 “Transact enhances our legal project management offering and has given us the capability to offer a more collaborative and transparent approach to working on transactions with clients and opposing counsel. Transact has helped to streamline our conditions precedent process and facilitate quick and seamless transaction closings for all stakeholders. For example, the online transaction checklist allows parties concerned to review the most up to date progress of deal closing items at any time, meaning deal closing calls can be more focussed and productive.
