CMS Brings in Doc Discovery Co. Brainspace

CMS has signed up with machine learning-based document discovery company Brainspace to help with its litigation, arbitration and investigations work. The new software will be utilised under the EEIG group of firms’ CMS Evidence offering.

The system uses machine learning and ‘semantic search’ to visually identify themes and related terms in legal documents and to show the relationships between them.

Penelope Warne, senior partner of CMS UK said of the firm’s latest legal tech deal: ‘As a dynamic firm we embrace technology-led disruption. This … underscores our commitment to being a truly technologically innovative firm.’

Omar Qureshi, head of corporate crime at CMS added: ”This… will help to meet the challenges of having to work with increasing amounts of data on disputes and investigations matters. The net result will be a saving in time and cost for clients.’

Dave Copps, CEO of Brainspace added in a press statement: ‘Brainspace … will bring radical improvement to the productivity and effectiveness of CMS.’

Earlier this year CMS Hasche Sigle in Germany signed up with legal AI company, Kira, to make use of its document analysis system for work such as due diligence.
