Ken’s a transcendent figure in the world of contracts. He has single-handedly created and made himself the master of a new discipline—systematic study of the building blocks of contract language. Applying artificial intelligence to contracts requires expertise. We now have as a LegalSifter employee the unquestioned expert on contract language.”
Miller continues, “It’s a bonus that he’s such a great communicator, whether through his scholarly writing, the training he offers, or his blog. Many people around the world rely on Ken’s work. He will continue those activities alongside his work for us.”
