CaseLines has been acquired by Thomson Reuters Corporation

The fast-growing legal SaaS firm Netmaster Holdings Limited (CaseLines) has been sold to Thomson Reuters Corporation, as the business intelligence and information firm looks to expand its cloud-based software offering within the legal sector.

CaseLines is a provider of a cloud-based SaaS end-to-end evidence management platform for use across public safety, justice and the legal sectors. The platform offers a single, secure home in which to manage all types of legal evidence. This acquisition comes at a time when CaseLines has seen its services in high demand due to COVID-19 as global courts are being forced to conduct trials on a remote basis. Though CaseLines is already operational in 25 countries, and to date has conducted over 400,000 trials through the platform, Thomson Reuters will look to further expand the footprint of the company through leveraging its own global reach.

Thomson Reuters Corporation is a Canada-based provider of integrated information solutions to business and professional customers in the financial, legal, tax and accounting, scientific, healthcare and media markets.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the founders of CaseLines on the sale of the business to Thomson Reuters, working closely with one of Oaklins’ teams in New York throughout this transaction to achieve a great result for the client.
