Fasken Launches New Artificial Intelligence Initiative: Meese AI

Reading Time 2 minute read


Toronto (Canada) – Fasken today announced the launch of Meese AI. Meese AI has developed an artificial intelligence platform that helps lawyers automate, enable and enlighten legal tasks.

“We are incubating and using artificial intelligence to enhance the work of our lawyers: to increase quality and reduce costs for the benefit of our clients,” said Mark Bowman, founder of Meese AI and Counsel at Fasken. “We’ve built a platform to integrate with all aspects of legal work, to thrive within the demanding requirements of a top-tier law firm and to augment the already great work that our lawyers produce.”

Meese AI uses machine learning and natural language programming to assist lawyers in creating client deliverables. Its leading edge technology allows it to understand legal data and, among other things, highlight possible improvements within the document, providing the user with more insight into their work. It is designed to harmonize, integrate with and enhance a lawyers’ work. The current version of the AI platform includes a powerful proof reading tool that identifies drafting issues and a unique smart knowledge management tool that searches precedent clauses and allows for lawyers to curate their own precedent databases. With less time spent on repetitive tasks, more time can be spent on complex issues adding to the strategic value that clients expect.

Fasken helps its clients optimize innovative solutions and technologies that can be applied from routine tasks to complex business problems. This commitment began over 15 years ago with the development of a proprietary bundle of budgeting, analytical and project management tools.
