SimpleLegal introduces SimpleReview, its new AI feature


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Simple Legal, a modern provider of legal operations software, today announced the availability of SimpleReview. AI technology supports simplified invoice review by analyzing, identifying and highlighting invoice errors. A hyper-targeted invoice review process allows corporate legal teams to reinvest bandwidth in higher impact work.

SimpleLegal’s AI models apply machine learning and natural language processing to understand the context of invoices and line items. The technology that powers SimpleReview continually learns with every data point it processes to reliably capture violations of billing guidelines from outside lawyers.

The scope of work of law firms for corporate legal services often results in invoices from outside lawyers that can span hundreds of pages and thousands of articles. Billing guidelines and human review help detect charges that are outside of the guidelines of outside lawyers. However, the volume of work and different descriptions of similar services can prove difficult, giving AI the ability to locate additional non-compliant charges.

“SimpleReview is an easy to use tool that has been seamlessly integrated into our invoicing process. The AI-powered functionality speeds up the exam and frees up bandwidth for our busy advisors. We quickly identified external advice billing violations that resulted in significant savings, ”said Eric Ortman, senior director of legal operations at BeiGene, a global biotechnology company focused on drug development and commercialization. innovators around the world.

SimpleReview supports SimpleLegal’s long-standing approach to keeping things simple. “Our goal is to give lawyers the ability to perform targeted invoice review with a high degree of rigor,” said Mark Weidick, Managing Director of SimpleLegal. “SimpleReview streamlines the tedious task of reviewing invoices and allows lawyers to be diligent without tiring themselves. “

This is not the case with SimpleReview. With over $ 16 billion in historical billing data, our AI model can experience the many intricacies of real-world legal billing scenarios, ”said Shri Iyer, vice president of product and design for SimpleLegal .
