Nexsen Pruet and LegalSifter Partner to Accelerate contract Review with AI

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Friday, November 9th, 2018

Nexsen Pruet and LegalSifter are proud to announce a strategic partnership to offer a “combined intelligence” solution for contract negotiation to clients across a wide range of industries in the United States. Combining LegalSifter’s artificial intelligence (AI), Nexsen Pruet’s legal experience and Nextra Solutions’ (a subsidiary of Nexsen Pruet) information management solutions 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 tailored to the client’s business and negotiation position by Nexsen Pruet’s attorneys.
 
“Artificial intelligence represents an opportunity for law firms to deliver legal services faster and more efficiently,” said Peter Santos, Nexsen Pruet’s Managing Member of Professionals. “We have been informally working with LegalSifter for more than a year and have come to know they are at the forefront in applying AI technology to the legal sector. Nexsen Pruet’s decision to more formally partner with LegalSifter to supplement how we deliver legal services and legal solutions demonstrates our commitment to bring the best technology and legal project management skills to the legal services we deliver to our clients.”
 
“LegalSifter is helping law firms sell software to their clients. We are giving them the opportunity to put their brains in boxes and offer them to their clients 24x7x365. It’s different. It’s exciting. It’s not easy. Peter got it in two minutes. We are so fortunate to have Nexsen Pruet as a partner,” said Kevin Miller, CEO at LegalSifter.
