Leading Israeli law firm Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. deploy Luminance’s machine learning technology

27 June 2019 |

Top-tier Israeli firm Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. (APM & Co.) have adopted Luminance for M&A and Hi-Tech Investments due diligence, with plans to deploy the technology across real estate, labour law and infrastructure practices. They are among the first in the region to adopt the technology to aid in their document review process.

The nature of APM & Co.’s cross-border transactional work meant that Luminance’s unique language-agnostic capabilities were essential in their decision-making process. Luminance’s machine learning algorithms understand language based on pure mathematics, meaning lawyers can begin their review with no system training or configuration dependent on their data set. Luminance offers APM & Co. a tool flexible enough to deal with large volumes of documents in multiple languages.

“As a leading law firm we encounter cutting-edge technologies daily, and it is clear that the legal profession is facing major transformations.” comments Omar Bekerman, Partner at APM & Co., “By being early adopters we have a key advantage in a crowded market here in Israel and this builds on our reputation as innovators in the legal field. Through using the most advanced technology, our lawyers can spend more time on advice to complex legal and business issues and come up with creative solutions, or in other words – a more distinct and robust value proposition.”

Emily Foges, CEO of Luminance, adds “We are thrilled to be working with Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. as part of our expansion into the Middle East. Deploying Luminance will allow APM & Co. to develop their own unique learning within the platform, tailored to their firm, and experience the exponential benefits of our artificial intelligence technology.”

Luminance’s ground-breaking machine learning and pattern recognition techniques were developed at the University of Cambridge. The platform is able to read and understand documents the way humans do, at speeds which humans could never achieve, and has become the market-leader in legal AI in just under three years. Luminance provides unmatched insight into a document set as the unique technology learns from the interaction between the lawyer and the documents.

Luminance’s 150+ customers include 15 of The Global Top 100 law firms and offices of each of the ‘Big Four’ accountancy firms. The company recently won the award for Innovative Enterprise Product of the Year’ at the National Technology Awards 2019.
