This platform lets you skip the tedious manual work traditionally associated with legal deals, allowing users to work remotely with ease, efficiency, and precision. By using Dealcloser, teams can accelerate the deal-closing process, cut costs, minimize risks, and enhance client satisfaction.

Caravel leverages Dealcloser as an automated support to the deal closing process, allowing for our lawyers to work faster and more efficiently. What’s more — their document automation system reduces risk of possible errors and their client portal allows you to see the status of your deal at any time.

Haloo: Trademark registration can be a daunting and expensive process. Haloo is an AI-powered tool built to help small businesses navigate the trademark registration process. Haloo offers an Application Builder which simplifies the trademark application process by reviewing application language to ensure compliance with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) standards. Haloo also helps to streamline the application process.

Caravel leverages Haloo’s AI-powered legal search that supports in the preparation of trademark registrations. Through Haloo’s AI search, Caravel is also able to deliver a trademark watch service which allows us to monitor trademarks for potential infringements of your trademark rights. This service covers both US and Canadian jurisdictions, classes, and types of marks depending on needs and budget. Caravel’s watch service leverages Haloo to identify attempts to register with trademark offices or use identical or similar marks and allow you to respond. Haloo’s tools help us navigate your IP needs more efficiently.

Spellbook: Spellbook is the first generative AI copilot for legal professionals. Spellbook uses GPT-4 and other large language models to review and suggest terms for your contracts, right in Microsoft Word. Spellbook is trained on billions of lines of legal text, including case databases, form libraries, and statutes, ensuring accurate and relevant language in a nuanced, legal context. Spellbook even learns and uses your preferences over time. Their redline functionality also allows users to modify a legal document based on any instruction, like “negotiate” or “repurpose this contract for a new deal”. Spellbook takes care of the drudgery so your lawyers can trim down their time with a contract and focus their energy on strategic work.

Caravel has been working with the Spellbook team for several years. We were early testers and collaborators with their team on the development of their software. Currently, some of our lawyers use Spellbook’s AI copilot to draft and review contracts. The lawyers find it easy to use, especially as it integrates seamlessly into their existing legal workflow. We are convinced that Spellbook represents the future of contract drafting and review as it augments and enhances lawyers’ efficiency and work output.
