D2 Legal Technology was founded as an independent consulting firm in 2011 due to a demand for expert solutions relating to legal documentation in the capital markets space. We are a boutique in this field bringing world-class knowledge of documentation technology systems, capital markets legal documentation (such as ISDA, GMRA, GMSLA, OSLA and Prime Brokerage Agreements), risk management and a wealth of practical experience to our client investment banks and asset managers.
D2 Legal Technology has been at the forefront of advising and implementing document generation and data extraction from large document portfolios consisting of ISDA Master Agreements (including their related collateral agreements (ISDA Credit Support Annexes / Deeds)), other relationship-level legal agreements and transactional documentation (such as OTC derivatives trade confirmations).
The founder, Akber Datoo, is an experienced investment banking professional with over fifteen years’ experience in the OTC derivatives industry, possessing a unique skill set as a technologist and lawyer.
This has provided an excellent platform from which to provide expert guidance on documentation technology and processes, having worked as both an IT developer in the fixed income derivatives department of a tier 1 investment bank and as a derivatives lawyer at the magic circle law firm, Allen & Overy LLP.
