Contract review and Sporadic Support
Even if the need for additional support pops a time or two a year, you can still have access to the same great resources we deploy to long-term mandates.

Development and Management of Legal and Legal Tech Projects
This is where a lot of the fun stuff happens. Here we get to combine the talents of our legal team and the technology wonks at Simplex Labs to bring cool into law. The automation and analysis we do has rigorous legal oversight and open market access to tech talent. It’s a fortunate byproduct of our business model that we get to see into hundreds of companies and their legal function. We can see what works and what doesn’t, and take the lessons of one tech implementation and bring it to others.
Automate Routine Processes
A bespoke workflow that ensures all steps are followed, in the correct order and within the time periods necessary is not only possible, but is easier to build than you think. Our whole firm runs on this.
A.I. Contract Analysis
We could do a website on this topic alone. Whether you’re wanting to search through hundreds of contracts for a certain provision, or to find out how and when your contracts are amended against a gold standard, we have the tools and the talent to implement, analyze and report.
Dashboard Legal Teams
It’s very useful for legal department managers to know how their team is being utilized. We can show how busy and backlogged team members are, the types of matters they are reviewing, how long they are taking and who in the business is sending in the work.

Using plain-language drafting if desired, we will build your contracts to stage you for scale. As an added feature, we can automate those templates allowing for easy amendments and even e-signature.

We can scale with your department, skirt headcount restriction and bring targeted experience into your team seamlessly.
