Our LexPredict Team is excited to announce the new ContraxSuite User Interface – See Press Release < HERE >
ContraxSuite has a wide range of user types across our various legal service delivery customers. Relevant users include legal data scientists, power users in legal information technology, professional review teams at legal process outsourcers, contract review units in corporate legal departments, as well as associates and partners in law firms.

“Monax announced that eleven organizations are partnering with the Agreements Network (AN) which turns ‘legal processes into products’. The network enables people to create legally compliant agreements from templates with a few clicks.
The project deserves attention because of the involvement of Monax which is known for contributing the code to Hyperledger Burrow.
The AN announced it’s working with law firms BakerHostetler, LegalBono and ErdosIP. Additionally, tech firm partners include Clause, Crowdcube, LexPredict, Libra, Mattereum, Monax, Rymedi, TransparentNode and Wolfram Blockchain Labs.”
