Italian Law Firm LP Avvocati Turns to Luminance for AI-Powered eDiscovery

28 June 2022 |

28 June 2022 | LP Avvocati Studio Legale (‘LP Avvocati’) has announced its adoption of Luminance’s AI-powered eDiscovery tool to enhance a range of matters across the Italian firm, including investigations, litigation and compliance reviews.

LP Avvocati provides specialised legal services to clients across its Rome and Milan offices, with particular expertise in corporate and criminal law. Faced with increasing volumes of documents to review during the litigation process, LP Avvocati sought a next-generation technology that would help its team to expedite the review of evidentiary material prior to trial. The firm turned to Luminance, whose AI-driven Early Case Assessment and Technology Assisted Review functionalities cut through high-volume datasets to highlight key areas of interest and cull irrelevant information in record time during investigations involving challenging legal matters. Luminance has subsequently augmented the work conducted by the firm’s lawyers, enhancing their analysis to ensure they achieve a deeper understanding of all information relevant to the legal proceedings.

Critical to LP Avvocati’s adoption of Luminance is the technology’s unique combination of supervised and unsupervised machine learning, which allows the AI to form an understanding of any volume or type of documentation, working out-of-the-box to highlight key information across unstructured datasets. With Luminance, the firm can rapidly analyse a wide range of material relevant to their investigation, including witness statements, written pleas, court transcripts and judicial orders. Having previously relied on manual methods of document review, LP Avvocati is now able to conduct investigations within much shorter timeframes, allowing the team to better focus their time on building an effective defence strategy and deliver high-quality legal counsel to their clients.

Roberto Fiore, Founding Member of LP Avvocati, commented: “Luminance eliminates the hours we previously spent on manual document review, cutting through vast amounts of data to help our team get to the heart of any investigation on day one. With Luminance, we can rapidly identify the key information that will serve as evidence, placing us on the front foot when it comes to preparing for a defence case in court.”

Orianne Auger, Head of Discovery at Luminance, adds: “I am delighted that LP Avvocati has adopted Luminance’s next-generation technology. Luminance is essential to modern-day court preparation and is helping legal teams around the globe get to the heart of their case in record time. With Luminance unearthing key findings in the early stages of investigations, legal teams can spend their time on the higher-value work of preparing their defence argument or for settlement negotiations.”

Luminance is trusted by over 400 organisations in 60 countries worldwide, including all of the Big Four consultancy firms, a quarter of the world’s largest law firms and in-house teams from leading organisations such as UK supermarket, Tesco, and global confectionary company, Ferrero.
