Kilian’s remarkable journey as the Head of the Cybersecurity Department at CertX AG – First Swiss accredited certification and inspection body for AI, cyber security and functional safety – make him a perfect cyber security watchdog.
As an auditor and assessor, he has deepened his expertise in state-of-the-art IT/OT security practices and now plays a pivotal role in training and certification services at the first Swiss certification body for functional safety and cybersecurity. With extensive experience as a cybersecurity consultant across diverse industries, including automotive, railway, energy, and healthcare companies, Kilian brings hands on experience implementing cyber security management systems, assessing related processes, and spotting weaknesses and deviations from best security practices.
In addition to Kilian, we are also privileged to have two other exceptional Advisory Board members.
Jean Hennebert, our Research & AI Advisor, and Brian Firlit, our Growth & Strategy Advisor, have been instrumental in shaping Neur.on’s progress, innovation and industry focus.
As Neur.on marks its first anniversary, we take pride in affirming that cybersecurity has been integral to our software development, DevOps environment, and process design since day one.
With the addition of Kilian to our team, we now aim to benefit from the relentless scrutiny of a seasoned expert, challenging every facet of our security framework.
This recognition is a testament to the remarkable dedication and collaborative spirit of the entire Neur.on Team.
In the realm of “digital shaping,” success is a result of collective effort. This rings especially true in the legal industry, where the principles of Trust, Accuracy, and Ethics take precedence over fleeting notions of Profitability, Entrepreneurial Risk, … and sometimes Innovation.
Here at Neur.on, we firmly believe that genuine digitalization succeeds when:
At Neur.on, our conviction is clear: every opportunity to reshape an industry should be seized to bring about positive change – digitalization as a #forceforgood. We therefore pledge to utilize our knowledge and unwavering commitment to enhance quality standards in the legal translation domain, enhance global access to justice, and cultivate better working conditions for legal translators.
Orane’s academic voyage led her to the University of Geneva, where she pursued studies in translation. Fast forward to today, and she’s making waves as the Operations Manager at a dynamic LegalTech startup specializing in Neural Machine Translation.
Amid the rapid advancements in technology, Orane emphasizes that Neur.on’s objective isn’t to replace humans with machines, but to empower them with tailor-made tools. She rightly points out, “There’s reason to rejoice: the machine is a tool that makes our work more interesting.”
Reflecting on her entry into the professional sphere, Orane shares her journey from a translation internship in legal translation to her current leadership role.
Her advice to students: embrace the fusion of technology and linguistics, and adapt to the evolving landscape of the profession. Whether one gravitates toward the intricacies of language subtleties or the human-linguistics connection, there’s a niche waiting to be mastered.
I invite you to discover more about Orane’s trajectory by reading the full article here.
As a LegalTech company catering to law firms, Big4s, banks, insurance companies, and public authorities, data security is deeply ingrained in our values.
Right from the outset, we have made the conscious choice to uphold the highest standards of Information and AI Security (ISO 27001 and CertAI standards), an early commitment that may seem unconventional for a startup.
However, we firmly believe that cybersecurity should not be an afterthought once revenues start pouring in.
In light of this pledge, we have decided to invest all the necessary time and resources to walk the talk.
With that in mind, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Trust Valley and 40+ partners of the Trust4SMEs program for their support on our journey, including, among others, Canton de Vaud, République et Canton de Genève, EPFL Innovation Park, and to our coach Laura Tocmacov of impactIA Foundation.
We were honored to have representatives from NEUR.ON, iCoSys, and CertX, along with other esteemed AI specialists from around the world, participate in The First University of St. Gallen Grand Challenge: The EU AI ACT. During this event, we focused on evaluating the compliance of 8 cutting-edge AI solutions, spanning robotics, process management, and NLP-analytics, with the current draft of the AI ACT. Our diverse team included experts in machine learning, legal, and ISO 27001 certification fields.

We were pleased to find that the majority of the assessed companies demonstrated a high to very high degree of risk awareness and had implemented a security-by-design approach in their solutions.
If only these AI-system providers were representative of the whole industry, most AI scaremongering prophecies could be dismissed in a blink…
Let’s work towards fostering an AI industry that embraces compliance, responsible development, and a culture of trust.
Thank you Thomas Burri for organizing such a spectacular challenge, thank you SRF – Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen for reporting on the event, and thank you to all our team members: Jean Hennebert, Orane Laeri, Yael Iseli, Arman Iranfar, Marco Repetto Ph. D.
Delivering elevator pitches is never a startuper’s favourite sport – but for legal techies, whose products are always considered technical and – let’s be honest – a little boring, the exercise can be particularly unrewarding.
Allowing us to pitch in front of a savvy and tech-friendly audience of legal professionals and potential clients has therefore been a much appreciated privilege.
And of course, winning first prize thanks to the audience vote is particularly gratifying!
Long live the Weblaw LegalTech forum!
Ce soir, les avocat.e.s genevois.e.s s’échangent sur la LegalTech avec les artisans de leurs outils préférés, EyeTeK et Neur.on.
Parmi les « thèses disruptives » présentées ce soir, une affirmation particulièrement périlleuse et alléchante :
L’IA ne changera RIEN au métier d’avocat.e
Pourquoi ? Parce que l’IA excelle avant tout dans les tâches :
En d’autres termes, des tâches que les avocat.e.s essaient depuis toujours de déléguer à leurs stagiaires, assistant.e.s ou autres victimes choisies.
Par ailleurs, les larges modèles de langues sont conçus pour dire toujours ce qui est le plus PROBABLE dans un contexte donné, alors que le cœur du métier d’avocat.e, c’est l’INATTENDU ;
Alors que la force de l’IA, c’est de synthétiser ou de reformuler ce qu’elle a lu, un.e avocat.e, se doit de savoir lire ENTRE les lignes.
En revanche, en raison de l’illusion de la perfection que peuvent créer les larges modèles de langues, le prestige incontesté de la profession pourrait se trouver écorné : les avocat.e.s risquent de comprendre bientôt ce que ressentent les médecins auxquels les patients exposent le diagnostic qu’ils ont établi sur Google… ou ce que ressent une femme au volant à laquelle son mari explique comment conduire.
Enfin, on notera que l’IA est notoirement incapable de développer des considérations éthiques. Or, le nom même du domaine de compétence des avocat.e.s, LE DROIT, leur rappelle tous les jours que leur travail est ancré dans une déontologie rigoureuse et une fidèle allégeance à la notion de JUSTICE.
Longue vie à cette noble profession.
The Lawyers’s Congress 2023 marks the 125th birthday of the Swiss Bar Association. A great reason to celebrate!
Yet at the same time, Swiss lawyers have never felt this unsettled about the future of their profession.
Neur.on’s team is looking forward to contributing to the discussions, showing that well-conceived technology can be a force for good, not only increasing efficiency (which can be a daunting prospect), but also – and mostly – profitability and quality of life.
La sécurité des données est un enjeu majeur pour les avocat.e.s et constitue la pierre angulaire des services proposés par Neur.on. Le rôle crucial joué par l’exploitation des données industrielles est débattu aujourd’hui lors de la conférence « Données industrielles : une richesse à exploiter », organisée par la CCIF – Chambre de commerce et d’industrie du canton de Fribourg à la @HEIA-FR (College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg).
Notre CTO, Yann-Ivain Beffa, contribue au débat avec sa présentation “IA appliquée au texte: Faut-il créer une raffinerie de données ?”.
La Start-up scène à Fribourg, c’est tout d’abord des entrepreneur.e.s passionné.e.s, c’est aussi des compétences pointues en IA.
Un privilège d’avoir pu participer au 1er Start-Up Lunch présenté par Fri Up, l’organisation officielle de soutien à la création d’entreprise du canton de Fribourg, et de bénéficier du feed-back bienveillant d’un public d’experts et de potentiels clients.
The legal profession faces a multitude of paradigm shifts, brought about by disruptive new technology, an evolving society, and an ever more competitive job market.
Legal service providers need to embrace this change to survive, and Neur.on stands ready to help with this adaptation through its AI-driven translation platform, built from the ground up to meet the exacting needs of legal and financial professionals.
Our founder, Paula Reichenberg, has been invited to speak at the University of St. Gallen – HSG‘s session on “The future of the legal field” on 4 May in Zurich. Paula has joined experts from across #SwissLaw to give her perspective on the role of LegalTech in the law firm of the future.
Neur.on was highlighted in the report and interview of the TV channel La Télé (regional television channel covering news from the cantons of Vaud and Fribourg) on the Economic Promotion 2022 results. Neur.on was painted as successfully meeting the challenges linked with AI.

Neur.on has joined the Female Founders Initiative Switzerland and features on its map under the “IT/AI Software” category, along with other innovative #SwissStartups led by women across many industries. The #FemaleFounders map showcases the small but growing community of #WomenEntrepreneurs in the Swiss startup ecosystem.
ChatGPT and Dall-e have struck a chord with the public, opening the world’s eyes to the incredible potential of artificial intelligence. The generalist and accessible nature of these solutions have awakened interest across the gamut of industries, including those seen as more conservative, such as the legal profession. Lawyers are eager for secure solutions, tailor-made to suit their needs and processes by experienced specialists.
Enter Neur.on. In two Innosuisse projects, we combine proprietary algorithms and a carefully curated data corpus within Human-in-the-loop processes, to offer ground-breaking specialist AI capability within the #LegalTech space.
Neur.on’s CTO Yann-Ivain Beffa gave a talk on “AI for Legal document Analysis” at the first edition of AI Days, an event organized by the newly created Swiss AI Center for SMEs, an initiative supported by HES-SO Haute école spécialisée and in which iCoSys is a key partner.
Neur.on features in the February newsletter of the Fribourg Network Freiburg, which highlights the digital-first industries driving the #fourthindustrialrevolution. Through this feature, the Fribourg Development Agency FDA has recognized the role of our #aipowered translation platform in expanding the capabilities of LegalTech for legal, tax, and finance professionals.

With the rise of machine translation comes the parallel risk of serious mistakes in legal translations.
More than ever, law firms need to consider translation diligence as part of their quality assurance cycle.
This weekend, lawyers and legal translators from across Europe will discuss and refine Best Practice in Cambridge, UK, at the Words to Deeds Conference #W2D2023.
Neur.on’s CEO, Paula Reichenberg, will be a panelist in the session “Risks and Legal Tech” to share her insights on the specific issues for the LegalTech sector.
Neur.on is delighted that the Lingustic Services / Translation & Anonymization category has been newly created to put its’ AI-driven translation SaaS solution on the map of the Swiss LegalTech Association.
Neur.on uses specialised Natural Language Processing models to offer Swiss legal professionals an end-to-end translation process built from the ground up to meet their needs.
We can’t wait to be joined by further promising start-ups in this category: Andrea Schmidheiny Konic and Bojan Konic
The INSEAD Business school stands for “business as a force for good”. The whole Neur.on team lives by this principle in building ethical AI solutions that foster access to justice and seamless communication in the legal and financial world.
AI builds the very core of Neur.on’s products and strategy. To create reliable and practical solutions, however, we must be fully aware of and embrace AI’s limitations – making up for them with ingenuity, inventiveness and the many other purely human skills that machine will NEVER be able to compete with: warmth, camaraderie, conviviality and empathy.
We would like to extend a warm thank you to all the lawyers and professionals in the LegalTech community, along with their families, that joined us last Saturday to share hot drinks and good laughs.
We wish you and your families a happy holiday season!
Neur.on’s innovative research project carried out in collaboration with iCoSys, the Institute of Complex Systems of the College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, is supported by Innosuisse – and now further supported by the State of Fribourg.
We are happy to announce that the State of Fribourg has granted us additional support to streamline legal translation with AI.
This grant will be used for R&D, new hires, and international expansion.
Neur.on is grateful for this valuable support and is proud to be part of the dynamic Fribourg start-up ecosystem.
Featuring the largest NLP document analysis competence center in Switzerland, a talented pool of multilingual NLP engineers, as well as a renowned faculty of Law, Fribourg offers optimal conditions for a language-centric Legaltech start-up like Neur.on.
