In what must be assumed to be a u-turn on its plans to float, Axiom today (5 September) announced that it has taken a “significant investment” from Permira, albeit the sum is as yet undisclosed. The Axiom management team, led by CEO Elena Donio, will continue in their current roles. You will recall that Permira is already active in the legal tech sector having taken a controlling stake in LegalZoom in 2014.
Permira has made an investment in Axiom, a legal talent provider. No financial terms were disclosed.
Axiom has been blazing new trails in the legal industry since its launch in 2000. What began as an upstart legal services provider coyly straddling the law firm/service company divide has become a trusted global provider to half of the Fortune 100 legal departments.
