In the latest in the video series How It Works, we take a deep dive into iManage Closing Folders. iManage Closing Folders removes the manual, repetitive tasks from legal transaction management so you can focus on delivering more value to your clients.

Through intelligent automation and collaboration tools, Closing Folders is designed to help you run deals with unparalleled efficiency, accuracy, and control.
