TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS), a provider of e-discovery and litigation support solutions for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced that it has waived all charges for virtual notary services in New York in support of the state’s efforts to reduce face-to-face interactions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual notary services are available to law firms and corporate legal departments where the relevant signatory is physically located in New York State. All charges are being waived for a limited time.
On March 7, 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed Executive Order 202.7, which permits virtual notarization using video conferencing apps. TLS has ensured that all the latest regulations for process, security, and electronic signature capabilities are being followed. TLS is exploring the possibility of offering the service in other states and will announce any new offerings via the company’s social media accounts.
TLS’s goal through this offering is to reduce the need to conduct business in person and to help New York-based clients ensure business continuity amidst guidance and regulations closing or restricting operations of many traditional vendors and venues
