LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8, 2011 – Elite, part of Thomson Reuters, today announced that international law firm Minter Ellison has selected ELITE 3E as its financial and practice management platform. Minter Ellison is one of the largest full-service legal groups in the Asia Pacific region.

John Weber, Minter Ellison’s Chief Executive Partner, noted that the firm has already deployed Thomson Reuters' Hubbard One suite, which is the premier provider of marketing, business development and practice management software. "Adding the 3E platform to the mix made a lot of sense. This is an investment with long-term benefits for our clients and it supports our One Firm strategy. "
