Legal transaction management is a tool that allows lawyers to manage legal transactions more efficiently, which saves time and money. This lets lawyers concentrate on the legal issues that confront their clients, and it also helps reduce a range of expenses, including associates being unable to spend hours on work that is not needed, logistics (courier services, catering, travel, paper storage, etc.), incurred due to slower transactions, and IT costs.
Legal transactions are the foundation of business transactions and are governed by numerous laws. They include lease agreements, contracts for the creation of security interests, agreements for loan agreements and promissory notes as well as filings with government agencies, assignment of rights or title proxy agreements, insurance policies, and more. These documents require extensive drafting and an understanding of all legal transactional laws.
