A note from the founders.
In our prior roles working in finance and Big Law, we saw firsthand the constraints that high volume legal work can impose on companies. The established approaches to handling recurring agreements – using internal resources or outsourcing them to traditional law firms – each possess drawbacks that can negatively impact employee focus, quality of work, and your bottom line.
We quickly realized that by combining a unique labor model with best-in-class technology, we could create an end-to-end solution that frees companies from those constraints. This led us to start InCloudCounsel. Now, we’re helping some of the world’s leading companies automate and enhance the delivery and management of their routine legal services.
Our labor model also enables top-tier corporate lawyers to design a life and legal practice unencumbered by traditional employment, geographic restrictions, and administrative burdens. Nothing makes us happier than to hear about the inspiring lives our lawyer partners are building around their partnership with InCloudCounsel. We have the great pleasure of supporting lawyers who are running nonprofits, writing children’s books, building small businesses, teaching college classes, and serving their community in local government.
Ultimately, we’re on one mission: to free our valued customers and lawyer partners from their past constraints so they can focus on what’s truly important to them.

InCloudCounsel works with a select group of some of the world’s top boutique law firms and solo practitioner lawyers who possess deep expertise in specific legal contract types. The lawyers working with InCloudCounsel have an average of nearly 14 years of experience. The majority of the lawyers working on our platform graduated from a top law school and have Big Law experience, and all have successfully passed a rigorous vetting process by InCloudCounsel.
InCloudCounsel’s Account Managers play a leading role in ensuring that we deliver a high quality, scalable solution for our customers. All InCloudCounsel Account Managers attended top law schools and have significant experience working at the world’s leading law firms on the largest and most complex corporate transactions. Each client’s Account Manager will work with the lawyers on the account to ensure that the level of service is excellent at all times. Once assigned to your account, the Account Manager will make lawyer introductions, build a customized “playbook” to document your negotiation preferences, and train the lawyers on those preferences so they can be carried out consistently and effectively.
We want our clients to feel confident in their lawyer teams, which is why your company will have full discretion to review and approve all InCloudCounsel lawyers who work with your team. Your Account Manager will make lawyer introductions to you based on their understanding of your company, the services to be provided, and the lawyers that we expect will be a “good fit” from a client-culture standpoint.

Our proprietary software platform is helping to redefine how technology can be used in corporate contracting to increase efficiency and harness data to add substantial value for our clients. Not only does our technology provide time-saving workflow management tools, but by capturing a robust amount of business and legal data from our clients’ legal agreements, we are also helping our clients manage their obligations in a more data-driven way and benchmark against what has been done historically so that they can negotiate more effectively in the future.
