Litera Acquires BigSquare in Continued Effort to Bring All Aspects of Business Management Under One Roof

My running joke with the folks at Litera is that I have a “FedRAMP certified, machine learning compatible, cloud native data lake startup” just to see if the company will accidentally buy me out while running the rest of his acquisitions. When Litera acquired Kira Systems, reps told me the long-term goal was to bring the entire contract workflow together in one place. Which makes sense because it’s much easier to work with an end-to-end product.

This holistic philosophy extends beyond simple contracts to the entire management of law firms and is why the company today announced that it has acquired financial and business intelligence provider BigSquare.

BigSquare takes financial data and provides management teams with analysis and visualization allowing the company to strategize without relying on outside experts to interpret the mountains of data available.

“Shearman & Sterling has used BigSquare to help create and foster a seamless culture. Its fully cloud-based and configurable technology is very robust and secure. The initial implementation only took months compared to many years with other vendors in the market,” says Meredith Williams-Range, Director of Insights and Customer Value at Shearman & Sterling LLP. “Two key things make BigSquare stand out. First, we can configure the dashboard to meet our specific needs without the need for engineers. Second, the system is completely cloud-based. BigSquare helps make Shearman’s goal of delivering technology to any device, anytime, anywhere a reality.

With BigSquare joining the Litera fold, it can scale working with Litera’s global customer base and slip into Litera’s suite of business intelligence products enabling companies “to gain invaluable business insights and insights into data from Foundation, pricing and budgeting intelligence from Clocktimizer, and marketing intelligence. by Concept. Sheryl Hoskins, CEO of Litera, said, “Law firms continue to research and transition to cloud-based solutions, including financial BI. We view BigSquare as a valuable and strategic addition to Litera’s Firm Intelligence portfolio to deliver what customers are looking for in data and information that is accessible anywhere.

From transactional workflows to management strategy, Litera is committed to strengthening its ability to cover all law firm tasks with end-to-end solutions and continues to study the market to find suppliers capable of developing them.

Which brings me back to my startup’s hyper-automated, Metaverse-compatible, gamified blockchain solution for ERISA workflows. Call me.
