AI legal platform Luminance forms Advisory Board with senior lawyers

The Advisory Board formed by Luminance brings together four specialists with insider knowledge of the legal industry.

Luminance, the artificial intelligence (AI) platform for the legal profession, continues to strengthen ties in the industry through the creation of an Advisory Board comprised of leading lawyers from around the globe.

The board, which was formed to accelerate the adoption of AI technology that Luminance states is “essential for law firms and in-house teams to stay competitive in response to the pressures on the industry”, will advocate for the positive impact AI technology has on the legal profession and provide expert advice and guidance on the adoption of AI in law firms and organisations.

The panel is comprised of senior lawyers from a range of specialisms, jurisdictions and organisations, complementing the work of the Security Advisory Board, led by Lord Evans of Weardale KCB, former Director General of MI5:

• Rosemary Martin, Group General Counsel of Vodafone;

• Steve Cooke, Senior Partner of Slaughter and May;

• Manuela Cavallo, Founding Partner of Portolano Cavallo; and

• Vagn Thorup, Former Chairman of the International Bar Association’s (IBA) Technology Committee.

Luminance, which launched in September 2016, is headed by CEO Emily Foges and has over 165 customers in more than 40 countries across six continents.

The company was recently named a ‘Technology Pioneer’ by the World Economic Forum and received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
