NEW YORK – June 26, 2018 – Intralinks, the world's leading Virtual Data Room (VDR) provider, and Axiom, the leading global alternative legal services provider which has supported more than $500 billion in corporate transactions, today announced that they have formed an alliance to provide new and existing clients innovative solutions for buy and sell-side due diligence and post-merger integration.

The alliance builds on Intralinks strategy of developing a suite of best-in-class services for deals.  Alligning with Axiom further complements Intralinks’ growing partner ecosystem, leveraging Axiom’s talent and technology to accelerate contract review, unearth deal synergies and provide critical business insights. 

“Our alliance with Axiom enables in-house counsel to leverage services from premier market leaders in managed legal services and VDRs for their strategic transactions,” said Leif O’Leary, CEO of Intralinks. “Combining Axiom’s Contracts Intelligence Platform with Intralinks’ VDRs will provide enhanced insights into transactional diligence and help our mutual clients identify and address risks, and close their deal faster.”

Axiom’s Contracts Intelligence Platform is a purpose-built solution which uses state-of-the-art technology to speed the contract review process, reveal potential deal synergies and provide business-critical information in a clear, user-friendly portal. Axiom’s solution accelerates contract review using artificial intelligence to collect and identify relevant clauses, then leverages experienced legal professionals to ensure data accuracy and interpret contractual language into structured, measurable data fields.

The alliance will create efficiencies in corporate transactions by:

  • Reducing the diligence timeline by increasing transparency to bidders on select key contracts
  • Accelerating and improving integration outcomes by identifying critical synergy opportunities resident in contracts
  • Leveraging the security and permissions of Intralinks to ensure protection of sensitive and confidential data

Coupling that with the security our clients associate with Intralinks to protect confidential data is a win for all parties in a transaction and sets the gold standard for how all deals should get done.”
