The drafting process has evolved over time – new technology brings advanced drafting tools that help you work faster and smarter. No matter how you finalize your work product, to help your client win and protect your reputation, your document must be accurate.

#1 Consideration when drafting documents

According to a recent ALM drafting technology survey of attorneys, 92% of respondents agreed that accuracy was the most important consideration when drafting documents.

Most attorneys start the drafting process with an existing brief or document. This is standard practice for leveraging your firm’s expertise, but it also increases your risk of citation and copy errors, especially when working on a deadline. You need to be confident that your drafting and review process results in the greatest level of accuracy possible.

Thomson Reuters Drafting Assistant integrates with Westlaw, Practical Law, KeyCite, West km and more to help attorneys in the most efficient way possible so that they can stay focused on drafting their documents.
