Thompson Hine LLP, a full-service business law firm with approximately 400 lawyers in eight offices, today announced it has adopted Kira as part of its ongoing commitment to innovation.
“Using Kira helps make our legal service delivery even more predictable, efficient, and transparent. It is important to identify tools we can incorporate into our platform and fine-tune the right combination of people, process, and technology. Kira suited our needs,” said Bill Garcia, Thompson Hine’s Chief Practice Innovation Officer.
Thompson Hine wanted a tool to simplify interaction with electronically stored data, one that could rapidly identify relevant document provisions, analyze and categorize attributes of the documents, and compare multiple documents against a base form.
The firm undertook a multi-month pilot involving lawyers from a variety of practice groups who used Kira in a variety of practice settings. In the future, the firm will use its experience with the tool to look for novel use cases.
“Thompson Hine is committed to adopting advanced tools to be at the cutting edge of legal practice,” said Noah Waisberg, CEO & Co-Founder. “Their focus on innovating for clients is well known, and we are thrilled they chose to work with Kira.”
