Revolutionise your contracts.
nakhoda Rise is leading a revolution in the way legal contracts get generated, negotiated and analysed for business intelligence. From first draft to execution, Rise drives efficiency, data integrity and your bottom line.
Delivering legal data intelligence.
Contracts are a valuable source of legal and commercial data. Until now, accessing and leveraging the data locked up in contracts has been a difficult challenge to solve. By capturing structured legal data at the moment of contract creation, agreements become a powerful asset for real-time decision making.
Best-in-class companies have 78% of their contracts in a searchable, central repository vs 34% for the rest.
Rise enables high-performing legal teams to get more from their contracts. By distilling the essence of contract creation and negotiation into a streamlined workflow, Rise allows legal teams to increase their efficiency, reduce their email traffic and focus on substance over form.
Ineffective contract management costs businesses up to 9.2% of annual revenue.

Focus on what matters.
Rise’s election view is an entirely new way to interact with your documents. Each election allows you to focus on a distinct commercial or legal point, whilst Rise deploys Linklaters' built-in legal expertise to take care of the drafting.
Get from first draft to execution in a single platform. With bulk outreach for high-volume negotiations, built-in commenting, automatic email notifications and electronic signing, Rise incorporates powerful workflow tools to optimise your contracting process.
Approvals and audit trail.
Keeping track of internal approvals can be cumbersome. By managing approvals for deviations and documents in Rise, you can streamline internal processes and capture a full audit trail of every sign-off received.
Understand your legal data.
Rise captures legal data with market-leading granularity. Access a bespoke data model for your documents, in order to analyse insights across your document portfolio and inform your decision-making.

Rise has been developed with full read and write API access, allowing you to easily customise and automate workflows and downstream data. Operational and legal data can be retrieved in open formats directly from Rise, or streamed directly into your existing systems with our flexible APIs.
Protecting your data is one of our highest priorities. We offer both cloud and dedicated server deployments of Rise, in order to ensure exceptionally high levels of data security.
Where Rise is deployed on Linklaters' servers, all communications between our data centres operate over a fully resilient and dedicated encrypted private network.
