The news follows the company’s acquisition of LawMaster and mattero in September of last year.

The combination of Actionstep and Perth-based company FilePro, the former said in a statement, will provide existing FilePro customers with access to extended cloud technologies and drive additional product development investment, as well as accelerate the availability of cloud technology to them.

The addition of FilePro to Actionstep means that the company will service almost 28,000 subscribers globally.


Speaking about the acquisition, Actionstep global president, David Hepburn, said: “We are excited to join forces with FilePro, who have an impressive history in the Australian legaltech space.”

“Together we offer customers and team members an opportunity to be part of a global business and an exciting future technology investment plan,” he outlined.

“Our combined team looks forward to working with FilePro customers to ensure continued quality of service and to understand how we can support their future business plans.”

FilePro chief executive, Todd Keeler, added: “We are delighted to embark on this new chapter with Actionstep. The Actionstep team have been fantastic to work with and we feel confident our customers will welcome the opportunities this new ownership provides them.”

“We are excited to support Actionstep’s vision for modernising mid-market firms with innovative, flexible practice management technology,” he said.

Actionstep, the statement went on, plans to accelerate the expansion of its boutique and mixed-practice law firm customer base internationally. Since September 2020, when it announced an investment from growth-oriented private equity firm, Serent Capital, the company has nearly tripled its headcount through organic growth and acquisition and invested in numerous key product developments.
