Artificial intelligence being deployed pre-Brexit to help update financial services contracts

In what has been described as one of the largest contract update and re-drafting exercises in history, legal services provider Axiom is now able to provide an AI (artificial intelligence) based process designed specifically to help companies update over 7.5 million financial services agreements and contracts in the run-up to Brexit.

Axiom, an alternative provider of legal services employing over 2,000 people globally, claim to be ‘uniquely placed’ to deal with the looming legal challenges that Brexit will bring, as they already handle over 1 million contracts each year covering areas such as trading and derivatives and other complex financial instruments.

It is imperative that financial services businesses are certain that the contracts and agreements covering their activities will be legally binding across all territories they are active in. Axiom claim that advances in AI mean that thousands of disparate contracts and agreements, often created at different times and stored in multiple locations within a business, can now be quickly and accurately read, analysed and categorised automatically, greatly reducing the amount of direct human involvement and thus saving time and money.

In highlighting Axioms advantages over more traditional firms, executive vice president of global solutions Chris DeConti says that:

Brexit requirements cut across such a wide range of contracts and cover so many lines of business that legacy models for handling this work are untenable. “The scale of the Brexit challenge cries out for a different kind of solution, which is exactly what we aimed for in designing BrexitBridge.”

DeConti added:

The magic circle firms are focussed on legal advisory work and Brexit requires enormous amounts of that. They have plenty to do…because we handle more contracts each year than any law firm, we have the volume of contracts needed to train AI systems and machine learning. It’s very hard for law firms to replicate that.”

If you are in a commercial contract dispute because you don't agree with the meaning of the contract terms, someone has breached the contract by failing to fulfil their part of the agreement or you were induced to enter into a contract on a false premise, our specialist team can help you find an affordable and expert commercial contract lawyer.

  • Moves by Russian billionaire and oligarch Vitaly Orlov to keep secret a worldwide freezing order worth £266m has been recently rejected by the High Court in London. in the latest twist in a dispute over the ownership of a fisheries company being heard in London. Orlov’s attempts to keep the freezing order secret is the latest chapter in a long-running dispute over the ownership of fisheries company Norebo Group. The freezing order was obtained by former business partner Alexander Tugushev as part of the protracted legal dispute to secure his one third share of the Murmansk based business. It was argued by Orlov’s legal team that Tugushev should not able to reveal details of the global freezing order to related business partners and parties without Orlov’s consent or the permission of the court, claiming that this would effectively be self-incrimination. Alexander Tugushev,... Read More

  • Formula One, the world’s premier motorsport championship looks likely to be plunged into a legal battle soon after a prospective buyer of the Force India F1 team considers suing administrators over “serious concerns about the conduct of the bid process.” Russian company Uralkali, made a serious bid to buy the team after Force India fell into administration in this summer. The team had been owned by charismatic Indian entrepreneur Vijay Mallya, Dutch businessman Michiel Mol and Indian conglomerate Sahara. Mallya, who is currently the subject of extradition proceedings by the Indian Government to force his return to the UK from India, was worth an estimated $1.5 billion at his peak in 2010, but his fortunes have declined significantly since then. The Uralkali bid ultimately failed, with the administartors agreeing a sale of the mid-table team to a consortium led by Lawrence... Read More

  • A recent decision by the European Parliament approving a new copyright law could have major implications for online user generated content and may even ‘destroy the internet as we know it’ according to user groups. The changes to the EU Copyright Directive were recently voted in by MEP’s in Strasbourg. The vote has added additional clauses to the existing legislation, namely Articles 11 and 13, dubbed by independent commentators as the ‘link tax’ and ‘upload filter’. The legislation has been updated to bring EU copyright law up to date and fit for purpose for the internet age, and as is so often the case with such changes, its impact is likely to be far greater than originally intended. The decision will now be presented to the 28 EU countries before finalising the detail in law. The new laws will allow companies to... Read More
