“Having a central and transparent collection of completion materials that can be accessed by all parties results in significant time and – critically – client cost savings.

Challenge

Tasked with the management of an IPO that involved three law firms on three continents and a dual listing on a strict deadline, HopgoodGanim required an “all in one” global solution to facilitate task management, collaboration and secure file sharing.

Experience

HopgoodGanim made full use of thedocyard’s integrated task management and collaborative tools to manage numerous work streams and to connect with stakeholders, even over the Christmas holiday period.

Using thedocyard as the ‘single source of truth’ where tasks and document reviews were undertaken consecutively around the world, teams no longer required catch-up meetings, phone calls or time-consuming emails

Impact

thedocyard makes the entire deal considerably more transparent and demonstrates how HopgoodGanim use their time in the right places to manage deals through as quickly as possible.

It’s providing their clients with an unprecedented visibility and transparency to not only see the deal progress but also assist on the transaction.

Archaic processes are replaced with one that aggregates documents automatically,
streamlining the completion process and reducing the administrative overheads typically associated with this part of a deal.
