Knowledge sharing during YPOG’s fast growth

By having clauses readily available, YPOG is not only spending less time on low value tasks, they also changed their work attitude with Henchman.

Hariolf Wenzler, CEO at YPOG, describes YPOG as “a law firm of the next generation”. Why? Because they manage their law firm the same way their clients; start-ups, scale-ups and VC’s; manage their companies. With its fast growth to 250 employees in only 5 years, they were facing some challenges. “We want to run YPOG like a business. To support our ambitions we needed legal tech to support us with our processes and efficiency. Henchman is a smart tool that helps us face those challenges as it makes people more productive. It’s the future of work.”

Increased knowledge sharing

The main frustrations for YPOG when drafting in the past were looking for precedents or asking a colleague for precedents. It could take days before someone found it and would get back to you. “Now I immediately find the clause I need, and I think of how I should tweak the clause a bit. It saves me a lot of legwork.“ says Stefan Witte, Partner at YPOG. “Henchman helps us to push knowledge sharing to another level. We find the clauses quicker, we compare them to all previous contracts. This makes the drafting much easier.”

Henchman makes drafting easier. Every day.

From a tedious task to automated labels

Stefan’s favorite Henchman feature is the labels. Previously he did this manually, he went through all his contracts and added a label to each specific clause so that he could find it faster. “Now, I add labels on the go. Either when I search for a clause, or when I’m working on a clause I immediately add a label with Henchman so that I can use it in the future.”

Creating a mindset shift

For Hariolf, the obvious benefit of using Henchman is that it’s making people more efficient in the way they work. But beyond that initial value, there’s more. “I think Henchman creates a different kind of mindset within people and a different work attitude. It’s not just the tool, but what we are doing with Henchman and the direction we are taking, making this the future way of work.”

Beside the obvious advantages of using Henchman, they changed our work attitude and made us a more nible company.
