SAGlobal finalizes LexisOne® Acquisition
The addition of LexisOne practice management solution to the Legal360 product suite will dramatically change the landscape of the law firm practice management and time & billing marketplace.
Atlanta, GA – March 4, 2019
SAGlobal® announced today that they have completed the acquisition of the LexisOne® practice management solution from LexisNexis®. The acquisition becomes part of their Legal360® offering to create a new leader in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Practice Management, Finance & Accounting and Business Development solutions for law firms.
Built on the award-winning Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform, LexisOne is a fully integrated business management suite providing practice management, time and billing, accounting, and human resource management capabilities. By using a single system for everything from time recording and matter management, to HR and procurement, LexisOne helps leading law firms differentiate on service, optimize their operations, empower their employees, and gain real-time insights across their firm.
“This is exciting because it is a solution built on top of Microsoft’s proven Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations (formerly Dynamics AX) platform and places it in the hands of Microsoft’s leading global partner in the professional services sector", stated Stephen James, Global CEO for SAGlobal. “We believe law firms are looking for a new alternative and Microsoft, SAGlobal and LexisOne can deliver this alternative. There are tens of thousands of large companies running their businesses on this platform and we are fully prepared to offer this next generation solution to law firms.”
SAGlobal Americas CEO, Whit McIsaac explained why this should matter to law firms, stating “The law firm practice management marketplace is dominated by two legacy suppliers with older technology, and they are not architected for the cloud. The convergence of SAGlobal, Legal360 and LexisOne places the development of a best-in-class practice management solution in the right hands. We have experience with the platform as well as dedicated development, consulting, delivery and support teams. We also have deep legal industry expertise, a series of complimentary legal software products, the global reach and the strong Microsoft relationship necessary to make this successful.”
“I have worked closely with both LexisNexis and SAGlobal for over 8 years”, stated Patrick Fitzhenry, Microsoft Dynamics’ Global ISV Partner Director. “The combination of these law firm technologies, along with other Microsoft solutions such as Office365, provides the first ever end-to-end total solution for law firms based entirely on the Microsoft platform. This is truly a game changer for the legal market.”
