[May 10, 2023 | Williamsville, NY] Knox Capital, a private equity firm with significant legal and financial technology portfolio assets, recently closed on its acquisition of GODeeds, a national provider of attorney-prepared documents. The acquisition builds on Knox’s previous investments in the space while leveraging a core competency associated with automating mission-critical documents such as deeds, releases, assignments, and trusts. In 2021 Knox Capital purchased bundle, a national provider of legal real estate documents.
With the combined market share and service offerings of bundle and GODeeds, Knox’s holdings make it a leader in the attorney-prepared document space with service offerings covering everything from real estate transactions, which includes closings, refinances, deeds, leases, and more, to estates, trusts, and other personal and estate document preparation.
This is the second deal between Knox Capital and entrepreneur Frank Dec, Esq., who founded both bundle, formerly ANADeeds, and GODeeds. Dec will continue to serve as Chief Executive Officer of both Knox-owned companies. No staffing or organizational changes are expected as part of the acquisition.
“As bundle continues to expand its offerings of attorney-prepared documents, adding GOdeeds to the bundle family is a natural fit. GOdeeds is an established major player in the estate planning industry, serving high-profile clients such as LegalZoom and Zillow,” says Dec. “Combining these businesses offers an exceptional opportunity to expand together and dominate their respective markets, which is undoubtedly an exciting prospect.”
“We’re excited to grow our partnership with Frank and drive the business aggressively into other areas where attorney-prepared documents are needed while supporting and investing in GODeeds core business and clients,” said Alex Gregor with Knox Capital.
The acquisition of GODeeds complements other legal and financial technology assets in the Knox Capital portfolio, including interests in major loan servicing platforms, case management systems, invoicing, billing, claims filing, e-notary, and attorney-prepared documents.
