Large discrepancies in the criteria used by law firms¹
While law firms cite price as the most important criteria (25%), legal departments rank this in fourth place (16%). For law firm clients, the focus is more on using technology to improve productivity, efficiency and collaboration (on a par with the ability to understand customer needs and collaborate with the customer).
Legal documents are subject to constant changes as a result of new legislation and case law. However, you are liable to your clients for the provision of legally secure contract and document templates. Even the search for an individually suitable contract template turns out to be quite tedious. With Legal SmartDocuments you reduce the manual effort associated with creating legal documents. This means that contracts and all other legal documents can be created in a standardized, legally secure manner at any time. Make internal specialist knowledge available to your organization centrally with Legal SmartDocuments. A legal tech tool that supports you in bundling your knowledge and thus optimizing the document creation process in the long term.
The right template at all times:
Develop legally compliant text modules and contract clauses that can be reused in any number of different templates and thus updated automatically. In addition to mass procedures and standard consulting services, the intelligent automation in Legal SmartDocuments enables even the most complex legal documents to be created. Based on a structured decision tree, a catalog of questions is stored once, which can also be used intuitively by non-specialist users in order to create uniform and legally compliant documents.
With Legal SmartDocuments, when you update a clause following a new ruling or change in legislation, the modification will automatically be applied to all your templates and briefs.
Updates are managed in one central location, ensuring they are immediately available in all other legal documents going forward. Not only can you improve compliance with external standards, but also with your internal standards. In this way, compliance and legal risks can be minimized and ultimately economic losses can be avoided.
Create documents quickly, efficiently and innovatively:
By using Legal SmartDocuments, you make better use of your resources and increase efficiency in the document creation process by relocating routine tasks and creating more space for value-adding activities and strategic tasks. Using the text modules and help texts you have approved, operational document creation can be easily transferred to all relevant departments. This means that your clients can also generate documents easily and securely - always on the basis of the text modules you have approved. Let your clients participate in the document creation process.
