NautaDutilh will intensify its cooperation with AI development company Fledger in the field of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI). The collaboration was launched in mid-2023 to enable the controlled deployment of this innovative technology for developing and testing legal applications.

"By combining our knowledge and Fledger's expertise, we can develop customised AI functionality that meets our firm's requirements for information security, privacy, scalability and AI governance", says Joris Willems, partner and head of NautaDutilh's Technology group.

In December 2023, the European Union agreed on landmark legislation to regulate AI. "We advise clients on what this EU AI Act means for their business. We also support them in contract negotiations with suppliers of AI services and help AI startups obtain venture capital. In this, we want to lead the way in the legal sector, also by contributing to the development and use of legal AI applications. Here, responsible management of risks in areas such as privacy, ethics, safety and quality is paramount", states Joris Willems, who is also chairman of the Dutch Association for AI and Robot Law (NVAIR).

Own AI environment
ICT director Sijmen Vrolijk adds: "Through our own platform, we want to experiment with AI and develop relevant functionality for our colleagues. This is an ongoing process aimed at increasing efficiency, quality and joint work enjoyment. Here, the collaboration with Fledger has proved very fruitful. We have developed our own chatbot called Ariel, and are now building our own AI knowledge management systems. We have also deployed a document chatbot and a translation tool. We are currently working on specific solutions for different practice groups. Our lawyers and business support professionals are responding positively and increasingly make suggestions on how we could integrate AI into our work."
