DASH: The Legal Alignment Platform
DASH is the world's first cloud-based, AI-powered legal project management platform, bringing real project management to legal matters — regardless of size and scope. Built by lawyers for lawyers, DASH automates matter management and the process improvement that comes from applying Lean principles to the practice of law. Put simply, DASH does the heavy lifting so lawyers can ... practice law.
DASH is also the world's first interoperable legal dashboard, capable of integrating the many technologies supporting a 21st-century legal practice or legal department. How? We're designing DASH intentionally to play well with others. Which means DASH users need only go to one place — their DASHboard — instead of living in multiple platforms and applications. Each DASHboard is customizable, elegant, and intuitive, doing exactly what needs to be done. Nothing more, nothing less.
