LDD expands into U.S. market with
unique online title insurance platform
Initiative with U.S.-based ‘Attorneys Title Guaranty Fund’ (ATGF)
will deliver to clients unprecedented new levels of service and accuracy
TORONTO (Sept. 4, 2008) - Canada‟s LawyerDoneDeal Corp., a leading provider of Web-
based business services, announced today that it has expanded its services into the United
States with the launch of a new online title insurance platform designed for U.S. real estate
LawyerDoneDeal Corp. (LDD) has launched a new initiative with U.S.-based title insurance
company Attorneys Title Guaranty Fund, Inc. (ATGF), in which LDD will provide ATGF and its
agents a customized, Internet-based title insurance distribution and underwriting platform
under the brand name „EPIC™‟ (Electronic Policy Issuance Capability).
“The new EPIC platform creates virtual underwriting capabilities that give attorneys an
unprecedented new level of convenience, speed and cost savings,” said ATGF president
Christopher J. Condie, noting that EPIC is designed specifically for bar-related title insurers
and their attorneys. “We have for the first time eliminated the need to order or maintain policy
forms, replacing traditional transaction methods with online creation and delivery of policies,
as well as related documents and data, plus online payment capabilities.”
“ATGF participates in tens of thousands of transactions each year involving complex and
constantly changing U.S. real estate laws”, Condie noted.
“With the new EPIC online platform, attorneys will be even better prepared to deliver service
that protects buyers and sellers against hidden or unforeseen title problems that can
jeopardize real estate investments,” he added. “ATGF has more than 45 years of experience in
real property transactions and this initiative represents a true breakthrough in improved
service, efficiency and costs for legal professionals and their clients.”
The newly designed EPIC platform, available to U.S. users through AttorneyDoneDeal, will
permit users to prepare ATGF commitments, policies, endorsements and closing documents,
including closing protection letters, all online using unique password access. The EPIC system
offers a significant level of formatted, „virtual underwriting‟ that lets users write fast and
accurate commitments and policies regardless of their experience level. EPIC is the only online
program connected directly to ATGF and its underwriter/agent network.
“We‟ve developed a unique new system for the U.S. market and, based on the hugely positive
response to date, we anticipate expanding our current offering to even more users in
partnership with ATGF,” said Maurizio Romanin, president of Toronto-based LawyerDoneDeal
Corp. ATGF currently serves professionals in the states of Colorado, Minnesota, Utah and
North Dakota. “The EPIC system provides a single data entry system similar to other products
on the market but at a fraction of the cost.”
LDD will be a major sponsor at ATGF‟s annual conference being held in Colorado in October,
where Romanin will be a keynote speaker and where the EPIC system will be demonstrated to
