JEGI CLARITY has advised American LegalNet (ALN) on their sale to Aderant, a subsidiary of Roper Technologies (NYSE: ROP).

Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Los Angeles, ALN is a respected provider of court forms, eFiling, calendaring and docketing solutions. Today ALN is a premier provider of “Desktop to Courthouse” litigation workflow solutions that include eDockets, Docket Direct, Forms WorkFlow, Smart Dockets, Docket Alerts and eFiling Portal. With the release of the ALN Cloud in March of 2021, ALN was first-to-market with a true cloud solution definitively advancing the legal tech space.

With more and more firms embracing a cloud-first strategy, Aderant’s acquisition of ALN will combine their cloud technology with the undisputed market-leading rules calendaring solution, CompuLaw, further cementing Aderant’s position as the number one solution 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. In acquiring American LegalNet, Aderant reiterates its commitment to redefining legal industry standards through the introduction of groundbreaking solutions.

Selling a company is a complex process.  It involves specialized expertise and a lot of work.  It was important to ALN and me that we engage a banker that had deep market knowledge, credibility with potential buyers, and that we could trust and rely upon. The JEGI CLARITY team did extraordinary work.  They were able to maximize value and find the right partner for ALN and completed the transaction in an accelerated timeframe.  They also served as an extension of our Finance and HR teams in order to produce models, customer databases and other critical deal documents that were critical to getting to a successful result.  Most importantly, they repeatedly demonstrated that they cared not only about the end result but about my team and me as individuals ensuring that the ultimate deal aligned with our goals and expectations.
