Contract Abstraction

When an organization has ongoing contracts and legacy agreements with multiple counterparties, managing ad hoc requests for information can be a challenge. Many companies lack an optimal system to quickly identify key contract terms and details. This can be a challenge on a day-to-day basis, but it is especially an issue when dealing with new legislation or a regulatory change that requires amendments to multiple contracts. And if your business is undergoing a merger or acquisition, you will need easily accessible contract information to complete due diligence.
Drawing on our experience with contract abstraction, QuisLex can help your in-house counsel structure your contract data so that you can work more effectively. A minority business enterprise (MBE), QuisLex engages Global 100 law firms and large corporations to provide streamlined, scalable managed legal services.

Efficient Contract Abstraction

At any given time, a company may be managing hundreds – or even thousands – of contracts, each with unique terms. Legal departments need a user-friendly system for keeping track of the key terms in each contract without having to review individual agreements by hand. Contract abstraction is the process of pulling out dates, payment terms, and other critical information from these documents. By implementing a centralized platform for contract management, a legal team can easily access and review details about ongoing deals.

Contract Lifecycle Management

At QuisLex, we take a comprehensive approach to the contracting process. Applying the framework of contract lifecycle management (CLM), we can reduce our client’s workload and automate time-consuming tasks. From review and negotiation to execution and archival, we offer process improvements at each step of the contract lifecycle. Using a CLM model, our clients reap the following benefits:

  • Reduced variance from contractual standards
  • Fewer negotiation cycles
  • Operational cost savings
  • Improved insights into deal flow
  • A reduced administrative burden on in-house staff

We always tailor our services to our client’s needs, approaching contract management in the context of the businesses it supports. The team at QuisLex is proud to have been recognized by Chambers and Partners, earning a Band 1 ranking for Contract Lifecycle Management in their annual review of alternative legal service providers.

Our Technology Expertise

Leveraging our proficiency in multiple technologies, QuisLex can incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) tools to automate the contract abstraction process. Because we are technology agnostic, our experts can advise you on a host of different tools, helping you understand how different CLM technologies can integrate into your existing workflows. We walk our clients through the advantages of each tool, providing straightforward advice to help them make the best decision. In addition to data abstraction, many legal software platforms feature capabilities such as:

  • Optical character recognition (OCR)
  • Bulk export of documents and metadata
  • Document de-duplication
  • Boolean search capabilities
  • Document batching

With a team of programmers, technologists, and data specialists, QuisLex can maximize out-of-the-box functionality to avoid over-configuration and make it easier for you to implement new tools. And with our advanced analytics competencies, we can track, analyze, and report on a wide range of key performance indicators (KPIs), such as contract types, volumes, cycle times, and statuses. With these insights, we can drive continuous improvement within your organization.

Using a proactive approach to CLM and our technological expertise, we make it easier for companies to manage their contractual relationships while simplifying execution, compliance, and agreement renewals or closures.
