Solutions from Thomson Reuters Elite Will Help Drive Operational Efficiency and Future Growth

Jul. 3, 2018

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, today announced that Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP has successfully transitioned to live operation on 3E®. The full deployment of the market-leading business management solution from Elite was completed in only 13 months and included a number of other solutions, including 3E Conflicts, 3E Records Management, and eBillingHub® from Thomson Reuters.

With 160 lawyers located throughout the U.S. and an affiliate law firm in Asia, Schnader's clients range from large international corporations to individual entrepreneurs across a number of jurisdictions and industries. To support its trajectory of growth, Schnader originally chose 3E in 2017 in order to better serve the changing needs of its clients through robust workflow and automation capabilities.

The scalable foundation of 3E will help the firm to better manage all operational aspects of its business, improving access to information and enhancing efficiency. In addition, implementing 3E Conflicts and 3E Records Management will enable the firm to confidently conduct their business with safety and security. eBillingHub, the first and only electronic billing solution designed specifically for law firms, will simplify the firm’s e-billing process and drastically reduce invoice delivery and collection times.

“Our decision to deploy 3E was strategic. As our business grows and our clients demand better value, we needed a solution that would improve our access to information, drive operational efficiency, and help us deliver better results for our clients,” said Nicholas LePore, Schnader’s managing partner. “3E delivers across the board, and we expect the renewal of our partnership with Thomson Reuters Elite will continue to deliver dividends for both us and our clients over the long term.”

The firm also praised the streamlined and highly effective Elite onboarding process. “I can’t imagine how our ‘live operation’ could have gone more smoothly, and we have been entirely pleased with the support that Elite has given us throughout this journey,” added Paul Daley, CFO at the firm and overall project manager for the implementation.
