Transactional Services


In a corporate setting, routine practices—like the everyday tasks devoted to transactional, commercial and corporate compliance—often begin to feel mundane, when in fact they are critical to the ongoing success of your business.

Understanding the importance of these needs, our cost-effective McDermott Transactional Services team combines McDermott-quality staff attorneys with sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) review tools to manage transactional due diligence, contract negotiation and contract management. We break down corporate legal processes to find all routine, high-volume activities that can be performed for the greatest value using AI—maximizing efficiency without sacrificing quality.
