Actionstep acquires Perth-based competitor FilePro to grow mid-market offering

New Zealand-founded cloud practice management system vendor Actionstep has acquired Perth-based competitor FilePro, which provides case and document management, accounting and timekeeping to customers from sole practitioners to large law firms in Australia. The combined company will service almost 28,000 subscribers globally and provide FilePro’s circa 4,000 legal professional customers with a cloud roadmap. 

This announcement comes on the heels of Actionstep’s acquisition of the legal practice software company, LawMaster, in September 2022 and bolsters Actionstep’s position in the mid-market in Australia and New Zealand.  

David Hepburn, global president of Actionstep said: “Together we offer customers and team members an opportunity to be part of a global business and an exciting future technology investment plan. Our combined team look forward to working with FilePro customers to ensure continued quality of service and to understand how we can support their future business plans.”

Todd Keeler, CEO of FilePro said: “The Actionstep team have been fantastic to work with and we feel confident our customers will welcome the opportunities this new ownership provides them.”

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The news comes as Actionstep continues to invest in the US market, where it has approaching 1,000 legal professional customers. In April 2022 it brought in Christian McLaughlin from Litify to head up global partnerships and in February this year hired Valerie Connell – previously a product leader at Carrus and before that NetDocuments – as SVP of product. It opened a US head office in Denver late last year.
