The speed of business is increasing. But in growing organizations, legal teams often have a hard time keeping up with the increased deal volume and velocity. Businesses have tried to eliminate the bottleneck by requiring their legal teams to either work longer hours or hire more people, leading to employee burnout, higher costs, or both.
At Clearlaw, we started with the mindset that quality contract review shouldn't force a trade-off between speed and accuracy. With new technology, we can make use of all the existing intelligence within the team to both better mitigate risk and speed up the pipeline to keep pace with sales. And what we have created is a virtual assistant to guide the legal team through continuous and augmented contract review. The "legal bottleneck" disappears, team attrition is reduced, and revenue is closed faster.
