Luminance releases package to assist any firms concerned by Kira sale

13 September 2021 |

13 September 2021 - Luminance has today announced details of a support package designed to assist any law firms affected by the recent sale of Kira Systems. The package will allow firms to automatically transfer learning from Kira into Luminance via a specialised importer system.

The announcement follows the recent decision by Kira’s senior management team to leave the law firm market, with the remaining part of the business sold to a legal workflow provider. To support the numerous law firms who, as Kira customers, have expressed concern to Luminance following Kira’s acquisition, Luminance’s Cambridge-based R&D team of machine learning experts have created an importer. This will protect the investment made by law firms using Kira who have built and trained bespoke clauses, and is now available to all Kira users wishing to quickly and efficiently move their work product and associated learning into Luminance.

The importer will allow the clause and document tags created in a Kira instance to be transferred into and reproduced in the Luminance platform, ensuring that no learning is lost and that users can seamlessly continue with their projects. Law firms will also benefit from Luminance’s flexible AI technology which enables lawyers to introduce new concepts with just one click, allowing for bespoke and powerful reviews that generate time-savings of up to 90%.

Eleanor Weaver, CEO of Luminance, comments: “Following approaches by a number of Kira customers, I am pleased to announce details of this rescue package which is available to any law firm wishing to protect the valuable investment they have made in teaching Kira bespoke clauses. Luminance’s importer system, recently developed by machine learning experts from the University of Cambridge, will enable a seamless transition of learning to ensure no work product or learning is lost.”

Luminance is used by 350 organisations globally. This includes top-tier law firms such as Dentons, White & Case and Holland & Knight, all of the ‘Big Four’ professional services firm and retail giants such as Tesco and manufacturers including Ferrero. Luminance was recently ranked as a ‘top-tier’ LawTech vendor by the prestigious legal directory, Chambers and Partners.
