Pérez-Llorca was the first law firm to integrate this Swedish tool. From Iberian Lawyer, we advance the reasons for the decision to integrate this tool in the firm, from the hand of the head of knowledge management, Marisa Delgado. Although other law firms have opted for other tools, such as the American Harvey.

“At Leya, we conceive AI not as a mere addition to the lawyers’ workflow, but as a partner that will work on their behalf in a reliable way. Our AI system takes care of simple knowledge work, freeing lawyers to focus on what they do best; high-level strategy, creativity and problem solving,” they have shared from

Specifically, Leya directly accesses files and documents where they are located. It then combines them with legal data from more than 15 jurisdictions, always providing sentence-level citations and references to the underlying material in its results; both in Due Diligence reviews, conversations and when editing or reviewing documents directly.
