Core Features

For , the following are essential features, and you should therefore expect to see a check in every box in this section.


Product Security

Most AI products are built in such a way that they are inherently insecure. If this box is checked, the product or application claims to keep data secure and away from the prying eyes of the public. Although users should not put client information into these platforms, typically sensitive company information is safe.

Client Confidentiality

While some products are secure enough for your own data, others go the extra step of making sure no third party (even themselves) have access to any of the data in your AI product. In these cases, the provider claims that your data is secure enough to maintain your client's Attorney/Client privilege.

Marketing Tasks

Can this product be used for basic marketing tasks like blog creation, social media videos, or website images?

Documentation Assistance

Can this product be used to help document how to do something, whether internal or external facing?

Non-legal Research

Is this product helpful with basic, non-legal research?

Legal Research

Although answers from any large language model tool should be double checked by an appropriate expert, some products claim to be trained on legal specific information.

Basic Drafting

Will this product assist in basic drafting of non-legal specific documents (e.g. email, invoices, job descriptions)?

Legal Specific Drafting

Can this product be useful in handling legal specific drafting?

Contract Management

Can this product be used to create and manage contracts?

Additional Details about Henchman

Work with Your Existing Document Management Solution

Unlike some document-focused AI products, Henchman is storage-agnostic. Its AI needs to connect to your contract storage location, but it’s equally happy if that location is Google Drive, iManage, NetDocuments, OneDrive, or SharePoint. Henchman examines and synthesizes these “precedent documents” to create a library of searchable clauses and provisions.

Works Wherever Outlook and Word

Henchman appears as a side pane in Outlook and Word. Use that pane to find the relevant clause, definition, or other language based on the documents text and your search terms. Additionally, you can filter results based on characteristics like jurisdiction, author, contract type, as well as newest, most common, and last modified provision.
Once Henchman locates that “one provision you know you drafted buy can’t find,” Henchman offers the ability to modify for the current contract you’re drafting, including changing terms, party names, and more, using “smart replace.”
Henchman works in Microsoft Outlook and Word for Windows, Mac, and the web.”

Who Henchman is for

Henchman is for Microsoft Word-using attorneys who frequently draft or review contracts.
