Filevine Acquires Contract Lifecycle Management Leader, Outlaw
Acquisition Extends Market Leading Legal Tech Platform Into Contract Management
Filevine, the top legal tech platform, announced that they have acquired Outlaw. Outlaw became the G2.com #1 Momentum Leader in contract management by reimagining document creation, editing, and realtime end-to-end collaboration. The companies believe that the future of legal work will be one where contracts, databases, and documents are merged together.
Filevine CEO Ryan Anderson stated, “When we started to investigate the Contract Management space, it was obvious that Outlaw was the breakout product on the market. From their easy-to-use workflows and powerful customization for complex documents, they were simply a cut above. By bringing them under the Filevine umbrella, we will help all legal practitioners, whether in the corporate or private practice setting, focus on results rather than dealing with busywork.”

Both Outlaw and Filevine have been dedicated to providing a connected and seamless experience for legal teams and their clients. The areas considered “legal work” are quickly expanding and it is critical that legal tech expand to keep up. Today, Filevine is growing the capabilities of their platform to include contract management. This is a combination of the top legal tech platform with the most innovative contract and document editing software to create the core operating system for highly collaborative, connected legal work.
With this acquisition, legal teams will be able to add contracts and documents to their workflows and better deliver stellar outcomes for the clients they serve. In particular, corporate counsel teams (and those who work with them) will win from being able to manage all their projects, with contracts included, all in one place.
“We started Outlaw to build a better way to do corporate contracting from the ground up,” said Outlaw CEO Evan Schneyer. “When Filevine approached us, the synergies were apparent from the start. Integrating Outlaw’s tech into Filevine will add substantial value for Filevine’s entire user base of 25,000+ lawyers. Now, they will have best in class contract management, with Filevine’s leading platform built around workflows, communications, and reporting. This union means a more complete solution, all customized, all for them.”
Current Outlaw CEO, Evan Schneyer and Cofounder Dan Dalzotto will continue to lead Outlaw’s product development and will be reporting to Ryan Anderson, CEO of Filevine. Outlaw will continue to operate but with additional engineering, customer success, and sales support from Filevine to accelerate its leadership in the Contract Lifecycle Management space.
Over the upcoming months Filevine plans to deliver more features, more services, and more programs that will help make legal work more efficient and effective. With this acquisition, it is building the premiere legal platform tailored for modern legal teams and the highly complex work they do every day.
