VLex Have Been Busy……

Here’s some of their latest highlights

New collaboration with Mishcon de Reya

Earlier this year, vLex won the tender to work with Mishcon de Reya on a once in a generational project that sought to revolutionise the dissemination of court judgements by making them easily available via The National Archives. vLex’s data and award-winning AI technology were both relied on to process and link documents. The vLex team are delighted to have worked on this exciting project, and are proud to be using technology to support greater access to legal information.
