Contract Solutions

Efficient analysis of contracts is critical to meeting regulatory requirements, recognizing business value, and reducing legal risk, yet many corporations lack an organized method to act upon their diverse contract universe.

FTI Technology’s Contract Solutions team helps organizations solve this problem by quickly identifying relevant insights from within large contract datasets, allowing them to understand important rights and obligations across industries and business units. The FTI team does this by combining leading-edge artificial intelligence and analytics technology, expert-designed workflows, and attorney review teams experienced in contract analyses and negotiation with a systems orientation.

What our experts do

Integrated End-to-End Contract Services


Contracts are identified and collected to create a secure, centralized document repository. Advance pattern matching technology can be used to sift contracts and categorize them according to particular review workflows.


Contracts are ingested and processed to automatically model contracts against libraries of clauses and extract specific legal and commercial points.


Contract terms are analyzed by FTI and presented to commercial and legal contract owners to determine the desired business outcome for the future event, e.g. restructuring, transactions, and integrations.


Each contract is given a disposition path using contract terms, financial information, and desired business outcome. FTI negotiation teams execute and report on the status of contract remediation to identify risk and meet deadlines.
