Opportunity: Why document automation?


Automating the creation of legal documents can dramatically increase the efficiency and, therefore, profitability of a law firm. In fact, a study conducted by Epoq demonstrated that using a document automation system could cut the time taken to take instructions and draft a document by 70%. Using our document automation system will enable law firms to:

  • Increase the efficiency of creating high-quality first-draft documents
  • Collaborate with clients and manage documents securely online
  • Offer clients a more convenient way to access services
  • Differentiate their service and thus capture new clients
