A legal front door is a digital platform that enables a company's employees to submit legal review requests or report legal issues to its own in-house legal department. These requests include sales contract generation and review, vendor management, marketing compliance review, open source licensing reviews, generative AI review, and other types of legal services. By having a well-defined legal front door, organizations can improve the management of legal requests, ensure efficiency and consistency in legal processes, and enhance overall legal operations and delivery.
Streamline AI is a legal intake, triage, and workflow automation software platform purpose-built for in-house legal teams. Streamline AI optimizes the legal intake and task management process by gathering the information needed in forms and dynamically and automatically routing requests to the right point of contact for review and approval. This takes previously manual and time-consuming tasks for Legal and sets them on autopilot, so in-house legal departments can save time from administrative work and focus on legal analysis. From sales requests to product questions, Streamline AI helps legal counsel and legal operations work faster and smarter with their business partners.
Because legal request data is captured in Streamline AI, in-house legal teams have access to key Legal real-time metrics and KPIs, such as time in legal review and response time, which helps provide evidence of Legal’s impact on the business and identify opportunities for process improvement.

The benefits of such legal software can include:
Legal operations, also known as "Legal Ops", represents the business support side of an in-house legal department. It plays a pivotal role in enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the delivery of legal services by the in-house legal team. Legal Ops streamlines the operational aspects, encompassing areas such as legal technology implementation and ongoing support, budgeting and spending, project management, and analytics and reporting. This ensures that the legal department functions seamlessly, allowing in-house attorneys to dedicate more time to in-depth legal analysis instead of administrative work.
Streamline AI is a cloud-based legal software platform designed specifically for in-house legal in mind, based on first-hand experience working as in-house counsel. Our CEO Kathy Zhu co-founded Streamline AI based on challenges she faced as the first commercial counsel at Medallia and DoorDash. Dissatisfied with solutions that didn’t understand the nuances of in-house legal team operations, she partnered with Julian Wimbush, a product lead and former engineer at Google and now Streamline’s CTO, to create a better solution.
Streamline AI is a no-code solution that allows legal teams to build custom intake forms and automated review and approval workflows tailored to their organization. Workflows can be conditional based on form responses, ensuring that legal teams are able to capture what is needed without overwhelming the business user. Implementation only takes a few weeks without the need for a dedicated resource to build workflows. Because Streamline AI is no-code, it’s easy to modify and update forms and workflows within minutes, without needing to file a ticket or hire an expensive consultant.
Because the entire workflow is launched in and approvals are captured in Streamline AI, Streamline AI offers insights into key metrics for in-house legal teams to equip themselves to make better data-driven decisions. You can use Streamline AI's real-time dashboard to get clarity into key team metrics including SLA response time, time in legal review, month-over-month and quarter-over-quarter request volume changes in request volume, and more.
