CMS has invested in machine learning and data visualisation technology Brainspace to “accelerate data analysis and review in litigation, arbitration and investigations”.
The technology will be rolled out across the entire firm through its litigation technology business, CMS Evidence.
CMS claims that the implementation of this technology will result in time saving and cost savings for clients, and a “significant improvement in the speed in understanding the relevant data, and identifying the issues and relationships it reveals”.
CMS head of commercial, regulatory and disputes said: “CMS is embracing new technologies and investing in solutions that enable us to serve our clients’ needs as efficiently as possible.
“Investing in this technology gives us, and our clients, far greater control over a process which is typically very time consuming.”
CMS is significantly investing in technology ahead of its tripartite merger with Nabarro and Olswang later this year.
The Lawyer understands significant advancements to the tech of CMS Cameron McKenna in the UK were central to some of its negotiations with Olswang and Nabarro over its merger deal.
Last month CMS’s German arm, CMS Hasche Sigle, signed a deal with technology provider Kira to apply its software to transactional advice.
The software is understood to be in the testing phase, with plans to roll it out later this year.
CMS partner Stefan Sieling is responsible for the firm’s knowledge management and Kira roll-out.
