Elevate Services acquires OnRamp Systems

Los Angeles-based legal services provider Elevate Services has boosted its software business with the acquisition of innovative legal technology company OnRamp Systems Inc.

OnRamp is a Web 2.0 platform for law that works to help legal departments reduce costs and improve the quality of their work through collaboration. All of the company’s engineering team in Silicon Valley will join Elevate and Paul Lippe, the founder and CEO, will join the Elevate advisory board to focus on strategic legal technology development and client relationships.

Making lawyers more efficient

‘OnRamp will strengthen our quickly-growing legal technology business,’ said Liam Brown, founder and chairman of Elevate. ‘OnRamp’s technology provides a secure common platform enabling companies like Cisco to connect their legal departments with their outside counsel. The investments OnRamp has made in machine learning will help us develop software that makes lawyers more effective and efficient. More immediately, OnRamp’s US-based engineering team will improve our ability to deliver rapid prototype solutions for our clients.’

‘Benefit both legal departments and law firms’

Steve Harmon, VP of Legal Operations at Cisco Systems, anticipates that the acquisition will ‘accelerate the adoption of new methodologies, tools and standards that will benefit both legal departments and law firms.’
