Document Services API Use Cases

Legal Letters and Statements


Legal firms and teams produce countless legal letters and statements for their clients. Drafting, client review, and signing take time — especially when done manually. The current process requires personally customizing templates with specific client information and then sending for review and signature. It’s repetitive and time consuming, and automation frees up valuable time. Adobe Document Services allows legal firms to:

  • Create standard legal letter templates readily
  • Merge specific client data from any business system in a few clicks
  • Automatically send letters for client review and signature

Relevant APIs


A legal team creates affidavits of identity frequently for clients, often on tight deadlines. The team needs to quickly generate letters based on the client's personal data stored in their system, and automation ensures accuracy, helps the team meet deadlines, and gives the team back valuable time.
