How it Works

DocJuris was built ground-up with contract redlining in mind. Practitioner focused tools that value HI > AI.

Empower legal, sales, and procurement

State-of-the-art contract editor allows teams to collaborate and edit contracts in track-changes, all in the web. Bring contracts in and out of CLM or existing systems through our APIs.

Reduce risk in negotiations

Each contract review is paired with a knowledge pane consisting of policies, playbooks, and precedent. DocJuris provides suggested revisions and allows users to one-click redline contracts.

Stop time-draining tasks

Teams can redline PDFs and Word docs with less friction, and DocJuris runs helpful comparisons automatically together with insights against your playbook, checklist, and more.

Risk and Language Agnostic

DocJuris is a risk-agnostic platform allows organizations to build playbooks and/or negotiate contracts that are high risk or in any language (e.g., dual-column). It's not just NDAs.

Reduces training hours

DocJuris accelerates training by producing exception tables, deviation guidance, and classic RAG reports on every new contract. Legal and procurement/sales teams work smarter.

Captures data at scale

Teams can push scrubbed drafts back to counter parties in Word while simultaneously capturing analytics on  work product. Managers can then leverage data to refactor strategies.
