REVOLUTIONISING CONTRACTUAL DECISIONS

We believe lawyers need better tools and data to manage and understand contract risk in today’s complex corporate environments.

A collaboration with leading technology law firm Taylor Vinters LLP, ThoughtRiver was established in 2013 to address the insight and productivity gap in today’s contract processes.

Our dynamic and experienced team of legal and technology experts operates from offices in Cambridge, London and Singapore.
