Our Cael ELM suite supports both MANAGING and PERFORMING legal work
What's in a name?
Cael, pronounced kale, is the Latin root for ‘sky’ – a good name, we think, for cloud software designed to help take our customers’ legal operations to a higher level.
Get a grip on your contracts
Practical solution for LIBOR
In response to the growing need for LIBOR-related contract analytics, we have built a LIBOR-focused version of ContraxSuite. Trained on tens of thousands of financial contracts, ContraxSuite can find and label important LIBOR-related clauses, including fallback provisions.
Many organizations never realize the benefits of contract analytics because they struggle to locate their contracts. ContraxSuite doesn’t just analyze legal material; it also identifies legal material within the sea of other documents and files in your organization.
- Search shared drives, mail servers, and cloud services
- Automatically identify legal agreements or compliance material
- Ingest and OCR documents from Word, WordPerfect, PDF, HTML, etc.
- Built to process thousands of files per day
Automatically identify legal material among your sea of files and communications
Automatically match duplicate or near-duplicate documents like executed copies, revisions, and amendments
Extract key terms like effective or termination dates, unit prices, discount or interest rates, and parties
Automatically group and tag documents into related clusters by content or metadata
Locate key clauses and references like assignment restrictions, termination clauses, or regulatory requirements
Export your data and generate reports to visualize key information, such as jurisdiction. Integrate with downstream systems like contract or matter management
Legal project management simplified
Our cloud-based app improves collaboration and communication between corporate legal departments and law firms. Cael Project (previously Cael LPM) streamlines legal project management for lawyers, with a practical approach and a user-friendly interface that works on desktops, laptops, tablets and iPhones.
In addition to helping law firms to successfully manage projects against budget and schedule, the app has been extended for corporate legal departments, providing oversight of all projects across all outside counsel firms, without having to log into different law firm systems.

Streamlined legal RFPs
Cael Select is a data-driven outside counsel selection tool for the modern legal department.
RFPs: A necessary evil
In-house teams face increasing pressure to get consistently high value services for predictable costs. Even with a carefully-vetted panel, challenges abound in consistently managing legal spend and buying behaviors. Running the RFP process, especially across multiple bids can devolve into email chaos, spreadsheet hell and time-consuming administration. Bottom line: the information doesn’t organize itself.
- Leverage our efficient, easy-to-use system for engaging and evaluating outside counsel in the RFP process
- Easily scope and create a new matter; send it to one or many Firms; receive, compare and score proposals within the platform; and select your Firm
- Track and monitor the buying behaviors of the legal team via the Select GC Dashboard
