Lineal Delivers LPAi – Trained Priv Finder Model into Its Review Environments

Lineal Introduces LPAi – An Ai Based Privilege Doc Identifier

Dallas, USA, February 5, 2021 – Lineal, an Ai enabled legal technology services company has developed an Ai trained privilege identification model that scores all documents inside its review environment.  Trained on tens of millions of documents and based on NexLP Ai Model capabilities, LPAi scores every document on likelihood of being privileged and displays that score for the end user.

Lineal clients can immediately understand the prevalence of potentially privileged documents within a given population, as well as the likelihood on a sliding scale of whether those documents are truly covered under the rules of legal privilege.  LPAi’s model utilizes the same logic that a lawyer does to identify privilege documents by first identifying lawyers, analyzing whether they are adverse, aligned, or in-house, then finally filtering in legal and work product issues. The tool also allows for keyword inputs to round out the offering.  As the technology utilizes NexLP’s entity extraction engine, all lawyers are defined as entities removing the need to search for multiple email address, chat handles, etc.

“LPAi dramatically improves privilege review by applying a model that “thinks” like a lawyer would about the rules of privilege.  Understanding which documents are likely privileged, to both prioritize those documents for review and remove the risk of missing privilege, allows us to bring even more efficiency into the review process,” said Lineal CLO Jeanne Somma. “The really exciting thing, because LPAi is already providing the statistical scoring values, is that we can now confidently sample a set of documents scoring below a certain threshold to make larger decisions without having to lay eyes on each one.”
