Drafting Assistant: Legal document analysis and review
The analysis tool that halves the time spent proofreading legal documents. We can assist in figuring out if it's right for your needs.
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.
Cut time costs without cutting corners
Allocate hours smarter
In addition to giving you a head start when drafting, this solution will help avoid costly and time-consuming contract drafting errors. It quickly identifies and assesses potential issues, such as cross-reference discrepancies and missing information, both within your document and in related documents.
Start using it immediately
Drafting Assistant integrates with Microsoft Word, so you can start using it with little to no learning time in a platform you and your lawyers know well. If you do need any help, online training and support are available at no additional cost.
Trust your work and reduce risk
A citation-checking tool verifies the status of citations in your legal document and inserts links to the full text on Westlaw UK.
