Risk and compliance management for your legal department

Never miss a deadline

Supervising legal collaborations, the status of outsourced legal counsel, and any other obligations to ensure no deadlines are missed is critical to the well-being of any business.

However, staying on top of things may not always be feasible for small legal teams and in house counsel dealing with multiple tasks simultaneously.

  • Provide restricted remote access to internal and external stakeholders
  • Invite internal clients or external lawyers to collaborate on documents
  • Communicate using shared documents, deliverables, or shared comments
  • Send reminders and documents to internal clients
  • Download an entire matter to share it with internal clients or external law firms
  • Access key aspects of your matters from a single dashboard: including matters by business unit, internal client, project manager, work type, urgency, and matter type
  • Receive real-time notifications and updates for pending and ongoing tasks for in-house legal teams and outside counsel
  • Create records of historical legal data
  • Improve business processes
  • Make reports to track ROI of outsourced tasks

Integrate Matters, emails and documents

Secure, cloud-based storage

Legal teams receive and send hundreds of emails daily. Without a structured approach to email management, handling inboxes can be overwhelming. Important documents, communications, and attachments may be lost or unsearchable, particularly if a team member leaves the organization. With Dazychain, critical information, communication and documents are stored in a single, centralized location, reducing risk for your legal department.

  • Integrate your Outlook inbox with Dazychain
  • Create new matters from emails
  • Send emails and documents to current matters
  • Cloud-based storage for keeping all legal department documents and emails in one place
  • Secure remote access for all stakeholders
  • Regular backups and sophisticated encryption for safety
  • 24/7 easy access for all stakeholders
  • Unique ID tags and dedicated filters for any, all, or exact matches
  • Search for information within documents, contracts, invoices, etc.

“…a flexible system and gave us a lot of configuration options, so that out of the box we could configure it to the way we worked as much as possible.”

Find the information you need

Decentralized storage systems are a roadblock to achieving control over corporate legal operations processes. Many teams store data in a range of places such as shared folders, Outlook email folders, desktops or unstructured personal folders. This creates risk, confusion and security issues. Further, if a team member leaves the organization it’s difficult to find, manage, and reuse their matters. Dazychain’s simple, end-to-end, cost-effective legal matter management software is the solution.

  • Access matters, documents, emails, deliverables, reminders, approvals and comments with one click
  • Provide secure access to remote files via security groups, private folders and private matter creation
