Actionstep, the cloud practice management platform for law firms, announces that it has acquired the Perth-based legal software business, FilePro. The transaction brings together two innovative companies serving the needs of modern, mid-sized law firms.
The combined businesses will provide existing FilePro customers with access to extended cloud technologies and drive additional product development investment.
This announcement comes on the heels of Actionstep's acquisition of the legal practice software company, LawMaster, in September 2022 and bolsters Actionstep's market leading position as the benchmark legal technology platform for mid-market law firms in Australia and New Zealand.
Actionstep has continued its growth globally with its highly adaptable, comprehensive legal practice management platform. Actionstep has achieved significant scale and continues to invest in the development of its technology for the growing mid-market law firm segment.
The addition of FilePro to Actionstep means the company services almost 28,000 subscribers globally.
FirePro’s customer base of nearly 4,000 legal professionals is made up of many prestigious Australian firms. FilePro is a proven and robust legal practice management solution. Prior to Actionstep’s acquisition, FilePro had been exploring cloud solutions. This transaction will accelerate the availability of cloud technology for FilePro customers.
David Hepburn, Global President of Actionstep commented, “We are excited to join forces with FilePro, who have an impressive history in the Australian legaltech space. Together we offer customers and team members an opportunity to be part of a global business and an exciting future technology investment plan. Our combined team look forward to working with FilePro customers to ensure continued quality of service and to understand how we can support their future business plans.”
Todd Keeler, CEO, FilePro commented, “We are delighted to embark on this new chapter with Actionstep. The Actionstep team have been fantastic to work with and we feel confident our customers will welcome the opportunities this new ownership provides them. We are excited to support Actionstep’s vision for modernising mid-market firms with innovative, flexible practice management technology.”
Actionstep plans to accelerate the expansion of its boutique and mixed-practice law firm customer base internationally. Since September 2020, when Actionstep announced an investment from growth-oriented private equity firm, Serent Capital, the company has nearly tripled its headcount through organic growth and acquisition and invested in numerous key product developments.
