At Gravity Stack, contract intelligence is our bread and butter. Although our team was forged in the eDiscovery trenches, we have applied our expertise to extracting data out of contracts. We have seen, through conversations with both our client base and prospects, a great deal of confusion surrounding contract lifecycle management (CLM) and contract tech. Recently, our Managing Director Bryon Bratcher coauthored a post on Legal Evolution that tries to simplify this rather complex topic. So, whether you are a legal department, law firm or a strategic acquirer and you are considering investing in contract tech, this article is a great place to get started. Here are some of the topics covered:

A Diverse Set of Buyers

The Contract Tech Opportunity
Why many of the biggest technology companies in the world are investing in contract tech.
