Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced that leading Singapore-based law firm, Shook Lin & Bok LLP, has become the latest firm to select 3E® as its technology-driven enterprise and financial management platform for the future. An integral component of the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution, 3E offers robust workflow and automation capabilities and a scalable foundation built to help firms manage all operational and financial aspects of their business.

Shook Lin & Bok LLP staffs more than 100 lawyers and will become the third firm to operate 3E within Singapore, representing considerable growth in that region for Elite. Furthermore, the firm will be replacing its existing practice management system with 3E.

The choice of 3E was directly attributable to the scalability of the platform, allowing Shook Lin & Bok LLP lawyers to streamline and automate their day-to-day business functions and improve overall productivity.

Cutting-edge reporting capabilities will also provide real-time and customizable financial statements with the ability to drill down and slice and dice the data to give a holistic view of the firm’s performance. For a firm with a regional presence, the unique mobile capabilities of 3E will also be key, allowing round-the-clock access to the platform from wherever the lawyers are in the world.
