LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®) announced that Linklaters, a leading global law firm, has deployed DocuSign's Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform and industry-leading eSignature solution to support clients with a faster, easier, more convenient and secure transaction experience. DocuSign is helping Linklaters eliminate the hassles and costs of printing, faxing, scanning and overnighting documents for signing.
"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," according to Mark Nuttall, a London finance partner at Linklaters.
Linklaters is deploying DocuSign firm-wide following a successful pilot of the DTM platform and eSignature technology with several lawyers and their clients. "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," furthered Nuttall. 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.
"DocuSign has emerged as the global standard for Digital Transaction Management as GCs and firm lawyers around the world have standardized on DocuSign to improve the speed, ease and cost at which they can serve their customers – be they inhouse or clients," said Reggie Davis, General Counsel at DocuSign. "DocuSign has helped GCs and lawyers go fully digital to eliminate the paper chase and focus their time on what matters most; serving clients."
