Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu (NO&T), a leading law firm and the foremost provider of international and commercial legal services in Japan, is using Kira as part of an on-going commitment to deliver innovative and results-oriented legal solutions to clients who seek M&A counsel.
With market leading corporate/M&A expertise, NO&T provides strategic and commercial legal advice to its clients on all aspects of corporate law matters. This includes helping clients manage their day-to-day business operations to representing them in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, commercial contract negotiations and various other types of corporate transactions.
“The introduction of Kira is part of a strategic move to provide world-class services to our clients by expanding the use of the latest technologies,” remarked Fumihide Sugimoto, the firm’s Managing Partner. “We have already introduced a Japanese AI product, MNTSQ, for the review of Japanese documents, and we strongly believe that the further introduction of Kira will greatly improve the efficiency of our legal services, especially our legal due diligence services.”
“By using Kira, we are actually experiencing great improvement in our English document reviews,” said Yasuhiro Kasahara, M&A/Corporate partner who led the software trial process and is using Kira frequently in his practice. “Now our Japanese document review work is assisted by MNTSQ and our English document review work is assisted by Kira. We are confident that we will be able to provide more efficient and better service using these latest AI-based legal technologies.”
The firm has over 500 lawyers, including around 40 experienced attorneys from various jurisdictions outside of Japan, who work together in customized teams to provide clients with the expertise and experience specifically required for each client matter.
