Patent for smart legal documents granted for Oxford based tech company

A patent has been granted for innovative real time knowledge graphs created by technology company Legislate.

Legislate has created a new contract management software which makes disconnected data usable and searchable at scale, built on unique knowledge graph technology.

‘How many employees with a tenure greater than three years are on a 30-day notice period’? -These knowledge graphs can help employers instantly answer such complex questions.

Law firms can keep a keep a track of their business’ health without needing to query different departments for answers as insights can be changed in real time.

It’s big news for the business which only a week ago announced the early release of its public API to select software partners, which will allow them to offer Legislate’s contract creation and management capabilities to their users.

Legislate CEO Charles Brecque, said: “The grant of our second patent confirms that we are a leader in the application of knowledge graphs to contracts. Contract intelligence is largely untapped because it is either trapped in pdfs or in disconnected spreadsheets which are hard to locate and maintain.

“With the recent release of our public API, we aim to synchronise contract data with the systems which connect to contracts so that end-to-end contracting workflows can be streamlined effortlessly.”

Having just onboarded the first cohort of software partners to its public API, Legislate is now targeting roll-outs with dozens of software partners across the UK so that thousands of businesses can benefit from streamlined contracting.
