Press Announcement

Law company Elevate today [January 8, 2019] announced it has acquired Halebury, the UK NewLaw legal resourcing firm. Halebury will operate as an Elevate business, retaining its team. With UK‑regulated Halebury on board, Elevate provides both in-house legal teams and law firms with a 360‑degree service offering spanning talent, resourcing, consulting, technology and managed services.

Commenting on the acquisition, John Croft, President of Elevate, said, “Halebury’s expert talent gives our customers access to an even deeper pool of senior in-house resources and a combined team that can lead and manage complex legal projects from end to end.”

Denise Nurse, co-founder of Halebury, said, “In addition to what this means for our clients, we are thrilled about what it means for our people. Elevate and Halebury combined provide an ideal home for specialist, creative and innovative talent. Our team will now operate on a global scale, leveraging the best possible training and career development opportunities, and our clients will benefit from our ability to attract and retain the finest legal and business minds.”

Janvi Patel, co-founder of Halebury added, “Both businesses were founded by entrepreneurs with a track record of pioneering alternative legal solutions for clients tired of traditional models and inefficient methods. Now clients have access to the combined expertise of a trailblazing innovator of legal resourcing and the technology and services of the market-leading law company.”

Elevate CEO Lokendra Tomar said, “This is another important step in our strategy to revolutionize the sourcing options in the global legal services market.”

The acquisition builds on a period of strong organic growth for Elevate, further expanding its international footprint and bringing its headcount to about 1,000 globally. In Q4 2018, Elevate acquired legal AI technology and consultancy LexPredict and Sumati Group, a leading provider of contract lifecycle management (CLM), augmenting its technology-enabled legal services to help law departments and law firms solve increasingly complex problems.
