In March, Alma Asay joined Litera, after founding and then selling to Integreon the litigation management platform Allegory Law. Now, Asay and the product she created are together again, as Litera is announcing today that it has purchased Allegory Law.

For Litera, the acquisition adds litigation case management to its expanding array of products and capabilities, all centered around becoming a leading provider of legal workflow and workspace technology.

Allegory is a cloud-based litigation platform designed for complex, document-intensive litigation. Its purpose is to unify and manage all the information a litigation team needs regarding case documents, evidence and witnesses.

Asay, a former Gibson Dunn litigator, founded the company in 2012. In 2017, she sold it to global legal services provider Integreon, joining the company as chief innovation officer. Last March, Asay joined Litera as a domain expert and advisor on litigation.

Meanwhile, Litera in March acquired Best Authority, a leading product for generating tables of authorities in legal briefs. In August 2019, Litera acquired Doxly, and in July 2019, it acquired Workshare, combining the two companies’ products to create the deal management platform Litera Transact.

Litera says that just as the Doxly and Workshare acquisitions positioned it to transform transaction workspaces, its acquisition of Allegory and Best Authority, combined with its own product Litigation Companion, will position it to transform litigation workspaces.

“Last year the company set about transforming legal workspaces by bringing Doxly and Workshare Transact together to create a best of breed, truly global, deal management offering,” said Haley Altman, who founded Doxly and is now Litera’s global director of business development and strategy.

“With the acquisition of Allegory, we’re set to transform workspaces again, this time that of the litigation teams.”
