Legal Transaction Management
A Better Way to Run Your Transactions

Hosting A Deal in Transact

If you are the host law firm (acting for buyer or lender) –

    You will set up a Transact workspace based on the documents checklist for your deal.
    As the deal progresses, you can simply log on to see the status of the deal, or any individual item. You can search for individual checklist items, or filter to see ,for example, all the “Outstanding” documents.
    You’ll invite opposing firms, clients and third parties to join the workspace, applying access restrictions as required.
    As the deal progresses, updating the checklist is easy as items progress from outstanding to satisfied.
    All participants track real-time status and use search and filters to quickly find checklist items and files. The checklist can also be sent in PDF or Word format to anyone choosing not to access Transact.
    Relevant files e.g. draft versions of agreements are uploaded to individual checklist items. The latest version is clearly marked. With a simple upload, every file is organized for everyone’s benefit for the duration of the deal.
    At the closing, lawyers can assign versions as execution versions and signature pages and schedules can be collected.
    Finally, the bible or closing binder can be created quickly and easily using Transact’s in-built editor tool.

Joining deals as an invited participant

If you are invited into a deal as a client or other third party –

    You will receive an email invitation to join the deal, which you can accept by quickly setting up a password for your Workshare account.
    As the deal progresses, you can simply log on to see the status of the deal, or any individual item. You can search for individual checklist items, or filter to see ,for example, all the “Outstanding” documents.
    You can track activity in the Timeline, and select to receive email notifications or digests letting you know when new versions and comments have been uploaded.
    If you need to upload files, they can be added easily in the drop-down area on each item in the checklist. You’ll easily be able to find and reference those for the duration of the deal.

Closing Out The Deal

Closing the deal –

    During the closing of the deal, execution versions, signature pages and schedules can be collected into position in the Transact checklist.
    Transact tracks signatures uploaded, giving a clear view of what’s outstanding to close.
    As checklist items are completed, they can be marked as “Satisfied” by the host firm until everything is in place.

Creating the closing binder –

    Post-closing, fully executed copies of documents can be created quickly in Transact’s built-in PDF editor.
    A bulk download of all final versions, together with a styled, branded, hyperlinked index provides everything you need to create a CD bible / closing binder for your client – there’s no reason not to deliver within 48 hours of closing.
    With everything wrapped up quickly, the lawyer is free to focus on the next deal.
