UX enhancements just for you
You've loved the latest contract enhancements and next-generation workspace hub and we've used your direct feedback to make even more improvements to make LawVu work better for you.
Resize your panel for a better view
We made improvements to your contract management experience last month and you gave us great feedback! The contract details panel can now be resized to your preferred width so it’s easier to view and update contract metadata.
New hub widgets! (coming soon)
Based on popular feedback, we're adding two new widgets to your hub - matters view & contracts view - allowing you to add one or more of your favourite grid views for quick access from the hub. We'll let you know when they are live.
Make your work visible in less time
LawVu Teams are a great way to quickly make sure that the right people get access to contracts and matters, with auto and manual assignment options available. When you need to give multiple groups of people (teams) access at once, use the Team Inheritance option. This creates a relationship where one team always gets access and has visibility into another team's work.
For example, you want your head office to be able to see the things a satellite office is working on. No problem -- use Team Inheritance! Go to the Access Control section via Settings and select "Other Teams" from the dropdown. The selected teams will then also be granted access to matters and contracts that are assigned to this team - so they can maintain visibility without being assigned every time.
Nelson City Council wanted to a smarter way to manage work, keep records of received requests and report on the work the team and external lawyers were working on. With LawVu, they have streamlined their workflows, increased team efficiency and collaboration with the wider business, and can engage more effectively with external counsel.

AI-powered contract data extraction
Having complete and accurate data in your system is key to managing contracts more efficiently and reducing business risk, but managing an ever-growing number of contracts can be a daunting task. LawVu leverages the power of AI to automatically extracts and highlight key data from executed contracts. This frees up legal time from having to read pages of contracts to capture critical contract data. No more missed deadlines and more time back for high-value work!
Join our product launch webinar to see this functionality in action.
Salesforce integration enhancements
Business users have always been able to create contracts, get visibility on contract statuses, and easily download a copy of the contract document once it is executed without leaving Salesforce. Now you and your Salesforce users can work more efficiently together with these updates:
Create one or more matters from an opportunity in Salesforce, to engage legal throughout the sales process
When key contract data stored in Salesforce is updated those updates flow through to LawVu
Upload a new version of a contract from Salesforce directly into LawVu
