MONTRÉAL, April 11, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Fasken has redesigned ViaFasken, its secure legal services application for emerging technology companies. This web-based platform is specifically tailored to streamline legal services for emerging technology companies so that they can focus on product development and growing their business.
"ViaFasken was developed in-house working closely with our emerging technology clients on the legal aspects of starting and scaling up their businesses," said Peter Feldberg, Firm Managing Partner. "The result is a cost-effective, innovative solution for entrepreneurs' unique needs."
The new ViaFasken is a solutions driven tool that sets out clear processes for legal matters. It showcases a number of additional features, including a new user interface, enhanced personnel management with equity grants, improved recordkeeping functionalities and automatic filing of executed documents, automated financing rounds for SAFEs, trademark searches and filing requests, and more. Trained ViaFasken specialists are available to assist clients at every step of the process.
"ViaFasken makes it easy for clients to set up their companies with access to all required legal services in one place," said Robert Garmaise, Chief Innovation Officer. "It also meets clients' evolving needs saving them time and money, today and as their business grows."
ViaFasken offers a uniquely digital end-user experience by adopting a SaaS model for the delivery of legal services. With a monthly or annual subscription, emerging technology clients at Fasken can access the platform anytime, anywhere through a secure login. The seamless integration of ViaFasken's document assembly, email and electronic signature functionalities, eliminates the need to download, sign, scan and re-upload executed documents for most documents generated through the platform.
