CREA, a multidisciplinary law firm with particular expertise in corporate law and insolvency procedures, were in need of a next-generation technology to increase the capacity and productivity of its 10-strong team, enabling the firm to take on additional work with the same resources. As the only language- and jurisdiction-agnostic tool on the market, Luminance can work in any language from day one, allowing CREA to seamlessly review and analyse both English and Italian documents and easily identify governing laws present within datasets of any size.

Luminance’s AI works out-of-the-box to recognise a range of clauses and highlight key information or areas of possible risk. In doing so, CREA will be able to maintain a competitive advantage in the Italian legal market by surfacing buried deal killers and critical findings at a far earlier stage of review.

Roberto Rovero, Managing Partner at CREA, commented: “With Luminance cutting the time spent on document review and automating legal processes across our firm, we can take on additional work, open up new revenue streams and increase the productivity of our teams. Furthermore, the AI’s ability to instantly highlight any anomalies in the datasets we are dealing with gives both our lawyers and clients greater confidence in the quality of the review and the advice we deliver.”
