Legal Notice System Data
DTCC’s Legal Notice System (LENS) Data provides a comprehensive, searchable library, updated daily, of legal notices concerning DTC-eligible securities that are published and furnished by third-party agents, courts and security issuers.
DTCC is one of the most comprehensive repositories of legal notices in the U.S. Every day issuers, agents and courts produce an abundance of securities-related notices that are sent directly to DTCC. These notices include everything from bankruptcies and defaults, to class actions and 19(a) tax information. The LENS Portal grants clients access to the notices in their original, unaltered, document shortly after they become available to DTCC. These notices enable clients to keep themselves and their clients informed, maintain critical compliance, identify investment opportunities, and provide better customer service.
