US firm, Ulmer & Berne, adopts Luminance’s award winning technology

14 February 2020 |

[14 February 2020, New York] - Ulmer & Berne LLP (‘Ulmer’), a Cleveland, Ohio based law firm has adopted Luminance’s powerful machine learning technology to assist lawyers in complex due diligence reviews. Ulmer, which represents some of the largest corporations in the United States, has deployed Luminance to offer its clients more efficient, cost-effective and higher-value legal advice.

Through Luminance’s unique unsupervised machine learning, the platform offers significant time savings from day one, with no set-up, configuration or training required. During the firm’s first live project, one lawyer was able to compare numerous lengthy contracts and immediately locate provisions that would have taken hours to identify without the assistance of Luminance.

Ulmer chose to onboard the Luminance diligence platform after a number of successful reviews using the technology by a number of attorneys at the firm. Luminance’s powerful core technology, intuitive user interface and seamless workflow tools are not available in other applications. Luminance allows Ulmer to be the best possible advisors to their clients across a range of practice areas, with Jeffrey R. Schaefer, Partner at Ulmer & Berne, commenting: “I can see Luminance helping us in a number of areas at the firm, not just due diligence.”

Jason Brennan, President of the Americas at Luminance, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Ulmer & Berne to the fast-growing list of US firms adopting Luminance. The firm saw real benefits of the technology on its first live review and we look forward to demonstrating the value Luminance can deliver, not only for due diligence, but across multiple practice areas, as the firm continues to expand.”
