ZentLaw has a 20 year track record serving the world’s largest brands through our innovative, efficient and cost-effective Solutions that have steadily driven the legal industry forward into new frontiers.
Legal industry innovator, thought leader and pioneer, Monica Zent, founded ZentLaw in 2002 as an alternative to the conventional law firm model, breaking the law firm mold at the time. Based in the Silicon Valley area of California, ZentLaw reflected the innovative spirit of its region, disrupting the legal market as we knew it at the time with a revolutionary proposition for clients: an alternative legal services provider model (ALSP) delivering high quality Solutions at a value and delivered via a client-centric approach. Today, ZentLaw is one of the leading ALSPs in the country serving the world’s most well-known brands.
Efficiency and innovation is in our DNA at ZentLaw and that of our Leadership. Our tagline says it all: “On Demand, On Budget.” When ZentLaw created this tagline in 2002, the concept of associating On Demand or On Budget with any legal services provider was unheard of at the time.
Through our use of technology, including tools created by ZentLaw Labs, we leverage information, knowledge and work product quickly and efficiently to deliver high quality legal services to our clients at maximum value. At ZentLaw, we constantly innovate on process and practice, building methodologies and technology that will serve our clients today and in the years to come.
We offer quality legal counsel under cost-effective Solutions that make sense for clients in this brave new world of how law can and should be practiced. ZentLaw provides the right resources when you need them at a cost that makes budget sense. Our pragmatic, tech-centric, process-driven approach to law is refreshing for our clients and makes law fun for the people on our team.
ZentLaw’s Solutions include: Subscription Plans for work that must be performed on a strict budget, Secondments for dedicated, on-site or remote resources, Flex Plans for variable workflows, Legal Operations Consulting, often delivered in collaboration with our trusted partners such as UpLevel Ops, to drive internal efficiencies and refine contracting processes, and LegalTech development through ZentLaw Labs.
ZentLaw serves a client base consisting of Fortune-listed, publicly-traded companies as well as venture-backed pre-unicorn status companies, and institutions and municipalities. Our clients do business in a variety of sectors from technology and energy to banking and apparel. Our institutional stability, value pricing plans, and proven track record make ZentLaw the go-to solution for legal work for leading brands. We have helped the most successful companies grow and shape their business and legal practices in ways that are truly ground-breaking. ZentLaw has advised General Counsels at many of the world’s top companies on best practices for their legal departments and Ms. Zent is often considered a thought leader by GCs on best practices for legal teams.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our industry runs deep, spanning nearly two decades of service and support in this area. ZentLaw is proud to be a certified WMBE and woman owned business.
Under the leadership of visionary, Monica Zent, the lasting legacy ZentLaw leaves in the legal market is setting the mold for ALSPs everywhere and creating a model that has been replicated many times over throughout the industry.
Additionally, since its inception, every year ZentLaw commits its funds, resources and talent to serving the needs of the community through sponsorship and pro bono work in a variety of settings for organizations such as Breakthrough Silicon Valley, the Inner City Law Clinic, California Lawyers for the Arts and Rotary International.
Covered in the ABA Journal, the Los Angeles Daily Journal, California Lawyer Magazine, Inside Counsel magazine and Corporate Counsel magazine, LegalBusinessWorld and more, ZentLaw is a brand and name that is synonymous with the best in legal services delivered at a value and with a smile. ZentLaw will continue to grow, leaving its legacy for the legal industry in a way that no other organization has ever done.

Avvoka is a document automation, negotiation and analytics tool designed to help law firms, in-house legal teams and businesses (of all sizes) draft documents, negotiate them, and leverage data insights from that process to draft better documents, and get to “yes” faster.
Unlike legacy tools, with Avvoka you can rapidly build automated versions of your most complex documents using our intuitive automation builder. This means no more tricky coding within Word documents. Our customers reach agreement fast by collaborating on documents with colleagues in real-time and negotiating with counterparties via the Avvoka online platform.

Key use cases:
- First-draft automation –

- Safe, self-service contracting –
- Drive document creation within business teams by allowing legal teams to build contract playbooks, fallbacks and approval workflows layered into automated templates

- External negotiation –

- Use extensive rights-management to restrict the ability of users to mark-up key terms to safeguard negotiating guidelines
- Document data analysis –
