The future of legal documentation: 5 ways Zegal is leading the charge

By Tom Odlin, Updated: 2023-10-23 (published on 2023-04-05)

The legal industry has long been considered resistant to change, with traditional methods dominating how legal documentation is created, managed, and executed.

Many law firms and in-house legal teams still use email and Word attachments, which evolved from a world pre-Cloud technology when we could not view documents in real-time. Lawyers had to rely on checking each physical version of a document, often with lawyers marking contracts up by hand and scanning them. 

However, rapid technological advancements have paved the way for a new era of legal operations. Zegal is at the forefront of this transformation, developing technologies that allow for live collaboration of legal contracts that get it all done far more quickly and far less painfully.

1: Embracing digital transformation

Zegal recognised the importance of digital transformation in the legal industry as long ago as 2013 and has been developing legal technology for nearly a decade. We developed a cutting-edge contract management platform, incorporating features such as customisable templates, automated workflows, and eSigning capabilities to enable businesses to streamline their legal processes and improve efficiency.

2: Harnessing the power of AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a crucial role in the future of legal documentation. Zegal’s platform leverages AI to simplify contract creation, analyse legal clauses, and provide insights for optimised decision-making.

By fully embracing the potential of AI, Zegal empowers businesses to create contracts with greater accuracy and speed, reducing the risk of errors and saving valuable time.

The platform also enables businesses to control access to their contracts, ensuring secure and efficient collaboration with external third parties and tracking comments, reviews and versions in real time.

The future of law, according to AI.
