DiligenceEngine Publicly Launches its Contract Review Software at ReInvent Law NYC


Software helps lawyers review contracts faster and more accurately.

TORONTO, ON, February 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — DiligenceEngine Inc., whose software helps lawyers review contracts faster and more accurately, publicly launched their service on Friday, February 7th at the ReInvent Law Conference in New York City. DiligenceEngine’s software automatically finds and highlights user-specified contract provisions, prepares summary charts, and includes workflow and data analysis tools to help users refine and understand results. The system also includes organizational tools to allow users to coordinate large review projects. In tests of experienced lawyers, a DiligenceEngine user was faster and more accurate than a lawyer reviewing contracts the traditional, page-by-page way.

“As a former top-firm M&A lawyer, I would have loved to have had our software back when I was practicing,” said Noah Waisberg, CEO and Co-Founder, DiligenceEngine. He continued, “Traditional contract review is time consuming and prone to human error. Our software has caught numerous human diligence mistakes, and consistently speeds work. Simply put, lawyers using our system are faster and more accurate.”

While this marks DiligenceEngine’s public launch, the system has already been used by firms and companies on numerous deals, enhancing contract review in over $20 billion (USD) worth of transactions. The system has enthusiastic users: a junior associate at one large firm called it “tremendously helpful” after using it on a deal.
