Explanation:
...follow-up transactions can be closed legally binding in 2000.

It is just meant that those transactions will be effective.

Explanation:
Both suggestions, even if perfectly correct, sound a little clumpy within the context.

" ... after which follow-up business can be contractually concluded in 2000."
sounds better to my ears.

neutral  Susan Starling: It may sound better, but I don't think it captures the meaning of "vertragswirksam." After all, there is the word "vertraglich."
4 mins
  -> Somethings that is contracted is always "vertraglich".

neutral  Beate Lutzebaeck: Nope - there is a difference between vertraglich (contractual) and vertragswirksam (contractually binding/effective); s.th. may be contractual but for whatever reason it is not binding/effective

  -> It is a simple sentence and some of the suggestions are either linguistically complicated or overkill. Oh well, the asker's choice!!
