DocXtools for Legal

Making Word Work for the Legal Industry

DocXtools helps law firms efficiently draft and deliver documents that represent the highest quality image they want to portray by filling legal-specific functionality gaps in Microsoft Word and simplifying both the typical document drafting process and problem-solving efforts. DocXtools enables law firms to achieve greater drafting efficiency and document quality, resulting in enhanced firm productivity and client satisfaction.

Using DocXtools, lawyers and legal support teams can:

  • Draft high-quality documents faster—without advanced Word skills
  • Safely and efficiently reuse documents to prevent downstream stability issues and ensure longevity
  • Effortlessly adjust document formatting to comply with house styles without requiring advanced Word skills
  • Quickly recover from document issues to avoid impact to document delivery and stability
  • Make Word Compare a viable solution for lawyers



DocXtools for Legal – How We Help

Microsoft Word is the de-facto standard for law firms. Yet, it doesn’t fully meet the unique needs of the legal industry, so lawyers find clever ways to make Word-based workflows more efficient—sometimes with unintended document-related challenges and consequences.

This starts with the common habit of reusing an old document, which is by far the most efficient drafting approach. Add in the complexities associated with collaboration, less than expert Word skills, multiple document contributors, various file formats, as well as problematic third-party compare solutions, and the troubles escalate.

On complex matters with tight deadlines and reduced support staff, the result is often an unstable document with inconsistent formatting that must be fixed. If that document is presented to a client, the quality image the firm wants to portray is subject to question and the client may in turn ask for document production time to be discounted or even terminate the law firm. In fact, a recent ALM Legal Intelligence survey revealed that 51% of clients have terminated a law firm due to sub-par document quality or delivery.

Using DocXtools, law firms can maintain a high level of client satisfaction by ensuring safe document reuse and quick turnaround of problematic or poorly formatted documents, as well as supporting a more effective means for collaborating and comparing documents.
