Roundup: Legal tech companies make news early in 2023

LiquidText, the reading, note-taking, and document analysis platform used by legal professionals, among others, announced the launch of the enterprise edition of its platform.

The new edition designed for large deployments includes options for integration with document management software, as well as enhanced security, greater privacy and data location control.

“The LiquidText Enterprise Edition is the natural evolution of the product and allows companies to have systematic and controlled usage, while at the same time reducing overall risk to the organization,” said Craig Tashman, founder and CEO of LiquidText. “Because this version integrates with other important tools that firms use, it offers even greater productivity and efficiency improvements that knowledge workers so often seek.”


The contract lifecycle management provider announced a new brand identity that emphasizes the company’s commitment “to creating cutting-edge AI solutions and delivering excellent customer experience.”

Though its name will remain the same, Evisort’s refreshed product design and website builds on the company’s announcement last month of generative AI for contract drafting and negotiation.

Additionally, the company said contract negotiation is just the beginning of its generative AI plans, as it continues to expand its platform’s capabilities.

“Evisort’s technology adds a personal touch to AI, augmenting performance and empowering customers to unlock the full potential of their data,” said Michaela Dempsey, Evisort’s chief marketing officer.


Exterro, a legal, governance and compliance platform, announced it has acquired Zapproved, an e-discovery software provider.

Exterro said in a press release Thursday that market forces in privacy, digital forensics and incident response have created a need for a comprehensive and unified solution that can identify, understand and manage data in a contextual manner.

Bobby Balachandran, CEO & president of Exterro, said both his company and Zapproved “have shared a common vision for providing market-leading software and support for our clients and partners.” The combination of the companies “will continue that vision by delivering enhanced value to our constituents,” he added.


The cloud-based ediscovery platform announced it has been awarded a US Department of the Interior (DOI) task order over 5 years that pays up to $10.6 million.

The department will use Everlaw’s advanced ediscovery platform to automate its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) workflows, ediscovery support and other administrative actions to help facilitate efficient and effective responses to document production requests.

Everlaw also wants to help future-proof DOI’s technology stack by managing and centralizing the four million-plus documents that had previously been distributed across its bureaus and offices.

“It’s an honor to work with DOI and support their ongoing mission to protect our natural resources,” said Angela Kovach, senior director, public sector solutions and operations at Everlaw.


the Software provider for legal and accounting professionals announced the naming of three new executives.

Greg Reynolds, the company’s new chief technology officer, brings more than 25 years of experience in engineering cloud solutions for the automotive, financial, insurance and benefits industries.

Arik Moav, the newly appointed CFO, comes to AbacusNext from GoodRx where he served as senior vice president of finance.

James O’Connell-Cooper, the new senior vice president of marketing, previously led marketing teams in Australia and the Americas for Xero.

“We are thrilled to have such respected and industry-leading experts join our executive team,” said Keri Gohman, CEO of AbacusNext.

In 2020, case point also achieved FedRAMP Moderate Authorizationwhich the company said fast-tracked the StateRAMP certification process.
