Our Roots

Our story began in 2006 when Bill4Time pioneered the first native SaaS solution in the legal technology industry. Led by the guidance of law and consulting firms, this time-tracking technology ushered a better and faster way for lawyers to manage their business. 

Between 2008 and 2012, MerusCase and PracticePanther quickly followed—taking the same SaaS-based model and boosting its power by tenfold. These solutions offer a diversified, full-suite of practice management tools tailored to law firms with specific needs and practice areas.

With the support and backing of Alpine Investors, we spent 2017 to 2019 bringing these three world-class businesses together to form Paradigm. Then in 2020, we acquired Headnote, a new and innovative online payments software built to supercharge both payments and AR processes for all law firms.

We believe all law firms are not created equal and a one-size-fits-all technology approach doesn’t exist. By bringing these four products together, we can quickly experiment with new ideas and share best practices and resources, all with the goal of innovating faster and better serving the legal industry.

Our Values

When uniting four businesses, we took care to evaluate individual principles and ideals, so that we could build a new, cohesive, fresh set of standards.
