LawVu Business Portal is our newest dedicated portal, through which business users can connect directly with their legal team. It replaces the classic LawVu 'Home', bringing new enhancements that make collaboration between legal teams and Business users more efficient.

Contributors/In-House Legal Users/Administrators
