Discussion session

LegalTech market in Russia is not yet among the world leaders, and there is a simple explanation: in most cases, lawyers are very conservative in their views and are not yet ready to fully rely on algorithms.

At the same time, it is impossible to deny that technology becomes pervasive in the world of law, as more and more legal departments and firms are implementing digital solutions in their work. Many of our colleagues have already seen that the proper use of AI technologies makes it possible to significantly increase the transparency and efficiency of most standard processes. AI technologies have come into our lives to free professionals from the routine and give an opportunity to devote more time to creative and substantive tasks. 

You do not know how to get rid of daily paperwork and routine tasks? Tired of hundreds of identical contracts, lawsuits, powers of attorney, and other documents?

Join the discussion, we will tell and show how to increase efficiency of your standard processes and reduce the time for creating documents from hours to minutes or even seconds!
