LinkSquares today (2 June) unveiled its new pre-signature contract generation solution that turns LinkSquares contract management platform into a contract lifecycle management platform.

The launch of LinkSquares Finalize means that legal, sales, HR, procurement, marketing and other internal stakeholders can now use LinkSquares to draft, review and approve contracts through the platform.

It builds on existing post-signature AI insights solution, LinkSquares Analyze, through which in-house legal teams are able to standardize and collaborate on the contract creation process.

“The legal department plays a critical role working hand-in-hand with the business in structuring, negotiating and closing deals,” said Tim Parilla, DraftKings’ long-time general counsel. “LinkSquares’ addition of the pre-signature tool helps to provide stronger speed and structure in the early stages of the contract lifecycle, facilitating a data-driven approach to crafting and negotiating consistent standard terms, allowing the deal team to focus on open business issues and getting to the finish line in a much more organized and efficient manner.” 

LinkSquares’ SOC 2 Type II certification means contract data is secure with enterprise-level controls built into each step of the contract management process.

Danielle Sheer, general counsel for Bottomline Technologies said, “Modern legal teams must match the agility, efficiency and customer-first mentality of our business partners. LinkSquares Finalize automates the lifecycle of a contract in a streamlined and simple manner, provides transparency into the contracting process, and integrates beautifully with the LinkSquares AI solution, as well as other systems within a company network. No feature bloat, no multi-month custom setup process – finally, a 21st-century CLM for the in-house legal team.”
