KM and drafting boost for legal teams

Henchman and Microsoft Copilot Boost KM and Drafting

Henchman announces its integration with Microsoft Copilot to streamline the drafting processes by harnessing the collective knowledge stored in Document Management Systems while leveraging Microsoft AI and its security protocols.

When searching for answers through Microsoft Copilot, legal teams can seamlessly access suggestions directly from their Document Management System (e.g., iManage, NetDocuments, SharePoint) and determine the best precedent for the negotiation with quick access to the source document.

Leveraging advanced algorithms and metadata, this synergy facilitates more accurate answers and boosts drafting efficiency while tapping into a legal team’s wealth of collective knowledge.

With the mirrored user permissions from the document management system, knowledge managers will ensure the right practice groups access the right sources, promoting efficiency, accuracy, and collaboration in contract drafting and negotiation while ensuring contractual boundaries are met and safeguarding from training LLMs.

“As a current customer of Henchman, we are excited to learn about Henchman’s integration with Microsoft Copilot … The ability to access relevant suggestions from our existing document management system directly within Copilot would streamline drafting processes and has the potential to be a game-changer for legal professionals,” stated Nicole Stefanelli, Special Counsel & Director of Knowledge Management at Lowenstein Sandler LLP.

​“Our integration with Microsoft Copilot represents a significant milestone in our journey to empower legal teams with the tools they need, whenever they need them, so they can thrive and become more efficient in their daily workflow,” said Jorn Vanysacker, co-founder at Henchman.

Similar to Microsoft Copilot’s availability for the general audience, Henchman’s Microsoft Copilot integration is now available via early access for early adopters of Microsoft Copilot in Microsoft Teams. As Microsoft gradually rolls out Copilot across its suite of products, Henchman will follow the same rollout cadence. The integration is available free of charge to all Henchman customers.
