Arlington, Virginia, Feb. 24, 2020 – BlackBoiler, a leader in AI-assisted contract review, today announced it has been named to The National Law Journal’s 2020 Emerging Legal Technologies. The second annual special issue profiles leading technology companies that are changing the ways law firms and legal departments operate by delivering innovative new products that improve the practice of law. The 2020 Emerging Legal Technologies list was released in February as a special supplement of The National Law Journal.
BlackBoiler’s patented technology dramatically reduces the amount of time that lawyers and other professionals spend reviewing and marking up documents such as NDAs, service agreements, and other high-volume contracts. To date, the company has secured four patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its AI-assisted review product.
“We are honored to be named among The National Law Journal’s Emerging Technologies,” said Dan Broderick, CEO and co-founder of BlackBoiler. “Our inclusion among emerging growth companies in the legal space is a testament to the work done by our team of computational linguists and developers as well as validation of the value BlackBoiler provides law departments and law firms.”
