ICYMI: Litera acquires Salesforce-based CRM Upper Sigma 

Litera has acquired client relationship management vendor Upper Sigma, in an acquisition that hasn’t been formally announced but that has been talked about on LinkedIn by Upper Sigma’s management team and which features in our brand-new CRM report out today (22 February.) 

Upper Sigma was founded in London in 2020 and has taken Salesforce – arguably the generic CRM market leader – and customised it for the legal sector. We are told that Upper Sigma will remain on the Salesforce platform. 

Founded by Emile Van Den Berg, Upper Sigma has used Salesforce’s platform-as-a-service capability to build its dedicated legal offering. You can read a full analysis of its functionality by downloading the report here. 

Commenting on the acquisition on LinkedIn, Van Den Berg said: “This strategic acquisition will allow for advanced integrations into the Litera Firm Intelligence product suite. Everything is business as usual as we further invest and build on the product, continuing to aim at being the number one legal CRM built on Salesforce, the most powerful and secure platform.” 

This is the latest in a string of acquisitions by Litera, which is backed by private equity group Hg.
