person by a professional body via a state Civil Administration Tribunal or similar body.
Alerts can be created in the CDA Database for a person's name or a that of a business.
After creating an Alert, you will receive an email whenever a future record for that same name is added to the database.
This is an ideal option if you want to keep track of any new records for one or more people and/or companies.
