“Taft is known as a firm that utilizes the best of advanced technological resources, making Kira a natural addition to our stack of cutting-edge tools,” said Ralph A. Caruso, Business Practice Group Chair at Taft. “We support clients through their most demanding and complex business transactions, and identified the need for software that we could trust. After evaluating a number of solutions to help streamline the process, we decided to adopt Kira because of its high level of accuracy, 1,000+ built-in provision models, and ability to generate high-quality reports.”

With reference to Kira specifically, the solution will be used on complex domestic and cross-border merger, acquisition, and divestiture transactions.
