The Theft of Intellectual Property Commission states that intellectual property theft resulting from the lack of access permission control costs US companies roughly $600bn a year.

Data fragmentation
Data fragmentation

Law companies process tons of legal documents, from property claims to insurance, title deeds to court records. They need a unified, self-sustaining, and searchable database.

Arbitration cases
Arbitration cases

In the US, FINRA’s average time to closure for an arbitration case is 14 months, resulting in a 4,000-case backlog and an average 16-month wait for a regular arbitration hearing.

CoC issues
CoC issues

Since jurisdictions around the world require a proper, provable chain of custody. Documents that don’t comply with these requirements might become inadmissible in court.

Third parties
Third parties

Current notarization processes are drowning in bureaucracy and not only time-consuming but also costly. In the US alone, there are more than 4.4mln notaries (as per The National Notary magazine).

Blockchain solutions for legal from Aetsoft

Automated processes

Blockchain smart contracts can automate multiple tasks and procedures regarding legal documents, from signing and executing to terms verification.

Cost-effective arbitration

Smart contracts can accelerate arbitration resolution by instantly reopening cases once certain conditions are met as well as select proper arbiters.

Permanent ledger

With blockchain, governments can provide public access to particular info under users’ FOIA requests without risking sensitive data becoming corrupted in any way.

Notary-free

Digital co-signing verified by advanced cryptography reduces or eliminates the need for third-party verification and accelerates transactions.

Evidence database

Blockchain provides an immutable record of evidence items, with provable CoC and automated updates via smart contracts.

Secured property

Deeds and proofs of ownership can be assigned a unique ID, stored on a forgery-proof blockchain, making fraud next to impossible.

Blockchain applications in legal

Property protection

Use case 1. Intellectual property protection

Currently

For insufficient control over intellectual property, it becomes hard to manage access to it adequately; violations and thefts are part of the issue.

With blockchain

Only selected people with unique, cryptography-immutable property IDs will have access to each property asset, making anonymous entries next to impossible.

Unified database

Use case 2. Unified database

Currently

Dispersed nature of legal records across databases and silos hardens their collection for due diligence, chain of custody, and other purposes, in some cases, making it even unattainable.

With blockchain

A single, overarching legal database allows for quick collection and processing of documents and fast retrieval of the required data items at any moment.

Quick notarization

Use case 3. Quick notarization

Currently

Notarization of leases and rental agreements remains a costly and time-consuming procedure, with general notaries taking their part.

With blockchain

Smart contracts exclude public notaries from notarization processes, making those fast, person-independent, and tamper-proof.
