Luminance is the artificial intelligence platform for the legal profession, using the latest developments in machine learning technology to help lawyers who are facing an exponential increase in volumes of corporate documentation to review. The organisation was founded in September 2015 by machine learning experts from the University of Cambridge, applying years of research and development into new applications for AI techniques. Leading mathematicians, computer vision experts and data security professionals worked with lawyers to develop the self-learning algorithm in order to read and understand documents and deliver faster, more accurate review. Subsequently, Luminance was further refined in collaboration with some of the best lawyers in the world, to build technology that seamlessly augments the work of a legal team.
Since launching the product just over 18 months ago, Luminance has been adopted by over 75 law firms across the globe. Initially focused on supporting contract review for M&A due diligence, Luminance has been used in hundreds of transactions, with customers spanning 23 countries across 5 continents. The company is based in London, with new offices in Chicago and Singapore to support a fast-growing international client base of top tier law firms.
