This new tool enables Linklaters’ lawyers to manage and track all stages of a DD process in one place, from changes in the VDR, allocating documents for review, to collecting questions and managing the Q&A process, through to producing the final report. Clients benefit from an interface with unique risk profile visualisation, easy information access as well as progress monitoring options.
Following a successful pilot programme, ReportiQ is already fully operational in Germany and Belgium, and is currently being rolled out across all Linklaters jurisdictions with the UK, U.S., Sweden, Italy and Spain next in line. The firm provides in-depth specialist expertise and integrated solutions for our clients; deploying the right resources on matters at the right stage; to save time, drive efficiencies, increase service quality and maximise client experience.
By using new technology, the platform sets itself apart as it can be customised to give clients a bespoke experience depending in their business’s needs. The platform contains all the information about the transaction in one place and allows the whole deal team to make changes at the same time, speeding up the review and consolidation process, and positioning the firm’s clients in the strongest position to react quickly and confidently to any issues that arise which is particularly useful in a bidding process.
Linklaters advised a leading industrials client on a recent acquisition. The multi-jurisdictional team involved lawyers from Germany, the UK, Italy, Belgium and Spain. Throughout the transaction ReportiQ was used throughout the DD process, which streamlined the process and placed the client in the best position ahead of the bidding process.
