NexaConnex Partners with Luminance to Deliver AI-Powered Legal Service Offering
Luminance, the global leader for legal process automation, today announced that it has partnered with alternative service legal provider, Nexa, to embed Luminance’s next-generation AI into the NexaConnex legal service offering.
NexaConnex is a brand of Nexa Law, one of the fastest growing legal services provider in the UK, and supports mid-market law firms across a range of sectors including Banking, Commercial and Corporate and Property law to help solve their most pressing people and capacity challenges. Now, by embedding Luminance’s next-generation AI into their offering, NexaConnex’s clients will be able to drive much-needed efficiencies into their day-to-day work and dedicate more time to high-value client activities.
After being approached by a law firm client to assist with a complex and urgent disclosure exercise, NexaConnex turned to Luminance to support the activity. In just 48 hours, NexaConnex’s client law firm was up and running on the Luminance platform, with litigation lawyers from NexaConnex and the law firm using the AI’s powerful search and filtering capabilities to instantly cull irrelevant documents and rapidly get to the heart of the matter. After reducing their client’s review time by “hundreds of hours” on this single project, NexaConnex chose to make Luminance part of its offering going forwards.
Nigel Clark, CEO of Nexa Law, noted: “AI and other technology solutions are a huge opportunity for law firms. The greatest current challenge for law firms is to do more for less. AI enables lawyers to focus their efforts on doing what they do best and leaving software to pick up the slack on repetitive tasks such as document review and contract management. NexaConnex will always have people at its core but we’re excited to be part of the evolution of the legal profession by partnering with Luminance to enhance our offering to mid-market law firms.”
Eleanor Lightbody, CEO of Luminance, added: “AI is no longer a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘must have’. Clients increasingly expect their advisors to have innovative solutions in place to power their legal service delivery. By adopting Luminance, NexaConnex will have the competitive edge in a market where AI-powered legal service delivery is quickly becoming the standard.”
