Thomson (TOC) acquired LiveNote Technologies, a provider of transcript and evidence-management software to litigators and court reporters.

Terms weren't disclosed, but Toronto-based Thomson said LiveNote, based in San Francisco, will bolster Thomson West's market-leading suite of litigation solutions.

LiveNote and Westlaw Litigator are the critical building blocks in West's strategy to launch a truly integrated litigation platform, the company said.

LiveNote will continue operations from its San Francisco and Denver locations, and key members of the management team led by Will Robberts, president, will continue with the business. LiveNote founder Graham Smith also remains with the business under a consulting agreement.
