Artificial Lawyer Interview with Adam Nguyen

Online legal technology journal Artificial Lawyer interviews eBrevia's co-founder Adam Nguyen about the direction of eBrevia, the recent collaboration with Thomson Reuters, and the future of AI in legal tech.  According to Adam, "As things stand, purely human review is too costly, time-consuming, error-prone and not sustainable. While you’ll see an increasing share of contract review work shifting from law firms to ALSPs and similar, I expect that eventually everyone involved in contract review – whether it’s law firms, ALSPs, the Big 4 audit firms, or in-house legal departments – will adopt some form of AI-assisted solution."  You can read the rest of the interview by following the link below.
