Litera acquires UK-based Objective Manager, enhancing its ability to provide actionable data to customers, which supports business growth and talent retention.

Litera, a global leader in legal technology solutions, has announced it has completed the acquisition of UK-based Objective Manager, the leading SaaS strategic planning and performance platform for the legal market.

Objective Manager is a multi-tenant SaaS platform for strategic planning, performance management, and talent engagement in law firms. It enables firms to accelerate their strategic and performance agenda by aligning their people to the firm’s strategic objectives.

Objective Manager advances Litera’s journey to help law firms leverage powerful data insight that informs intelligent and differentiated strategic firm plans, client plans, and people strategies.

“We are committed to investing heavily in the development and support of platforms that transform disparate data about clients, matters, people, and parties into usable and actionable information,” said Avaneesh Marwaha, Litera CEO. “We’ve heard from the market that unlocking performance data and investing further in developing their strategy and teams is a key need. Adding Objective Manager to Litera will help firms align around key firm goals, client needs, and people development.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Arlene Adams, Objective Manager CEO, said “We are excited to join Litera and accelerate our platform presence in the broader North American market. We believe the addition of Objective Manager to Litera will enhance how we can help law firms use meaningful data to create great firm strategies alongside developing and retaining top talent.

Founded in 2011, Objective Manager has a strong presence in the UK with 11 of the top 20 law firms as clients, including Baker McKenzie, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, and Norton Rose Fulbright.

Litera is also the owner of DocsCorp, an acquisition it made on 31 March 2021.
