Our Vision – Putting you on a new path

We strive to demystify legal documentation, putting you on a new path. Whether we use the latest artificial intelligence, natural language processing techniques, or human intelligence or, dare we say, a little old-fashioned copy and paste, our goal is to put the information you need at your fingertips when and where you need it.

Data, software and expertise are the tools that allow us to deliver to you on our promise of high-quality analysis and insight.

Our Story - Breaking Barriers

We’ve read capital markets documents. We’ve drafted them. We’ve corrected them. We’ve sat at our desk into the small hours trawling through the docs. We often felt that we could have been faster, better informed and reduced risk with the right tools. Recent advances in natural language processing and artificial intelligence have made the creation of these tools a reality.

Our curiosity leads us exploring through the current jungle of these technologies. Our enthusiasm pushes us to persevere and find those select techniques that will truly help our capital markets customers, breaking the barriers imposed by existing processes.

We are experts in blending together the disciplines of finance, law, natural language processing and artificial intelligence, with a sprinkling of software, to bring structure to capital markets legal docs. And in doing so, provide a first-class service to our customers, whilst having a little fun along the way.
