Thought River

What is Pre-Screening?

ThoughtRiver addresses a fundamental problem for in-house counsels and lawyers: you simply don’t know which part of a contract to focus on without reading it all. 

Historically, pre-screening triage was provided manually, but the modern legal office does not often have the luxury of resource available to do this. 

ThoughtRiver’s pre-screening technology is able to automate this human triaging process by reading the contract, identifying all relevant parties, answering key questions, and then telling you what to read and why you need to read it, in just the same way a good paralegal would – with the added bonus that our technology never gets tired, does not stop to eat or drink, and only gets smarter with time. 

The Story of the GC

The General Counsel’s office should operate as a strategic adviser to the business and its senior executives, the reality is however very different according to the majority of the GCs we speak to on a daily basis.  

They tell us that nowadays they are simply too busy handling low-value tasks to be able to focus on the more strategic work that would really deliver true business value. 

This is where ThoughtRiver comes in. Our contract pre-screening tool helps GCs and their teams take back control of their time and tap into their full potential. It’s a win-win situation for the legal team and the business, delivering high quality output at a low unit price, whilst enabling GCs to have more time to get closer to the business by focusing on what matters.

ThoughtRiver not only provides us a way of triaging contracts and prioritizing our resources, it effectively provides us with another legal team.
