Minter Ellison Adelaide Selects ELITE 3E to Support Long Term Growth
Platform’s Unique Design and Workflow Capabilities Will Enable Firm to Seamlessly Expand
LOS ANGELES, Sep. 7, 2011 – Elite, part of Thomson Reuters, and Minter Ellison Adelaide, part of the Minter Ellison group of federated law firms, today announced that the firm has selected ELITE 3E as its financial and practice management platform. Elite 3E has now been deployed at two Minter Ellison firms; the firm’s East Coast group recently selected the platform as well. As South Australia’s largest commercial law firm, Minter Ellison's Adelaide team services blue chip clients and is committed to the economic growth and community development of South Australia. It also had a growing presence in the Darwin market.
“As a firm with a more proactive approach when it comes to using technology to make the lives of our lawyers more efficient, we were looking for more than just an incremental improvement in our practice management platform,” said Neil McInnes, Minter Ellison SA/NT's Business Systems Manager. “It was clear to us quite quickly that 3E was the only platform based entirely on new technology, and that its unique design and workflow development capabilities would provide a stable, long-term platform that could ensure our penchant for innovation could flourish unhindered.”
Michael Veasey, Minter Ellison SA/NT’s Director of Technology commented, “Thomson Reuters and Elite represent a solid business partner for our firm, and their continued success in the market only reinforces that our decision to invest in Elite 3E was the right one. In addition, with our East Coast firm deploying the 3E solution as well, there are a multitude of opportunities to generate new levels of collaborative efficiency, which is attractive both to us, and to our clients.”
"Minter Ellison Adelaide is the second firm within the Minter Ellison Group to select Elite 3E. We’re very pleased to welcome them to the Elite family and also to strengthen our presence in the Adelaide market,” said Kim Massana, president of Elite. "Of particular interest was their validation of Elite’s decision to invest heavily in an entirely new web-based platform. 3E is now the only platform in the market to be unhindered by outdated legacy architecture and design, and the only solution able to provide a real long term solution.”
Elite 3E offers powerful core financial and practice management features and built-in application development capabilities - all seamlessly integrated into one high-performance system. Designed from the ground up on Microsoft.NET, 3E provides an integrated development environment that enables firms to become more agile in responding to client needs.
