Magic Circle law firm Linklaters has deployed DocuSign‘s Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform firm -wide following a successful trial with several lawyers and clients.
Linklaters hopes to eliminate the hassles and costs of printing, faxing, scanning and overnighting documents for signing, with the DTM platform providing a faster, easier, more convenient and secure transaction experience.
"Completing a signing in the traditional way can be a lengthy process, whereas through DocuSign, with the click of a mouse or the tap of a tablet or smart phone, it can be reduced to minutes, whilst maintaining the formality and security of a signing," said Mark Nuttall, a London finance partner at Linklaters.
Suited to the legal market, DocuSigned documents are tamper-evident and provide both the law firm and its clients with an audit trail that shows who signed what, when and where.
"Client feedback has been extremely positive, both in respect of the speedier and more convenient alternative to traditional methods that the technology provides, and in relation to the security that it affords," said Nuttall.
