LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2012 –Sharp Tudhope Lawyers becomes the first New Zealand firm to choose Thomson Reuters Elite’s practice management solution. Elite’s solution, which is currently the number one mid-market practice management system in the UK, was recently released into the New Zealand market. Sharp Tudhope is a medium sized, commercially oriented practice, based in Tauranga.
