Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has partnered with LitiGate, a Tel Aviv-based legal tech venture, to assist them to further develop and test a litigation platform that uses artificial intelligence ('AI') to automate legal research and argument assessment in relation to High Court applications.
Alongside Taylor Wessing and Mishcon de Reya, we have been approached to collaborate with LitiGate for our extensive experience in dispute resolution and continued investment in technology.
Ben Allgrove, Baker McKenzie's Global R&D Partner, comments: "Technology and AI are transforming the delivery of legal services and our partnership with LitiGate is a great opportunity for us to support them develop cutting edge legal tech solutions, and ultimately shape the future of law. This collaboration is a core part of our innovation strategy and we look forward to embarking on this journey with LitiGate."
Founded by experienced litigator Nimrod Aharon and AI expert Guy Uziel, LitiGate aims to revolutionise the conduct of litigation by delivering contentious legal services faster, at less cost and with improved accuracy.
The platform uses state of the art machine learning algorithms to autonomously review arguments, suggest counter arguments and fall-backs, and recommend preferred procedural steps.
As part of the partnership, we will be providing our expertise and resources to assist LitiGate with further development and testing of the platform.
Nimrod Aharon, CEO of LitiGate, says: "These are exciting times of revolutionising the legal research as we know it. Our partners do not settle for 'our lawyers are smarter than the ones across the street', they take proactive actions to reduce fees and find innovative ways to deliver top-tier legal services to their clients. Together with our partners, we have formed a unique community of highly ranked global law firms, investing their expertise and resources to provide the first AI arguments analysis platform."
