Simplify data complexities and collaborate effortlessly

Collecting and extracting the right data, from your client for a case or transaction, is a time-consuming and resource-intensive process. Files and data are contained in multiple places, and across structured (ERP systems) and unstructured sources (emails, PDFs, invoices, contracts). The challenge isn’t just getting the access to the right data, it’s making sense of it.

Intelligent data solutions for legal firms

Legal firms and In-House Counsel

Legal professionals need a way of extracting messy data and transforming it into a standard format, no matter the client. They also need a tool that pulls all relevant data together, rather than having to go via multiple platforms to access client and external information. Finally, once this information is collated, they need it presented in a way that augments the lawyer, not automates them.

Similarly, In-House Counsel needs a way of bringing together the right internal and external data for use in legal matters they lead themselves, or for their external counsel. A quicker and easier way of doing this has the potential to save not only time, but resources, and enable legal professionals to perform higher-value tasks which utilise their unique skill sets and improve productivity.

Legal Common Data Models

Engine B is focused on solving these data issues by creating Common Data Models for professional services organisations across the audit and legal sectors. Our Common Data Models simplify data complexities by providing a shared data language for business and analytical applications to use.

Our professional services Common Data Models are the first step in creating a standard language of data and reducing the amount of time spent making sense of things referenced in different ways.

Legal Knowledge Graphs

Our real-estate/property Knowledge Graphs allow legal professionals to interrogate and analyse client data in a powerful, context-driven way.

A Knowledge Graph is a means to connect and represent knowledge in a graph-like format. A Knowledge Graph can sit on top of existing databases or on our Common Data Models to link data together, combining both structured and unstructured information.

Real-estate Knowledge Graphs

Our Knowledge Graphs are domain-focussed, for example, for property/real-estate and they combine with other sources, such as audit data and financial data to provide you with access to all the information you need. This enables professional services firms and in-house teams to seamlessly interact with non-legal services where necessary.

Engine B’s Legal Knowledge Graphs allow legal professionals to:

  • Access the data they need in unstructured documents.
  • Normalise client data into a standard and predictable model but maintain complete lineage back to the client’s underlying systems.
  • Search for documents and data by various attributes and analyse the data using intelligent context-driven views.
