“Generative AI has untold potential to support our lawyers and transform our client services now and in years to come.” said Kerry Westland, partner and head of the Innovation Group at Addleshaw Goddard. “While researching and exploring over 100 generative AI solutions, CoCounsel stood out as a solution that could be highly effective for a range of use cases, including bulk document analysis. We are already applying CoCounsel in the work we are delivering for our clients, and it is exciting to see the value that this technology can bring. We are looking forward to seeing CoCounsel and Thomson Reuters other AI solutions working together, delivering a powerful suite of tools to our lawyers to enhance our delivery of legal services.”
