“We understand lawyers’ and their clients’ needs and expectations.

We focus at all times on solutions from a lawyer’s perspective.”

BrightDraft helps lawyers translate document automation initiatives and other efficiency projects into fully implemented solutions to boost profit margins and reduce risk. Our experience enables much more effective document automation and service delivery strategies aligned with what will really assist lawyers, whilst reducing non-chargeable time commitments from busy lawyers during the automation process.

Simon Massey, founder and CEO, studied history at Cambridge University before studying law at the College of Law (England and Wales), obtaining the post-graduate diploma in legal practice with distinction.  He practised for ten years as a senior transactional corporate lawyer at national and international law firms in the City of London and Glasgow.

Simon advised on a wide variety of domestic and cross-border matters and led on many high value and complex transactions. He regularly drafted and negotiated suites of complex legal documents, developing strong drafting skills. As a corporate lawyer he is also familiar with legal documents used by many other specialist areas of law including banking, real estate, commercial, employment, tax and private client.

Simon has always promoted innovation and efficient working solutions to boost profit margins and reduce risk.

From 2015 he joined a new team at Maclay Murray & Spens (now Dentons) responsible for knowledge management and innovation, where he developed new working processes such as an M&A online project management platform, and built implementation strategies for lawtech such as document automation and artificial intelligence for due diligence work.

Simon further strengthened his drafting and legal expertise with responsibility for Corporate precedents and knowhow. He realised there is a gap between demand for automation (and other best practice / efficiency) solutions and actual implementation, often due to the challenge of bringing lawyers together with IT automation and other technical experts for long enough to produce effective solutions. At Dentons, Simon developed, assembled and automated the UK Corporate team’s precedents (including complex sale agreements) in a lawyer-friendly way, generating substantial time savings.

BrightDraft solves this challenge by combining legal drafting and precedent expertise, personal knowledge of what works best for lawyers and an applied understanding of automation software (particularly Contract Express). This maximises the benefits of automation and best practice solutions, and quickens the implementation process for our clients.
