Liberty advises the management team of BigHand on their partnership with Levine Leichtman Capital Partners for Next Phase of Growth

Liberty Corporate Finance (“Liberty”) advised the management team of BigHand on the sale by Bridgepoint Development Capital (BDC) to Levine Leichtman Capital Partners (“LLCP”), a global private equity firm.

It’s great to be starting the next chapter of the BigHand growth story with LLCP, and it has been fantastic working with Mick and the team at Liberty - they have given us first class advice and support.

BigHand is a leader in workflow, productivity and profitability software and has over 3,500 clients and 600,000 users worldwide.  Since BDC’s initial investment, BigHand has transitioned to being a multi-product company, more than doubled employee headcount, completed six successful acquisitions and seen significant revenue growth across the UK, North America and APAC regions.

Now, supported by LLCP, BigHand plans to accelerate its growth. Under the umbrella vision of empowering the business of law, BigHand’s central strategic aims include; continuing its transformation into being a full workflow business, establishing a wider customer base throughout North America, further integrating and cloud-enabling the expanding product portfolio while also acting as the most trusted legal technology provider.

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

It was a pleasure working with Sam and his team on this important transaction.  We have advised the team over a number of years and look forward to keeping in close contact as they continue their growth trajectory with the support of LLCP.
