Aderant Acquires American LegalNet

Aderant, a global provider of business software to law firms, announced the acquisition of American LegalNet (ALN), a provider of court forms, eFiling, calendaring and docketing solutions. Hence, Aderant and ALN customers will get access to an expanded suite of solutions to meet the demands of their clients and foster digital transformation. 

Los Angeles based ALN was founded in 1996 to become a premier provider of “Desktop to Courthouse” litigation workflow solutions that include eDockets, Docket Direct, Forms WorkFlow, Smart Dockets, Docket Alerts and eFiling Portal. In March of 2021, ALN Cloud was released in order to advance the legal tech space with a true cloud solution.

Aderant is a global industry leader which provides comprehensive business management software for law firms and other professional services organizations.

According to Aderant, with more and more firms embracing a cloud-first strategy, Aderant’s acquisition of ALN will combine their cloud technology with the market-leading rules calendaring solution, CompuLaw, further cementing Aderant’s position in the legal industry. Over the coming months, Aderant will strategically combine the best features of both ALN eDockets and CompuLaw to create a native cloud calendaring and docketing solution.

We are thrilled to welcome ALN to the Aderant family. At Aderant, we wake up every day with one thing on our minds: bringing best-in-class software to the legal market. We are confident that pairing ALN Cloud with our market-leading CompuLaw rules solution will allow us to do just that,” said Aderant President and CEO Chris Cartrett. “Erez [CEO and founder of ALN] has built an incredible organization, and we look forward to what our teams will do together.”

Joining forces with Aderant will provide the ALN organization and its clients with the absolute best legal technology on the market. Supporting the work of the lawyers and their staff has always been at the core of what we wanted to accomplish,” said Erez Bustan, CEO and founder of American LegalNet. “We are excited to have found a home that is already accelerating the speed of innovation within the legal technology industry and are proud to now be a part of that.”

Since 2011, Aderant has acquired and integrated over a dozen software providers. In acquiring American LegalNet, Aderant aims to reiterate its commitment to redefining legal industry standards.
