Law firms and legal departments thrive on building a strong reputation and maintaining a competitive edge based on their track record. This requires quick and easy access to enterprise documents, including previous deals, contracts, and clauses, to inform legal strategies and provide context for current cases. However, accessing this valuable information can be extremely difficult and frustrating, as most firms still employ traditional keyword-based search engines, which are slow, error-prone, and unable to understand the context of a query.
So, what is semantic search and why is it necessary for law firms? In traditional keyword-based search, the engine relies on keywords to identify relevant documents. However, this approach can lead to irrelevant or incomplete results, especially when the query is ambiguous or uses synonyms. Semantic search, on the other hand, uses natural language processing (NLP) to understand the context of a query and retrieve the most relevant documents, even if they don't contain the exact keywords used in the query.
As AI expert and law professor Daniel Katz summarises in an issue of the Legal IT Insider, Document Management Systems had better come up with a plan - "you’re sitting on this huge pile of documents and people would like to be able to organise them and search the documents better and have a tool that allows you to connect the dots.” That's where we come in.
