2022 has been a year of massive growth in the legal software industry and for Assembly Software, with laser-focused capital investment and many industry-acknowledged triumphs for Assembly to celebrate. We are exceptionally grateful to our customers, tireless and dedicated employees, strategic partners, industry experts, and trade publications, who have all made this banner year a reality.
As we close the books on 2022, we would like to share the top highlights that made it such a fantastic year for Assembly, from the innovative features we added to Neos to the industry accolades won and our comprehensive company rebranding to Assembly Software (or as we refer to ourselves, “Assembly”).
Revealed the new Assembly Software
We rebranded to Assembly Software to reunite three strong brands under a single entity. This required extensive coordination and input from stakeholders companywide and many loyal customers we engaged with. If you have ever undergone a rebrand, you will understand the magnitude of such a change and the orchestration required. We could not be happier with the result. We believe the updated styling, brilliant new colors—including Miami Blue as a tribute to Assembly's business origin—and sleek new website embody a brand at the forefront of case management technology.

Transitioned over 200 firms to Neos
This past year, Assembly’s Professional Services team worked around the clock with astounding results. We are excited to share that over 200 firms transitioned to Neos in 2022. The transition process is time-consuming for both parties and requires multiple stages, but our Professional Services department handled each implementation with discipline and determination. Our goal is to increase that number every year.

Neos recognized for outstanding excellence in multiple award categories
With all the demanding work we put into Neos this past year, it is incredibly validating when others recognize that it is a best-in-class case management software. We are thrilled to announce that Neos was named the Best of 2022 in The Legal Intelligencer, securing the #1 spot in Docketing & Calendaring Solutions and #2 in Case Management Solutions. It also won The Legal Intelligencer’s Hall of Fame award!
Neos also won the “Case Management Innovation of The Year” in the 2022 LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. Though our awards shelf is getting a bit crowded, we are more than happy to have been honored with these accolades and excited that our Product and Technology teams are enjoying these public commendations.
Assembly officially became a “Great Place to Work”
While everyone who works here could have told you as much, it is now official: Assembly is a “Great Place to Work!” for 2022 and 2023. As a remote company, it can sometimes be challenging to figure out how to build rapport with colleagues and celebrate together as a company. But we make it work, and it clearly shows.
