Document Review Service
Automation of documents starts with good quality content.
While most firms will maintain precedents, they are not always in an optimised state for automation. Unprepared content can slow the launch of a project, or cause problems during the process, delaying it.
We offer a range of services aimed at ensuring your organisation's documents are going to give you the best start in the automation process.
Not only can we draw on our lawyers' drafting expertise but also our experts who have a deep understanding of Word functionality and years of automation experience.
Our document review service is tailored to your specific requirements and can cover:
Proposing clear English drafting changes as well as other drafting and layout changes to improve the readability of a document.
Suggesting gender-neutral language changes (which can help reduce the number automation points).
Reviewing documents to ensure they have been drafted consistently.
