  • icn_fully_styled

    Fully styled documents

    Generated documents will be one or more fully compliant .doc, .docx or locked PDFs. Each document is meaningfully named and fully styled, with numbering, cross references, pagination, headers/footers, footnotes, and table of contents – all as determined by the Word template using standard law firm Word styles and tools, and all without requiring any post assembly intervention to apply or correct Word styling.

Win & Retain Key Clients


Internal document assembly can offer firms a lot of advantages. However, to win and retain key clients firms must offer something truly innovative. Today's most competitive law firms differentiate their services by offering document automation directly to their clients. To attract new clients law firms leverage document assembly to showcase their capabilities on their websites. Learn more about how you can plug into your clients' business.
