Multi-award-winning LegalTech solution for automating the contract review process
Are you familiar with the following problem?
You work in a company’s sales or purchasing department and receive non-disclosure agreements, purchase orders or other contracts from suppliers, customers or other business partners for review. Even if you have no legal training yourself, you are the first point of contact for your business partners on these contractual matters, and you check the content of these contracts for compliance with company policies. While you are often very good at assessing the technical content of contracts, you lack the legal experience to deal with many legal subtleties, formulations and standard clauses. You are also limited in your ability to assess whether the contract is complete in terms of your own corporate policies.
You send the contract for review to your legal department or, if you don’t have one, to an external specialist law firm. Since many other contracts need to be reviewed in addition to yours, the contract reviews pile up. And for the lawyers, these are time-consuming standard tasks that are repeated over and over again.
So getting contracts signed – even simple ones – takes a long time. It causes dissatisfaction among business partners and costs the company a lot of money through the use of specialist legal staff.
Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) help?
Clearly, yes. AI trained for these use cases can automatically review non-disclosure agreements, purchase orders and other contracts. In this way, legal departments, sales organisations and purchasing teams get a LegalTech solution for numerous use cases that relieves them of everyday – but very demanding – routine activities. Our partner Legartis from Switzerland provides such a solution.
