What is Contractbook?

Contractbook is a Danish legal tech company backed by Google’s AI-fund, Gradient Ventures. We are on a mission to help people achieve better contracts through data-driven contract automation. We offer a digital contract management platform where our users are able to manage the entire lifecycle of their contracts in one flow. Create contracts with updated templates, sign them with a digital signature and organize them safely in the cloud. They can also collaborate in teams, execute the contract to fulfil obligations, and analyze their contracts to maximize their value. We also offer them an opportunity to integrate the platform with thousands of other apps and automate your workflow with our customized automations. Besides that, Contractbook also offers automated contract drafter and a client-portal for law firms. That is an advanced extension of the platform where lawyers can collaborate with their clients and support them in their day-to-day work. That allows the law firms to adopt a more client-centric and proactive approach with modern business models and new revenue streams. Contractbook was founded in Copenhagen in 2015 by Niels Martin Brøchner, Jarek Owczarek and Viktor Heide.
