THE COMPANY

eBrevia (eBrevia.com) is a venture-backed company in New York City. Our natural language processing technology, developed in partnership with Columbia University, is used by law firms, audit and consulting companies, and corporations to automate the reading and summarization of legal documents. eBrevia’s products have a wide range of applications, including legal due diligence, document and knowledge management, and contract drafting.  

We are designing the second wave of legal software—moving beyond simple databases that let the user organize information to artificially intelligent systems that actively assist the lawyer, using machine learning, natural language processing, and data miningto help them make sense of the reams of information, all within a slick, web-based UI running on a scalable cloud backend. We are curious, intelligent people and are looking for the same.
