The Xakia story
A simple and intuitive legal matter management software
Xakia aims to democratize in-house legal matter management software with its platform, leading to mass adoption across the entire legal ecosystem.
We believe that all in-house legal teams, regardless of size and location, should have access to simple and cost-effective matter management tools that can help them streamline and automate their legal processes and increase efficiency and productivity amid growing responsibilities.
Xakia was created in 2016 in response to a widespread research project targeted at understanding the daily demands on in-house legal team management. A comprehensive list of in-house needs led to the building of Xakia and continues to inform the user-designed approach to its functionality.
Xakia was built with a pure focus on legal in-house needs and that remains the core driver of future software development.
We're proud to have been named as one of the 19 Representative Vendors listed in the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Corporate Legal Matter Management, a 2022 Legal Technology Trailblazer by The National Law Journal and named as an Excellence Awardee in the Legal Service Provider of the Year category for the Australasian Law Awards 2022.

What does Xakia mean?
Xakia/Zakia (Ză: ki: äh)
Sakia is the name of a Persian water wheel capable of considerable efficiency in collecting and distributing water.
In-house legal teams, akin to a sakia water wheel, must collect information, requirements and risk, process them through a funnel of knowledge and experience and dispense solutions in the most efficient manner possible.
Legal resources are often spread extremely thin but must ensure all parts of an organization are considered in the application of skill when delivering solutions.
In an ever-expanding regulatory landscape, legal departments must constantly find new, inventive ways to address the demand on their time.
Empowered with simple, clear legal department intelligence (aka. legal data analytics), in-house legal teams now have the capacity to understand their legal function and instantly identify opportunities for efficiency gains and productivity improvements.
Implementing efficiencies leaves room for further understanding and identification of the next opportunity to optimize your team. And so, the circle of efficiency loops and continuous improvement begins to turn - just like a water wheel.
