Citizens Advises LawLogix on its Acquisition by Equifax from Thoma Bravo-Backed Hyland

PROVIDENCE, RI – Citizens M&A Advisory announced that it served as the transaction advisor to LawLogix, a leading provider of cloud-based I-9 and immigration case management software, on its acquisition by Equifax. In 2015, LawLogix was acquired by Hyland, a portfolio company of Thoma Bravo.
