They then add a zinger. “Corporate legal teams are now implementing these technologies to cover the entire organization, and we are seeing a trend with other departments adopting the same comparison tools the corporate legal department is using in order to ensure their own document accuracy.”
Must have missed that trend of legal departments verging into IT departments.
