Litera Microsystems acquires Workshare

Litera Microsystems today has announced its acquisition of Workshare including its products used for document comparison, protection and sharing.

Litera software is used for drafting, proofreading, comparing, repairing, cleaning and securing documents in the legal and life sciences industries worldwide

Avaneesh Marwaha, Litera Microsystems CEO said, “The legal industry has an increasing interest in finding end-to-end solutions rather than integrating and managing multiple products from multiple vendors. Workshare has been part of the drafting ecosystem for many years and many of our customers are Workshare customers too. We firmly believe that they are better served by bringing the organizations together.”

Michael Garrett, CEO of Workshare added, “We see this as a great opportunity to build on the strengths of each organization to better serve the market. Litera Microsystems and Hg have impressed us with their vision of a single supplier to improve the efficiency, productivity, and security of the document lifecycle and we’re looking forward to being part of that future.”

Headquartered in London, Workshare also operates offices in the US and Australia. More than two million professionals in 70 countries now use Workshare on their desktop, mobile or tablet.
