Full-service Firm Selects MatterSphere to Streamline and Automate Matter Management from End to End

Jul. 2, 2015

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced that Siskinds LLP has become the first Canadian client of MatterSphere®. The full-service firm selected the intuitive, integrated front-office solution to increase efficiency across its four offices in Ontario and Quebec with enhanced automation. MatterSphere is the matter management component of the Client & Matter Management offerings, an integral segment of the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution.

Siskinds selected MatterSphere to streamline the creation, management, and storage of documents from one central location. The firm’s decision makers were drawn to the solution’s automated matter workflow and tracking processes, which boost efficiency and productivity across all of the firm’s locations. The firm will also take advantage of MatterSphere’s precedent templates, which can be accessed with a simple click, as opposed to being created from scratch.

“We’re looking forward to having a consistent workflow process, from intake to the final stages of each matter,” said Ryan Bryson, IT manager at Siskinds. “MatterSphere will help our staff save time not only through its automated document assembly and management processes, but also by enabling them to collaborate on any matter, regardless of location.”

“Acquiring its first client in a new region underscores the efforts that MatterSphere is driving to address a broader range of challenges commonly faced in the legal industry,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management at Elite. “We are thrilled to expand MatterSphere’s global footprint to include Canada, and we anticipate that MatterSphere will benefit firms in the region similar to Siskinds with a powerful way to efficiently manage matters.”
