We started the company because we saw that there wasn't anything "just right" for managing a mainstream contract portfolio or in-house legal department. Justin had been a partner in a major law firm, and then an in-house lawyer and senior executive in an international pharmaceutical company. Richard had been working as a technology and business consultant in the financial services industry. We saw a compelling need for a new approach. So we combined our skills, and took on the challenge of making something simpler and better for the needs of mainstream contract managers and in-house legal departments.

what some clients tell us

I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance and support in getting the system configured and up and running. It is proving to be an invaluable resource for the legal team.
I love this system. Our area loves LEX so much they’ve asked for additional licences.
We have found the database to be a wonderful tool to assist us in our work. So thanks again for your invaluable support.
I am LEX-ing like there is no tomorrow and finding the system invaluable. The rest of the team are getting into the groove as well!
Always happy to talk about LEX to potential users – we love it!
I am really happy with the way LEX is going and the feedback from the staff is extremely positive. The reporting function has assisted us greatly in our end of financial year reports to show our benchmarks have been achieved.
My team love LEX. In short they are finding it simple to use (and trust me there are varying levels of skills here!), fit for purpose and it's providing them a great platform to manage their own workload. They're also enjoying being able to see each others cases. From my perspective it gives me great visibility of the teams work, and capability to review / plan more effectively.
