Litera showcases new legal GenAI capabilities at Microsoft Build as one of the first legal tech vendors to deliver a Microsoft Copilot plug-in

For over 25 years, Litera and Microsoft have worked together to enhance Microsoft Word for legal professionals. Now, Litera is part of an exclusive group of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) across industries partnering with Microsoft to amplify the impact of Copilot and Microsoft 365.

This May, Litera announced a deeper collaboration with Microsoft to deliver a seamlessly integrated and intelligent experience for lawyers by combining Litera solutions with Copilot within Microsoft 365. Further solidifying its leadership in the industry, Litera was selected as one of only a few ISVs in the legal space to showcase innovations at the prestigious Microsoft Build conference. There, Litera unveiled three groundbreaking capabilities designed to empower legal firms and revolutionize how legal professionals work, driving improved realization rates and increased attorney satisfaction:

  1. Drafting and Knowledge Management capabilities in Microsoft Office 365 Add-ins
  2. A legal industry-first set of Copilot plug-ins for an upcoming component of Litera Foundation currently set to launch at ILTACON in August 2024
  3. A legal writing assistant add-in for Litera Drafting and Microsoft Word

At Microsoft Build, Litera became among the earliest legal tech vendors to deliver Microsoft plug-ins to the Microsoft Copilot Plugin Store by unveiling the Litera Search Copilot plugin, a Copilot extension that enables users to execute complex matter and legal precedent searches against both Litera Foundation, its flagship knowledge management platform used by more than 50% of top legal firms, and legal content stored in the firm’s Document Management Software (DMS), respectively. This groundbreaking innovation unlocks the power of AI and allows firms to tap into their experience data (client, matter, lawyer, and third-party profiles) for deeper insights and deliver AI-powered guidance via Copilot to win more business and exceed client expectations.

Additionally, Litera was featured in Microsoft’s Unleash AI-powered Extensibilities in Word/Excel/PowerPoint session where we showcased the Litera Copilot plug-in for Drafting tools. This industry-leading solution provides seamless, dynamic, AI-powered search and document retrieval, functionality across any Microsoft Office applications, and natural language search against matter and content attributes to instantly incorporate existing work and previous matters into new documents. These advancements empower attorneys with unparalleled efficiency and intelligent insights, transforming the way legal work gets done.

Litera continues to lead the charge in legal tech by revolutionizing legal work with its groundbreaking Microsoft Office 365 Add-ins. These tools empower lawyers to:

  • Draft contracts in minutes, not hours – a dramatic improvement in efficiency.
  • Effortlessly manage the entire drafting lifecycle – create, check, compare, and clean – within Microsoft Office, eliminating the need to switch applications.
  • Leverage the power of GenAI to instantly access a firm’s collective knowledge to answer complex questions and gain instant market insights.

As Litera, the legal industry’s most trusted tech partner, deepens its Microsoft alliance, it unlocks a future of unmatched collaboration and AI-powered transformation by streamlining workflows and fostering innovation for a more efficient legal experience unparalleled with speed, accuracy, and intelligence.
