–Michelle Mahoney, Director, Legal Logistics at King & Wood Mallesons
For the last ten years, King & Wood Mallesons has been using an in-house solution to exchange documents during M&A deals. Additionally, in order to support the firm’s recent combination with Chinese law firm King & Wood, the firm required foreign language capability as well as enhanced security features to respond to client requests.
King & Wood Mallesons’ in-house system had limitations when supporting large- scale virtual data rooms. The firm realized that if it wanted to gain competitive advantage, it needed a cost-effective solution that shortened the time it took to get large-scale virtual data rooms up and running — as well as offering the features clients required. It needed foreign language capability, 24 hour support and flexible security options in an easy-to-use solution.
King & Wood Mallesons quickly discovered that a software as-a-service (SaaS) platform provides access to applications, and data from a range of devices. It also has broad capacity for data upload; all of which, help to drive efficiencies. After a thorough evaluation process, King & Wood Mallesons chose Intralinks based on its feature rich solution and market reputation.
King & Wood Mallesons is enjoying improved efficiency. The firm is now able to allocate fewer resources for uploading documents to support its M&A deals, reducing its operational costs. With the firm’s enhanced service offering harnessing the power of Intralinks, King & Wood Mallesons continues to lead the way in providing world-class, innovative solutions for its clients.
