Use cases

A sample of real-life applications possible through the power of vLex APIs.

  • Knowledge management

    Organise, search and transform documents to your firm’s needs. vLex's Iceberg application can help you to identify data in documents, such as names, citations, and much more. These can be removed or transformed, and files can be exported into desired formats ready to be used by your staff or clients. Iceberg can also use built-in quality and novelty models to ensure the correct information is organised and presented in the right way for your firm.

  • Privacy, data and confidentiality

    In a world concerned with privacy, data and confidentiality, it is important to quickly identify sensitive data in large volumes of documents. Iceberg is equipped in identifying keywords, phrases, names, and citations to then be processed, removed or linked to internal or external documents. Iceberg can standardise file types, and send them on to different departments and individuals for review.

  • Litigation and risk management

    Create prediction models to understand the likelihood of winning an upcoming court case using your internal data with Iceberg. Review the financial impact of case outcomes, and identify experts within your firm by analysing their legal knowledge through documents to ensure you have the right people working on each case and client project.

  • Regulation flow

    Keep on top of changes to the law around the world and keep your global workforce up to date with these changes. Iceberg can connect your team and data with the most recent regulations and precedents, extracting the key information from legal documents and sending this directly to specific staff to ensure you can act quickly.

  • Emerging markets and trends

    Connect your documents and internal data, such as your billing hours, to understand the emerging trends from customer needs, how your staff are investing their time, and identify gaps and opportunities to expand your business into new areas. Iceberg can also identify staff who could benefit from training or working with others in your firm to improve areas of your clients’ work.

  • Investigation and due diligence

    Create tools to search and keep your teams up to date on individuals, organisations and changes in the law by using data from your own internal and external sources, such as vLex’s vast collection of case law and legal documents.
