Legal Technology

Driving an intelligent blend of people, process and technology

We use legal technology to augment the provision of legal services, ensuring consistent high quality and efficient delivery. Our lawyers are supported by legal technologists in selecting the right technology solutions to achieve the best results for you.

We don’t just have one business model or tool to solve problems: our success stems from working collaboratively to understand your individual needs and then creating a well-designed solution to deliver a seamless experience, even on complex matters.

Legal technology case studies:

Bespoke M&A collaboration solution

Our bespoke M&A collaboration solution was used to support the global transfer of assets and shares across 18 jurisdictions. This solution encompasses a collaboration portal, eSignatures and document automation and allowed local counsel to feed in specific, complex requirements digitally for swift analysis for a large US healthcare company.

eDiscovery – intelligent analysis

We used our secure eDiscovery platform to support our client in a procurement challenge made against it in respect of three contracts by an unsuccessful bidder. With 100+ reviewers logged on simultaneously, we reviewed one terabyte of data (approx. one million items including WhatsApp and text messages).

Document automation 

A retail client asked us to redraft 136 concession agreements in a short period of time. We used a combination of document automation and contract review solutions to deliver this work consistently, saving 70 hours of work.

Mobile app development

We developed a mobile app to support a large financial institution in providing their staff with on-the-go access to financial regulatory frameworks in multiple jurisdictions across Europe and the Middle East to mitigate the risk of breaching local financial regulatory rules when engaging with their customers.

Electronic evidence bundling

Our secure e-bundling platform was used to support our client in a large litigation matter taken over from another firm six weeks before trial. 15 users, including our client, counsel and ourselves used the platform to annotate, review and prepare trial bundles across four locations in the UK and Canada.

Robotic process automation 

We used robotic process automation combined with an AI contract review solution to identify relevant documents and data points from over 2000 Individual Voluntary Arrangements where modifications had been disregarded by the insolvency practitioner.

What our clients say:

“Eversheds Sutherland came to us with innovative solutions to use AI to gather and analyze data from over 2m pages of legal documents on the project. In the end they saved us over £200,000 in legal fees, de-risked the transaction for us and ensured the provision of accurate data to the bidders which would not have otherwise been available.”
