Kira is Partnering With Intralinks to Provide A Complete Due Diligence Solution

Posted on April 16, 2015 by Noah Waisberg

As an M&A lawyer, I did due diligence and supervised it. From that experience, I know that virtual data rooms are central to the M&A process. An early step in a company putting itself up for sale is loading documents into a VDR, so that deal teams can learn what they need to about the target.

While there are a lot of companies that offer VDR functionality, Intralinks stands out; it is a dominant player for good reason. Intralinks originated the VDR market and have stayed at the leading edge of it technologically. They are fully focused on M&A, and know it deeply. They are also a core part of of being a junior M&A professional: I suspect that many lawyers and bankers have learned they were staffed on a new deal from receiving an automated message from Intralinks that have been added to a new Dealspace.

Intralinks is the leading place to store diligence documents; Kira Diligence Engine is the fastest and most accurate way to review and analyze diligence documents. Together, M&A professionals can do better reviews in less time, and with less pain. This complete storage to review offering is great for users. In the words of Matt Porzio, vice president of strategy and product marketing at Intralinks, “Together, Intralinks Dealspace and Kira Diligence Engine help ensure high-stakes transactions are brought to a fast close. The partnership will save our customers time and expense and help prevent costly human error during due diligence.”

We couldn't be happier about this combined offering. Click here to read the full press release about the partnership.

DiligenceEngine is now Kira!

Posted on March 10, 2015 by Noah Waisberg

Prior to co-founding DiligenceEngine, I was an M&A lawyer at a leading New York City firm. I did due diligence contract review myself, I supervised due diligence, and I spoke with people at other firms who did and supervised due diligence. Based on this experience, I realized there was a better way to do due diligence contract review, got together with Alex (who has a PhD in computer science from a leading program), and we set to work under the "DiligenceEngine" banner. "DiligenceEngine" perfectly fit what we were building: our software helped lawyers do due diligence contract review faster and more accurately. We have seen real use of our system as a diligence tool:

DiligenceEngine Covered in Lawyerist

Posted on February 25, 2015 by Noah Waisberg

I've been a longtime reader of Lawyerist, and it was very nice to get to walk Sam Glover through trying our system. M&A due diligence contract review is not something he's ever had to do, but he got how there are lots of instances when lawyers review contracts to extract data, and how our system could help with these. He found DiligenceEngine "really a pleasure to use." Here's his nice writeup:
