Thomson Reuters Elite Achieves Two Major Milestones in North America with Foley & Mansfield

Leading Mid-size Firm Becomes First in the United States to Select MatterSphere, First in North America to Sign Dual Agreement with MatterSphere and 3E

LOS ANGELES, Jun. 25, 2013 – Thomson Reuters Elite today announced that leading national mid-size firm Foley & Mansfield has selected MatterSphere as its matter management solution and 3E as its financial time and billing platform. With the agreement, the firm becomes the first MatterSphere law firm client in the United States, as well as the first law firm in North America to sign a dual agreement with MatterSphere and 3E.

Foley & Mansfield, recently named to the 2013 National Law Journal 350 list, serves clients ranging from multi-national corporations to small businesses and individuals from offices in Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Oakland, St. Louis, and Seattle. When lateral expansion began to hinder the firm’s technology and support infrastructure, its decision makers decided to seek better alternatives for holistic matter management, introduce a robust document and contact management solution, and upgrade their finance and back office technology.

“To support the continued growth of our firm, we turned to Thomson Reuters Elite to provide a powerful matter and contact management solution to aid us with our document management needs and improve our management processes with unified functionality,” said Peter Torseth, Foley & Mansfield’s Director of Finance. “After a thorough evaluation, our decision was solidified when we realized there wasn’t anything else on the market that could offer an enterprise-wide platform the way Thomson Reuters Elite could. It was logical to integrate solutions from the same provider and we are looking forward to streamlining our practice with both MatterSphere and 3E.”

“Foley & Mansfield’s dual agreement with MatterSphere and 3E breaks ground on many fronts,” said Cary Burch, president of Thomson Reuters Elite. “We are thrilled that MatterSphere has entered the U.S. market with a leading national firm. Equally as exciting, is the first joint deal of MatterSphere and 3E in North America. Our goal has always been to support the firm’s needs in the long run, and I’m excited by the resulting opportunities for their growing practice.”

MatterSphere integrates with 3E, Enterprise, and many other financial management and document management platforms. It is embedded in the Microsoft Office environment to unite operations and promote collaboration across the enterprise and with a firm’s clients. Visit MatterSphere for more information.
