To support the Legal Department, the Compliance Department, the General Counsel, the Board of Directors and the General Management through better documentation, better expense management, availability of information and online collaboration.

Further increase team efficiency by connecting your existing software and unstructured data to the solution, and by adopting other cross-functional integrated risk management modules to help coordinate actions across departments in charge of other risks and avoid redundancies.
Increase team efficiency by up to 30% and get a real-time view of your legal risks.


  • A fragmented view of risks.
  • Obligations, risks, opportunities and an ever-increasing workload with teams and budgets growing relatively slower than obligations.
  • Manual and repetitive tasks are still very present.
  • Operational staff with little autonomy.
  • Frequent use of spreadsheets and specialized software operating in silos, unsuitable for consolidation constraints and information updates.


  • Risks are sometimes poorly identified and prioritized.
  • Teams are overworked.
  • Redundant actions.
  • Too much time spent on low value-added tasks, risks of errors and omissions in essential obligations.


Knowing and keeping up with changes in local and international regulations can help you make and maintain your legal program safer and more efficient.

The Legal Risk Module helps your Organization cope with the growth in volume, variety and velocity of legal obligations by :

  • Coordinating local, national, international and extraterritorial legal obligations with each other.
  • Empowering operational staff to allow legal teams to manage only exceptions and have more time for analysis, recommendations and follow-up.
  • Coordinating teams and information systems and making the most of existing and untapped information.
  • Automating time-consuming manual processes.
