Henchman Pioneers With a First-of-its-Kind Microsoft Copilot Integration, Helping Legal Professionals Tap Into Their Collective Knowledge With the Help of AI

Ghent (BE) – March 6, 2024 – Henchman, the fastest contract drafting experience ever made, is proud to announce its integration with Microsoft Copilot, marking a significant milestone in the legal technology (LegalTech) industry. This pioneering collaboration empowers legal professionals to harness the power of collective knowledge, streamline drafting processes, and enhance efficiency like never before, all while securely leveraging AI and benefiting from the best security protocols available from Microsoft.


With this integration, Henchman users can seamlessly access suggestions directly from their Document Management System (eg. iManage, NetDocuments, SharePoint…) when looking for answers through Microsoft Copilot. Leveraging advanced algorithms and metadata, this synergy facilitates more accurate answers and boosts drafting efficiency, all while tapping into a legal team’s wealth of collective knowledge. The integration ensures that users benefit from the best security protocols provided by Microsoft – who announced in July 2023 its support for new voluntary commitments crafted by the Biden-Harris administration to help ensure that advanced AI systems are safe, secure, and trustworthy.


“As a current customer of Henchman, we are excited to learn about Henchman’s integration with Microsoft Copilot, a product that we are currently exploring for our firm,” said Nicole Stefanelli, Special Counsel & Director of Knowledge Management at Lowenstein Sandler LLP.

“The potential of the ability to access relevant suggestions, from our existing document management system, directly within Copilot would streamline drafting processes and has the potential to be a game-changer for legal professionals. We are excited for this possibility in the future.”


The integration between Henchman and Microsoft Copilot is a testament to both companies’ commitment to driving innovation and empowering legal professionals to excel in their roles. By bridging the gap between technology and legal expertise, this collaboration sets a new standard for efficiency, accuracy, and collaboration in contract drafting and negotiation. All whilst ensuring data remains encrypted and safeguarded from training LLMs – guaranteeing contractual boundaries are met.


“At Henchman, we are dedicated to augmenting the way legal professionals work, wherever they work,” said Jorn Vanysacker, co-founder at Henchman. “Our integration with Microsoft Copilot represents a significant milestone in our journey to empower legal teams with the tools they need, whenever they need them, so they can thrive and become more efficient in their daily workflow.”


Similar to Microsoft Copilot’s availability for the general audience, Henchman’s Microsoft Copilot integration is now available via early access for early adopters of Microsoft Copilot.
