Navigate the legal tech jungle wisely

Technology offers exciting potential to substantially improve the productivity, effectiveness and efficiency of legal teams. It’s clear that the most successful legal teams of the future will be far more tech-savvy than before. But the journey to a tech-enabled future can be a confusing one, clouded by the huge range and volume of solutions on the market.

The challenges for businesses are in identifying, investing and implementing technology that will produce the most effective results, without being left behind or paying for more than you need.

Whether it’s navigating the legal tech landscape, building a future-proof strategy or adopting a new solution, we can help. We understand business, but our teams also have the technical expertise to help configure technology as a managed service, partnership, or initial deployment.

Case study: Simplifying regulatory compliance

A multinational bank needed to review their contracts to make sure they complied with recent changes in regulation. This meant reviewing more than 10,000 contracts, some of which were more than 200 pages in length, in a short timeframe. We used a combination of AI and machine learning techniques to automate digitisation and extraction of key terms and clauses from the contracts. This allowed the clauses to be automatically compared against the new regulations, flagging any that weren’t compliant. We then used our Contract Management Platform to automatically create new, compliant contracts. The process saved the client up to 70% in costs per contract and reduced the contract review and regeneration process from an average of three hours to just minutes.
