Mark Woodward who, along with Neil Ewin, was one of the key architects of the Solicitec/Visualfiles case management software success story, has left the company, departing this August just over a year after Visualfiles was acquired by LexisNexis.

A spokesperson at LexisNexis Visualfiles said that having spent the past 12 months working on the integration of the Visualfiles business within the LexisNexis group, Woodward (under the terms of his earn-out deal with Lexis) had the opportunity to leave the company this summer and decided to do so, so he could spend more time with his family, which includes a young son. Woodward is however still retained by Visualfiles on a consultancy basis.
