12 December 2019 |

12 December 2019 -The internationally acclaimed law firm, Karatzas & Partners, is paving the way for innovation by being the first law firm in Greece to deploy Luminance’s market-leading platform.

Karatzas & Partners leveraged Luminance after completing a very complex due diligence exercise concerning one of its major clients. Luminance’s core technology, LITE (Legal Inference Transformation Engine), was able to immediately read and understand the dataset at hand, providing the legal team with an immediate and all-encompassing insight into the data room. As well as using Luminance to cross-check the work the advisors had conducted manually, LITE’s unique unsupervised machine learning abilities proved to be invaluable for the team by unearthing critical, hidden risks on day one of the review.

By harnessing the interactions the legal team had with the platform, Luminance not only provided the legal advisors with crucial time-savings, but also ensured that the lawyers were at the forefront of the review.

“Using Luminance, our team was able to gain an unparalleled insight into the data room. This not only saved us a considerable amount of time, but also allowed us to get to the crunch of the deal, with more confidence than ever before”, commented Anna Manda, Partner at Karatzas & Partners.

Luminance’s CEO, Emily Foges, is extremely pleased: “We are thrilled to announce Karatzas & Partners as our latest customer. By accelerating the review process, our technology brings new possibilities for lawyers. There is no ceiling on what Luminance can do. It is fantastic to have such a renowned and innovative firm on board.”
