We construct a new invariant of transverse links in the standard contactstructure on R^3. This invariant is a doubly ﬁltered version of the knot contact homology differential graded algebra (DGA) of the link, see (Ekholm et al., Knot contacthomology, Arxiv:1109.1542, 2011; Ng, Duke Math J 141(2):365–406, 2008). Herethe knot contact homology of a link in R3is the Legendrian contact homology DGAof its conormal lift into the unit cotangent bundle SR^3of R^3, and the ﬁltrations are constructed by counting intersections of the holomorphic disks of the DGA differential with two conormal lifts of the contact structure. We also present a combinatorial formula for the ﬁltered DGA in terms of braid representatives of transverse links andapply it to show that the new invariant is independent of previously known invariantsof transverse links.
