Law practice management company Clio said today that Lawyaw, the document automation software it acquired in 2021, will now be called Clio Draft.

The new name reflects a deepened integration of products and services since the acquisition, Clio says.

“Uniting under the Clio banner gives us a clear focus on delivering value to our customers,” said Clio founder and CEO Jack Newton. “It also sets us up to enhance the future capabilities of legal document innovation by consolidating and centralizing our efforts.

New said Clio will continue to invest in and grow its services in document automation as an essential component of its multi-product platform.

Clio Draft will maintain Lawyaw’s user interface and features, Clio said. Its features include:

  • Document automation to generate complex legal documents.
  • Collaborative editing for legal teams, allowing co-authoring and editing of documents.
  • Integration with other Clio products and third-party applications to enhance functionality.
  • Secure document storage.
  • Court form libraries covering more than 50 jurisdictions, allowing pre-saved sets of standard forms and the ability to auto-populate client and matter information.
  • E-signature capabilities with a secure audit trail to provide status updates about pending and submitted signatures.

Since acquiring Lawyaw, Clio says, it has invested in expanding the software’s scope and functionality. This includes expanding its court form libraries to cover all 50 states, as well as federal immigration forms.

Clio says it has also invested in expanding the team dedicated to building and supporting this product by more than 50%.

Under this new brand, Clio says, it plans to continue investing in and growing its document innovation capabilities.
