The partnership accelerates BlackBoiler’s reach into Europe and extends contract lifecycle support to Sandline’s existing clients.
Arlington, VA – December 14, 2021 – BlackBoiler, the leading provider of automated contract review and markup technology, today announced that it has partnered with Sandline Global to deliver innovative legal technology solutions with high-touch service to clients in Europe.
“The partnership with Sandline accelerates BlackBoiler’s reach into Europe and will provide our existing European clients with support from a best-in-class integrator of legal technology,” said Dan Broderick, CEO and co-founder of BlackBoiler. “Jon and Dominic from Sandline bring unparalleled experience and subject matter expertise working with the largest corporate legal departments and law firms in Europe.”
Sandline is a global eDiscovery provider and consultant for document and email management solutions with offices and data centers in Frankfurt, Washington D.C., and Taipei.
“In partnership with BlackBoiler, we will further extend the Sandline application landscape to support our clients already at the beginning of the lifecycle of documents and contracts”, said Jon Canty, Sandline CEO.
BlackBoiler’s patented technology addresses a global, $35 billion market where companies spend $26 billion reviewing and negotiating semantically similar contracts, $7 billion of which is verbatim work. BlackBoiler delivers up to a 70% reduction in review time compared to in-person review. The company’s automated editing technology suggests company-specific revisions to corporate documents to automate the process of contract negotiation—right in Track Changes, like an attorney would.
“The legal technology community is always keen to have hands-on and value-added solutions to their technology stack; with Blackboiler we can offer a forefront natural language processing solution that is currently being adopted by several big organizations and law firms”, said Dominic Piernot, Sandline’s Vice President-Europe.
BlackBoiler’s client roster includes AmLaw 25 law firms and several organizations within the Fortune 1000, including TE Connectivity, a $14 billion technology manufacturer. The company holds nine patents in the U.S. and is currently pursuing additional IP protection in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
BlackBoiler was recently selected as the “Best AI-based Solution for Legal” in the fourth annual AI Breakthrough Awards program conducted by AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global artificial intelligence market.
