Osler Works – Transactional

It’s simply better. Here’s why.

Osler Works – Transactional leads the way in delivering corporate and commercial transaction solutions.

By pairing the expertise of our specialized team of lawyers and business professionals with innovative legal technologies, we deliver better outcomes, improved efficiencies and lower, predictable legal fees. The result is customized, end-to-end transaction guidance and support.

What does this look like in practice? That depends on the situation.

For some, it may mean due diligence support throughout the course of a complex acquisition or IPO. For others, it could include the review of a portfolio of leases so that the risks are uncovered and understood. In other cases, it may be the provision of an end-to-end financing solution that involves the generation and negotiation of a suite of financing documents, use of legal transaction management software to close the deal and a portal to easily compare deal over deal.  

Ultimately, clients benefit from the best of both worlds: the efficient, cost-effective provision of services Osler Works – Transactional makes possible and the bespoke legal counsel they’ve come to expect from Osler.

Changing the landscape

Osler Works – Transactional, our in-house ALSP for transactions, focuses on providing high quality work at a lower price by combining our team’s expert knowledge of complex transactions with cutting-edge processes and technologies that improve efficiencies and offer a host of business advantages. This isn’t simply technology for technology’s sake. Rather, we take a considered approach and only apply these solutions when it makes sense to do so. Osler Works – Transactional is particularly effective on certain types of deals that we act on frequently and on complex transactions with high-volume core components, such as contract analysis and review (including due diligence), agreement generation and negotiation, closings, document automation, and compliance and entity management.
