HopgoodGanim, like many law firms, had been exploring ways in which they could respond to market pressure, continue to be competitive and reduce risk.


The team had identified areas, including deal completion, which they wanted make as efficient and robust as possible; allowing them to confidently offer fixed fee estimates where certain work required it and enter into more complex tenders.


In addressing this competitive problem head on, they would simultaneously reduce wastage on lost fees and mitigate risk. thedocyard presented them with a solution which solved all of these problems in one solution.

Experience of thedocyard

Data rooms can be cost-prohibitive on some deals and represent a solution to just one problem. thedocyard’s competitively priced, fully-integrated VDR along with the range of deal management features is a big plus.


The Customer Success Team ensured platform adoption was seamless and interactive ‘help’ functions meant anyone on the team was able to quickly use the platform.


Having real-time Help Desk support alongside online help, ensures that the deal runs at the pace it needs to, with no hold ups.

Impact and outcome

thedocyard makes the entire deal considerably more transparent and demonstrates how HopgoodGanim use their time in the right places to manage deals through as quickly as possible.


It’s providing their clients with an unprecedented visibility and transparency to not only see the deal progress but also assist on the transaction.


Archaic processes are replaced with one that aggregates documents automatically,
streamlining the completion process and reducing the administrative overheads typically associated with this part of a deal.
