Key challenges for the legal industry
The Theft of Intellectual Property Commission states that intellectual property theft resulting from the lack of access permission control costs US companies roughly $600bn a year.
Law companies process tons of legal documents, from property claims to insurance, title deeds to court records. They need a unified, self-sustaining, and searchable database.
In the US, FINRA’s average time to closure for an arbitration case is 14 months, resulting in a 4,000-case backlog and an average 16-month wait for a regular arbitration hearing.
Since jurisdictions around the world require a proper, provable chain of custody. Documents that don’t comply with these requirements might become inadmissible in court.
Current notarization processes are drowning in bureaucracy and not only time-consuming but also costly. In the US alone, there are more than 4.4mln notaries (as per The National Notary magazine).
Manual signatures remain an integral part of legal certification procedures, requiring the physical presence of signatories and making legal processes unwieldy and slow.
