On the whole, companies prefer to invest their time and money in product development, marketing and other core activities rather than on legal services. Early-stage technology and life sciences companies prefer to work with law firms that pragmatically and efficiently help enterprises build strong legal foundations and achieve business goals.

The attorneys at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & RosatI, headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif., with seven other offices in the U.S. and China, are keenly aware of this desire and tailor their services accordingly. To respond specifically to early-stage client needs for efficient and cost-effective legal services, the firm has customized Business Integrity‘s ContractExpress document assembly software to create tools that enable attorneys to quickly and effectively prepare high-quality document forms that clients can use for events such as corporate formations and venture financings. For clients, these document assembly tools allow access to the experience and expertise of WSGR’s attorneys, while saving time and money. For the firm, the tools strengthen its competitive advantage in serving the technology and life sciences markets.
