Kira integrates machine learning models for a wide range of transaction requirements, across the firm’s practice areas. The software utilizes AI in identifying, analyzing, and extracting clauses and other information from contracts and other types of documents. Moreover, the tool can identify different clauses across a large volume of legal contracts, with utmost precision.

The use of Kira’s advanced machine learning features places the law firm as an innovation leader in the market. “We are excited to work with Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas on this project. They represent our first law firm client in India,” extols Noah Waisberg, Co-founder and CEO, Kira Systems.

This includes productization of their legal knowledge and the introduction of unique skills in the Indian market, besides the adoption of Artificial Intelligence.
