of Legal and Legal Tech Projects
This is where a lot of the fun stuff happens. At Simplex Labs, we combine the talents of our legal team with those of our technology wonks to make law cool. Naturally, there is rigorous legal oversight as we develop solutions to automate legal services. Thankfully we’ve seen the inside of hundreds of companies and their legal function. We’ve analyzed what works and what doesn’t, and apply the lessons learned to our other clients.
Automate Routine Processes
A tailor-made workflow that ensures all steps are followed, in the correct order and on time is not only possible, but is easier to build than you think. Our whole firm runs this way.
A.I. Contract Analysis
You might want to search through hundreds of contracts for a certain provision. Or find out how and when your contracts compare to the gold standard. We have the tools and the talent to help you.
Dashboard Legal Teams
Do you know how your legal team is being used? We can show how busy and backlogged it is, the types of matters it is reviewing, how long it is taking and who in the business is sending in the work.
Create Contract Templates
To scale, your legal function needs to be rock solid. We can help you level up your contract templates, using plain-language drafting if desired. And we’ll automate those templates allowing for easy amendments and e-signatures.

Governance and Compliance
Manage IP / IT
Medium to Long term
It’s challenging for a company or a legal department to manage the natural ebbs and flows of legal needs. So we designed our services to scale up or down, in pace with your needs.
You can start at a few hours a month and scale up to a full-time resource if needed. If needs drop, we scale back our support level.
‘Debundle’ your legal work
Look critically at your legal tasks and split them up. Send the general commercial to Simplex at our rates, and the specialized work to external counsel at theirs. Same quality work, but a large reduction in overall expense.
Procurement Centre of Excellence
Take a legal-heavy function like procurement and send it to the experts. Save your internal resources for more strategic initiatives.
Recruiting for key positions
Bring in one of our lawyers to keep things running smoothly. Then take the time to evaluate the recruit.
Leave your in-house job behind with confidence, and focus on the new member of the family.
Expand your team to cope with a strategic transaction
Turn us loose on a specific project or send us the day-to-day to free up your team.
Hire for the Valleys
If you have a legal team, keep it lean and use us to cover the peaks.
Craft policies that make sense
We will work with your corporate leadership to build pragmatic, easy to understand policies on important issues such as Work From Home, Whistleblowing and Anti-Money Laundering to name a few.
