What is Drafting Assistant?

Drafting Assistant is a legal proofreading solution that works within Microsoft Word. Designed for law firms of all sizes and in-house legal teams, it scans your legal documents intelligently in seconds, alerting you to errors, inconsistencies, missing information and more.

How does it work?

Drafting Assistant instantly identifies open issues, defined term errors, inconsistencies and more, directly in the word processor as you are drafting a contract or working on a third-party legal document. You can then jump to potential drafting mistakes to review and correct if needed or share with colleagues via email.


Average amount of time saved on reviewing documents with Drafting Assistant, according to a recent Thomson Reuters study.
