Lexion Launches Stand-Alone Version of ‘AI Contract Assist,’ Expanding Gen-AI Powered Contract Review to a Broader Audience

Today Lexion, the AI-powered contract management and operations workflow platform, introduced a new stand-alone suite of tools to transform the way businesses manage contracts. AI Contract Assist substantially reduces the time legal professionals spend on repetitive contract review and management tasks, and accelerates redlining and drafting with a GPT-powered legal copilot that puts the power of generative AI inside Microsoft Word.

Initially launched in 2022, Lexion’s AI Contract Assist was the first GenAI-driven legal tech software available in the market. While these features were previously available to users of Lexion's end-to-end CLM platform, they are now available to anybody who deals with contracts.

AI Contract Assist offers four distinct contracting features:

  • Review: Accelerates contract review by checking your contracts against predefined rules and playbooks. AI Contract Assist comes pre-loaded with five industry standard playbooks for common contract types, which can be easily edited, or new rules can be added from scratch. AI Contract Assist flags contract language that needs your attention and suggests redlines to bring it back into compliance.
  • Ask: AI Contract Assist allows you to ask questions – in colloquial language – and get detailed, customized answers specifically relating to your contracts.
  • Modify: AI Contract Assist generates redline recommendations based on your requests, to any language you select.
  • Add: AI Contract Assist generates new clauses from scratch, so you never have to start from a blank page again.

AI Contract Assist was specifically designed to address the most prominent pain points identified by hundreds of legal professionals in Lexion’s recent ‘The Current State of Legal Tech’ survey. Half or more of respondents indicated that ‘removing repetitive tasks,’ ‘completing work more quickly and efficiently,’ and ‘improving work product consistency’ are specific benefits that legal departments expect from using AI software going forward. AI Contract Assist’s features deliver against all three areas.

“Our team of attorneys and contract managers used to spend too much time on trivial tasks,” said Vi Duong, Vice President of Legal at Adswerve, Inc. “Lexion’s AI Contract Assist is leading the curve in terms of cutting-edge AI innovation; it’s head-and-shoulders above other platforms because it meets our attorneys and contract managers where they are today, using tools that they’re already familiar with. By integrating seamlessly into Microsoft Word, the learning curve is negligible while the time it saves us on tasks related to contract review is substantial.”

“We regularly engage with thousands of attorneys who work in dozens of different industries, from retail to healthcare to biotech,” said Emad Elwany, CTO and co-founder, Lexion. “Yet they all share common complaints when it comes to contract review. AI Contract Assist alleviates these pain points by handling many of the tasks typically assigned to junior legal professionals. Leveraging Lexion’s award-winning AI, AI Contract Assist is a significant advancement that frees up legal professionals to focus on higher-level tasks while still negotiating the best contracts in a fraction of the time – and we’re thrilled to make it available as a stand-alone.”

In addition to making AI-powered contract review available to more legal professionals, Lexion’s stand-alone AI Contract Assist also offers an easy path to incorporate the full power of Lexion’s CLM later, should they need a platform to handle end-to-end contracting.

The $39-million investment is the largest investment the company has made in its semiconductor equipment and services business.

EMD Electronics implements a strategic workforce plan that includes working with key educational institutions and veteran recruitment efforts.

EMD Electronics, the Electronics business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, in the U.S. and Canada, celebrated the grand opening of its newest factory in Chandler, Arizona, today. The opening of the site is part of the "Level Up" growth program announced in late 2021. The factory features a 75,000-square-foot building that doubles the company’s manufacturing capacity in the U.S. to produce equipment for its Delivery Systems & Services (DS&S) business, which provides high-quality delivery and storage of specialty chemicals and gases. The $39-million investment in the new site is the largest investment the company has made in its semiconductor equipment and services business, which has become a key growth driver thanks to a strong business pipeline. With this investment, EMD Electronics will further support the growing presence of key semiconductor players in the thriving semiconductor ecosystem in the state of Arizona.

“The global semiconductor market’s long-term outlook is strong and so is our commitment to purposefully expand our capacities and services in the immediate vicinity of our customers,” said Kai Beckmann, Member of the Executive Board of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, and CEO Electronics. “We’re excited about the growth trajectory of our Delivery Systems & Services business, and proud to open a new site in Arizona and strengthen our presence in this premier destination for semiconductor production. Today’s opening symbolizes our confidence in the future of our industry and our promise to take our business and our people to new heights.”

Katherine Dei Cas, Head of the Delivery Systems & Services business unit within the Electronics business sector of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, added: “Our equipment, delivery services, and technical expertise are fundamental to enabling the operational excellence required in semiconductor manufacturing. By increasing our manufacturing capacities and advancing our workforce strategy, we’re keeping up with our customers as the semiconductor ecosystem continues to expand. It’s an honor to be part of the collaborative effort by leaders and advocates from the public and private sectors to contribute to the momentum of our industry.” 

The grand opening celebration was attended by the Governor of Arizona, Katie Hobbs, and the Mayor of Chandler, Kevin Hartke. Senator Mark Kelly delivered a video speech. Industry leaders and representatives from the City of Chandler, the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Arizona Commerce Authority, and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC), convened at the event that took place at the new facility’s production area. “The grand opening of EMD Electronics is yet another example of Arizona’s new era as a hub for innovation and technology,” said the Governor of Arizona, Katie Hobbs. “I’m happy to welcome another great company that will further grow our state’s semiconductor ecosystem. Historic semiconductor investments are rippling across our state, supporting the establishment and growth of new businesses, like EMD Electronics here today.” 

"We are excited to welcome EMD Electronics to our business community," said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. "It is industry leaders like EMD Electronics that have made Chandler a community of innovation and thriving hub for the semiconductor industry." 

“EMD Electronics’ new facility bolsters Arizona’s reputation as an epicenter for advanced semiconductor operations,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “EMD Electronics is a valued addition to Chandler’s rapidly-growing semiconductor ecosystem, expanding the state’s semiconductor supply chain while contributing to the continued growth of Arizona’s semiconductor industry.”

“Since starting operations in June, EMD Electronics has made an immediate impact on the burgeoning Chandler semiconductor ecosystem,” said Greater Phoenix Economic Council President & CEO Chris Camacho. “The company joins a deep industry around the region, and as Greater Phoenix has become semiconductor central in the United States, it has also grown into a home for a number of international companies taking advantage of the business environment and workforce.”

Expansion activities highlight the company’s commitment to strengthening supply chain resilience and supporting talent pipeline

As the industry ramps up semiconductor production to keep pace with forecasted demand, the investment in the new site will supplement the company’s ability to support customers’ expansion plans and secure supply resilience and reliability. 

With an efficient manufacturing design for optimal product throughput, the new factory doubles EMD Electronics' manufacturing capacity to produce its GASGUARD® and CHEMGUARD® systems in the U.S. The site also features a 75,000-square-foot building, a 6,000-square-foot clean room, and a 2,000-square-foot training center. The training center is designed to support manufacturing and services onboarding. 

Manufacturing operations in the new site started in June 2023. Since then, staffing levels have grown to greater than 100 total employees. As part of its workforce strategy, EMD Electronics has robust university relations and a veterans program in place to nurture the industry’s and its own talent pipeline. The company continues to actively engage in a concerted effort to advance emerging talent in collaboration with key stakeholders – such as the SEMI Foundation, Arizona State University (ASU), the Maricopa County Community College District, the Tempe Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee, among others. 

In April 2023, the company announced a roughly $300 million investment in its semiconductor manufacturing site in Hometown, Pennsylvania, now the world's largest integrated Specialty Gases facility.
