CORAL GABLES, Fla., Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --TrialWorks and Needles, the leading case management software companies for plaintiff lawyers, today announced the formation of Assembly Software LLC. Going forward, Assembly Software will serve as the umbrella company for both brands. Putting TrialWorks and Needles under common ownership leverages the combined scale and financial resources of both businesses, allowing for meaningfully accelerated investments in product development and greater management strength and depth. Assembly Software's size and leadership position, with over 40,000 users and 35+ years of experience developing and supporting legal software, distinguish it from any other player in the market.
Assembly Software's formation comes during a period of rapid growth and investment for the company. Last month, Assembly's leadership announced the launch of Needles 5.0. This release marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the company's software, and in December helped drive the most rapid single month of user additions in the company's history. Built on the experience and feedback of the company's market-leading 2500+ law firms, Needles 5.0 brings users new functionality including a web-enabled API, texting, operational dashboards, and more. The company also recently made a number of important strategic hires, culminating in the addition of a new COO, Vista Equity Partners portfolio-veteran David Wagner IV.
"We are excited to announce the creation of Assembly Software. We are committed to being the technology provider of choice for law firms across the country and this is another critical step in advancing our ability to provide market-leading solutions to our industry-leading customer base," said Ryan Pakter, Managing Director of Assembly Software. "Bringing TrialWorks and Needles together gives us the scale and financial strength to introduce exciting new value-added solutions to our customers. We remain fully committed to supporting and developing both TrialWorks and Needles over the long-term."
During 2019, Assembly Software intends to roll out Needles Cloud, a browser-based version of Needles' case management solution that adds the flexibility of being in the cloud to the robust and intuitive feature set of the new Needles 5.0. The company will also continue to expand its marketplace offering, putting the power of choice into the hands of Assembly Software users. By allowing new developers and legal industry service providers to access Assembly's enormous network of users, the company is creating an exciting value proposition for its customers as well as those that serve them.
Additionally in 2019, Assembly Software plans to broaden its insurance defense case management solution. In 2018, the company added a record number of leading defense firms as well as several prominent insurance companies to its list of clients.
"Assembly Software, which holds the best-of-breed solutions for both litigation and settlement firms in the plaintiff attorney space, creates a very exciting platform for growth," said Adam Jiwan, the Co-Chairman of Assembly Software. "The combined market strength and technology horsepower of these two longstanding solutions position Assembly Software to reach an even broader audience and cement our place in the market as a leader in legal software."
