The cloud-based document automation software for law firms reduces drafting time and enables lawyers to offer more affordable legal services. 

October 16, 2020 – Vancouver, BC — Documate, the world’s most secure and easy-to-use document automation platform, officially won Clio’s $100,000 Launch//Code grand prize at the eighth annual Clio Cloud Conference. The award was presented by Jack Newton, CEO and Co-Founder of Clio, during the closing remarks at the conference. 

“We’ve seen a tectonic shift in the number of lawyers adopting cloud technology in 2020, and Documate is supporting this movement by helping enable a vision for legal practice that is cloud-first by design,” said Newton. “As we continue to build the operating system for legal, the addition of Documate to Clio’s App Directory will be a major benefit to lawyers looking to improve ease and efficiency at their firms.” 

Documate is a document automation platform that cuts drafting time by 90%, enabling law firms to turn templates into workflows that populate client data into forms. 

Dorna Moini, Documate’s CEO and Co-Founder, who presented at the Launch//Code competition finals in front of a live virtual audience and judging panel, spoke to the value of legal technology in making a difference in the lives of lawyers and in increasing access to legal services. 

“There is an entire middle class who can’t afford to pay full bespoke hourly rates for legal services,” said Moini. “At Documate, we give lawyers technology to close the justice gap. We give them the ability to enable complex automation and to create mobile-accessible, client-facing technology.” 

“Documate is like the TurboTax of legal,” said Moini. “We give lawyers a toolset to build fully-fledged legal technology applications without having to hire a developer or learn how to code, allowing lawyers to automate their expertise.”

Documate was one of five finalists for Clio’s 2020 Launch//Code developer contest, which also included: Novaro Search, Discovery Genie, FirmScribe, and Kenect. Novaro Search also won the Viewer’s Choice Award, which was decided by an online poll of those who viewed the competition finals.

Kimberly Bennet, Founder and Attorney at K Bennet Law LLC and The Modern Legal Collective, Nicole Bradick, CEO and Founder at Theory and Principle, and Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase, made up the virtual panel of judges. Each finalist was rated based on a criteria of functionality and impact, innovation, and user experience.
