Earlier today, I reported on a new product launched by LinkSquares, the Boston-based provider of AI-powered contract management and analysis technology for corporate legal departments. Called LinkSquares Finalize, it extends the company’s technology into the pre-signature stage, helping its customers create and approve contracts more quickly and efficiently.

This news comes just three months after LinkSquares raised $14.5 million in a Series A financing round, bringing its total financing to $21 million. And it comes after a year in which the company saw 300% year-over-year growth.

On this episode of LawNext, recorded yesterday afternoon, I speak with Vishal Sunak, who cofounded LinkSquares in 2015 and has been its CEO ever since. He and cofounder Chris Combs started the company after participating in the acquisition of the company where they formerly worked, Backupify, and witnessing the need for a better way to manage enterprise contracts.

Hear how they bootstrapped and built the company from scratch, why Sunak sees contract management as so vital to corporations, and where he sees the industry heading.
