Ascenta and LegalSifter Partner to Accelerate Contract Review with Artificial Intelligence
October 17, 2018
LegalSifter and Ascenta are proud to announce a strategic partnership to offer a “combined intelligence” solution for contract negotiation for clients in Australia and New Zealand. Combining LegalSifter’s artificial intelligence (AI) with Ascenta’s legal expertise will allow clients to review contracts quickly and confidently at a predictable cost.
Users start by uploading draft contracts into LegalSifter. Sifters – the software trained to read text, look for specific concepts, and learn over time – then review the document and identify important concepts that demand attention or are missing entirely. The Sifters trigger Help Text, in-context advice written by Ascenta’s attorneys.
“Client objectives have not changed. It's about quality advice, delivered quickly, consistently and cost-effectively. It's all about getting clients what they need so that they can move on objectives and get things done,” said Narin Xavier de Saini, Director at Ascenta. “This technology picks up best practices and checklists out of our lawyers' heads, drops them into documents, delivers the advice and learns with feedback. It is consistent, fast, does not lose focus and never makes the same mistake after it has learnt the right approach. It closes the gap between service delivery and client objectives. Simply put, it allows clients and counsel to move faster.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Ascenta. Narin and his team have a track record as forward-thinking, entrepreneurial lawyers and business leaders. We’re excited to support Narin as he grows his firm by empowering his clients with artificial intelligence,” says Kevin Miller, CEO at LegalSifter.
Ascenta will offer LegalSifter-enabled solutions to clients for a wide range of contract types, including non-disclosure agreements, commercial leases, consulting agreements, goods agreements, services agreements, and end-user license agreements.
Ascenta is focused on corporate and commercial law and strategy. We help clients and corporate teams grow, do deals and solve problems with technology and fluid legal resourcing.
