We’ve evolved over the years – and so has the scope of our work.
We started out as a legal staffing company and have since grown to become the leading provider of legal services to major Fortune 500 firms across the globe. We work closely with General Counsel and Chief Risk and Compliance Officers to help their companies successfully tackle litigation and investigation matters, identify and address compliance and risk issues, and to drive efficiency within their legal departments.
Evolving regulatory regimes and an exponential growth in data have created enormous legal challenges for companies. We’re here to help. We offer a wide array of legal services and have developed sophisticated processes and solutions to help clients in the areas of litigation and investigations, compliance and risk, and corporate and in-house services.
We offer extensive document review and e-discovery services, analyze large volumes of data to provide insightful and actionable fact development, and provide end-to-end case planning and management. By streamlining the discovery process and enhancing early insight, we help our clients to create a confident and compliant disclosure process or relationship with regulators.
Our services include:
Regardless of the individual engagement, our processes are designed to leverage knowledge every step of the way and to use that information to keep counsels informed throughout the life of a matter.
As the regulatory environment grows and becomes more complex, our compliance and risk services are focused on the nexus between performance and risk management. Our expertise lies in helping our clients take large amounts of data and filtering them to the important facts, an essential process in the compliance and risk space.
As companies become increasingly globalized, it’s important that they ensure that all third parties they engage with are thoroughly vetted. We conduct third party checks annually and at specific instances of re-engagement, and we’ve teamed up with Dow Jones, a leading provider of Anti-Corruption watch lists, to help us do this.
Contract Management Lifecycle:
We provide full contract lifecycle management services through our Clutch Portal, a proprietary service that facilitates everything from contract drafting to negotiation to execution. The Clutch Portal tracks all changes made throughout the contract lifecycle and serves as an ideal hosting mechanism for contract abstraction and for gap analysis.

We support a variety of Fortune 500 companies to enable better legal and business decision-making. We understand the way small, localized issues manifest into global, board-level headaches. Our focus allows us to understand problems unique to your industry and how they impact your organization.
The financial services industry has seen a massive increase in regulation and oversight, and we’re well-equipped to help companies adapt to these changes. We currently serve as a legal outsourcing partner to three of the top seven financial services institutions.

We’ve worked with some of the biggest players in the technology industry on large-scale IP litigation and regulatory issues and in supporting their in-house legal departments across the contract management lifecycle.
We’ve helped companies in the energy space tackle a variety of litigation and investigation matters, such as fraud in the global cap and trade carbon market, tax and accounting issues in natural resource trading, and employment cases.

The Clutch Lab has been built to integrate our understanding of industries and the problems that impact them with our expertise in process and technology. The result is bespoke, full-managed products and services that intelligently extract, analyze, and create narratives from big data.
We developed LAECS (Legal Agreement Extraction and Codification System) to help financial services companies manage their risk across their business functions. LAECS extracts key data references from all forms of legal and financial agreements, allowing for easy sorting, searching, and analysis. We provide LAECS as a fully-managed service, from data collection to analysis and recommendations.MORE +
Data extracted by LAECS is subsequently reviewed by and validated by a team of experts. This process enables Clutch Group to efficiently reconcile inaccurate, inconsistent or flawed reference data and return accurate and fully validated reference data that can be immediately imported back into downstream systems affording its clients the opportunity to more efficiently respond to regulatory requests and compliance demands.
LAECS has been used extensively in the derivatives documentation space, especially in managing the ISDA contract life cycle by automating the capture and reconciliation of key reference data for ISDA related documentation, including, but not limited to, ISDA Master Agreements, Schedules to Master Agreements, and ISDA Credit Support Annexes.Contact Us Case study Learn more
Most companies do not have the proper systems and capabilities in place to assess risk as it emerges, or to identify real-time behavior that goes against regulatory statutes and internal governing principles—behavior that could result in future large-scale litigation and investigation issues.MORE +
We’re developing comprehensive surveillance solutions to help clients take risk and compliance into their own hands. Our surveillance tools integrate event-driven data extraction and tracking, ongoing compliance monitoring, and a dedicated team infrastructure to allow our clients to better understand their world and to isolate analysis to points of suspicion. We are able to process all data – structure, unstructured, audio, email – and for a variety of risk and compliance purposes. Our tools are currently being used to identify mis-selling and in trade reconstruction, proactive surveillance, and litigation discovery.Contact Us
Our Clutch Remediation Platform (CRP) is an all-in-one, fully-integrated solution used to manage large, complex sets of data, from processing through review and analysis. We’ve used our platform to help our financial clients manage large-scale remediation efforts around mis-selling, sales appropriateness, AML, KYC, and other compliance-related issues.MORE +
By allowing all data to reside in one location throughout a project lifecycle, the CRP reduces the time and costs associated with transferring data between multiple applications, as occurs in other remediation systems. It also makes gathering, mapping, extracting and understanding both electronic and hard-copy information that much easier.
We’ve used the CRP to process and manage over 500 million files. Can be accessed by a variety of internal and external stakeholders and parties to ensure effective governance. It has been used in issues with a number of major global regulators, including the FCA, CFTC, SCC, and JFSA.Contact Us Case study
An increase in regulatory scrutiny around sales practices and potential mis-selling means there is a greater risk that future income streams will be vulnerable to regulatory investigations and mass claims.MORE +
We have leveraged our expertise in process, technology, and industry knowledge to devise a comprehensive solution to help companies address mis-selling of different products and services. Our mis-selling solution allows companies to conduct extensive root-cause analyses of potential misconduct in selling practices, and our platform gives us the ability to target specific sales, in near real-time, for potential redress. In doing so, our clients can build a robust feedback mechanism in which lessons learned are absorbed into their sales processes.Contact Us Case study
