Alternative legal services provider Integreon has acquired litigation management software company Allegory Law.
Allegory’s founder and CEO, Alma Asay, and her team will go in house at Integreon. Asay will become the company’s chief innovation officer.
“Technology is evolving to the point where it needs to be integrated into all alternative legal services. The addition of Allegory allows Integreon to extend its growing lead in the discovery space and, for the first time, provide a true end-to-end solution for legal departments and outside counsel,” Integreon CEO Bob Rowe said in a press release.
Allegory is a platform that helps prepare evidence, build binders and manage depositions while cross-referencing every aspect of a case.
Named an ABA Journal Legal Rebel earlier this year, Asay started her career as an associate at Gibson Dunn in New York, but left in 2012 to establish Allegory. She has managed all aspects of Allegory’s growth since then including client outreach, a role she will build upon at Integreon.
“I’m excited to spend more time focused on what I’ve loved most about building Allegory—helping law firms and in-house counsel embrace innovation and deploy new technology to their advantage,” Asay said in the release.
This latest acquisition by Integreon is a part of a larger move by the company to use more technology in its work. In October, it announced a partnership with Kira, an artificial intelligence legal technology company.
The cost of the acquisition was not disclosed.
