James B. Jumper, a partner with Pepper Hamilton, and Paris S. Waterman, an associate with Pepper Hamilton, were quoted in the January 28, 2019 Artificial Lawyer article, "Legal AI Co. Luminance Bags U.S. Law Firm Pepper Hamilton as Expansion Drive Continues." The article discusses Pepper's decision to deploy legal artificial intelligence (AI) company Luminance's document review capabilities for M&A due diligence after a pilot that compared the AI technology with a manual review.
James Jumper, partner at Pepper Hamilton, said: ‘When comparing Luminance to our previous manual processes, its benefits were very clear from the start. The technology saved the team significant time.’
Paris Waterman, associate attorney at the firm, added: ‘Luminance’s ability to identify document types right out of the box, with no training, made for a far more efficient review process for the whole team. Luminance is exceptionally user-friendly. We look forward to seeing the added support Luminance can provide in future M&A deals, and we anticipate that the technology will help us deliver on our firm’s key values of commitment to the client’s cause and adding value with efficiency.’
