Vol. 9 | Contracts are not built on hope, but on collaboration 💫

Hi there,

Rebellions are built on hope 💫
But contracts ... are built on collaboration.

That, dear reader - would be the only Star Wars reference in this newsletter, I promise ✋. If you are a fan, I hope you had as much fun geeking out as some of us did. And if you’re not, we got some pretty great content for you nonetheless. 📖

The 4th edition of #LegalMatters features Shiv Vyas, GC of Compusoft Group. It is an interesting discussion on the impact commercially-minded GCs can bring to the table. Catch the full interview here.👇


Okay, now for something a little different. If you’ve ever had smart ideas to hack together simple tools/tech that lawyers can use, this is your time to shine.

- Then there's a frenemy story that left us somewhat confused - Amazon and Microsoft team up to defend against facial recognition lawsuits. With elements like training algorithms to differentiate people of color and a few (mis)used photos, this is an interesting case overall to exercise your argumentative skills 🏛️.


Hey, you’re still here - so let's discuss what we were talking about at the start of this email - contract collaboration. Editing contracts feels better as a team sport. So we built something very, very cool - real-time multi-editor support on SpotDraft. 💣

See changes to your contract, as they happen. Leave comments or clarify doubts instantly. And collaborate the way you’ve always wanted to. 👇
