cognia logokira logoLONDON – Cognia Law has joined Kira Systems’ growing network of partners as a Kira Certified Service Provider. With this partnership, Cognia Law will be able to combine Kira’s expertise in machine learning technology with its specialist knowledge of contract review to deliver faster and even more accurate contract review services to its clients. Corporations will now be able to take advantage of technology enabled contract review, even when it does not make sense to be direct users of the technology themselves.

This partnership allows us to leverage Kira’s advanced machine learning technology to fast-track contract analysis on our contract review projects. By using AI to help with accurate and cost efficient processing of large volumes of documents and contracts, Kira supports us in being able to deliver on our people focus and employ a higher caliber of skilled individuals, and in turn, to deliver more value added legal services to our clients.”

said Janet Taylor-Hall, CEO of Cognia Law.

Building on a relationship starting more than 3 years ago, Cognia Law has over the last 3 months been working closely with Kira Systems to understand how Cognia Law’s services to its clients — including CMS migration, post‑merger integration and regulatory review — can be further enhanced using machine learning technology. Continued collaboration between the businesses reinforces Cognia Law’s strategy of continuous improvement in the delivery of legal services and gives rise to new technology enabled services.

The users of Kira at Cognia Law have found that Kira substantially speeds up their contract review as it is capable of identifying concepts even if they vary significantly or don’t contain keywords, as the model takes into account thousands of variables. Cognia Law users also find the technology easy to use, with built in workflow and reporting capabilities, which align with Cognia Law’s project management methodology.

We are really excited to expand our network of Kira Certified Service Providers” said Noah Waisberg, CEO of Kira Systems. “We believe that in many cases the needs of corporates are best served directly through a service provider, but that shouldn’t mean they don’t get to have the benefits of AI too.”
