Over seven years as a litigator of complex commercial and antitrust cases, Dan Hauck had become frustrated over how difficult it was for legal teams to collaborate around matters. In 2014, he left his law firm, Bryan Cave, to start ThreadKM, a matter-centric legal collaboration platform. As the product evolved, it developed integrations with the document management platform NetDocuments, and in 2017, NetDocuments acquired ThreadKM, resulting in the NetDocuments product ndThread. 

Now, Hauck is chief product officer at NetDocuments, where he is responsible for the company’s strategic vision, partnerships, products, user interface and roadmap. Over the past year, he was instrumental in the company’s launch of PatternBuilder, a product for building applications and automating legal documents, and its acquisition of Worldox. 

Earlier this month, at the NetDocuments three-day Inspire 2022 conference for customers and partners, LawNext host Bob Ambrogi sat down with Hauck for a live conversation about the company’s product strategy and roadmap. Spoiler alert: His vision for the platform spans automating and linking every stage of the legal document workflow.
