A typical business scenario: A lawyer specialising in corporate law has to create a high volume of contracts and legal documents for every type of case. With many routine documents to create, the lawyer will manually edit the latest version of the document. Most of the time, the lawyer has a few different files open, to painstakingly copy and paste client, counterparty and court details, contract details and clauses, as well as corporate identity (letterhead) from one file to another. The finished document is stored on the lawyers computer, hidden from other lawyers at the firm that could benefit from the knowledge. With the burden to create documents manually on his shoulders, he is unable to dedicate time to more valuable work.
The solution: With LegalSmartDocuments creating contracts and legal documents is more efficient. Now the lawyer can create and update MS Word-based templates and clauses when needed, to create accurate contracts and documents quicker, while creating a common knowlegde database for the firm. Associates or paralegals can quickly and accurately draft standard documents for different clients, freeing you to work on non-standard matters or higher-value work.
Moreover, with Legal SmartDocuments, you can provide your clients with an easy to use "self-service" portal to request standard legal documents. Guided by a questionnaire, Legal SmartDocuments collects the relevant information from your client and plugs it into your template, automatically creating a draft that you can review and/or send to the client immediately.
With efficient document automation you can boost productivity and adopt new business models that can make your firm more competitive.
