This announcement marks a new era for A&O and the legal industry. Harvey AI is not just another platform, but a game-changer that will enable us to deliver unprecedented value, efficiency and innovation to our clients. We are proud to be the first law firm to partner with Harvey AI. We share their vision of using technology to enhance and transform legal services.
— Wim Dejonghe, a senior partner at Allen & Overy, in a statement concerning the Biglaw firm’s integration of Harvey, an innovative AI platform that uses the same model as ChatGPT, but has been enhanced for legal work. Harvey operates in “multiple languages” and can automate legal work with “unmatched efficiency, quality and intelligence.” According to a press release from A&O, “Whilst the output needs careful review by an A&O lawyer, Harvey can help generate insights, recommendations and predictions based on large volumes of data, enabling lawyers to deliver faster, smarter and more cost-effective solutions to their clients.”
