Oct 6, 2017

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced latest figures that highlight its continued success across the global legal industry. To date, 216 law firms worldwide have selected 3E® thanks to the leading technological capability and improved functionality of the 3E platform. In addition, 68% of global top 100 law firms who have bought a new system in the past five years chose the market-leading financial and practice management system.

Overall, 137 organizations have gone live on 3E, with 13 new go-lives in the last six months alone. 29% of these live clients have transitioned from the Elite legacy Enterprise® solution underscoring the growing success of the migration to 3E. Global firms that have signed up to 3E include:

These wins put 3E further ahead of its competitors. Among those firms that evaluated 3E as part of a migration to a new system in the past ten years, 3E has been selected by 38 Am Law 200 firms in comparison to Aderant Expert’s 17. This makes Elite the leading provider of legal enterprise financial solutions to the top law firms throughout the US.

In addition to the rapid growth of 3E, several other Elite solutions continue to gain significant ground in the marketplace. 90% of Am Law 200 firms, 92% of global 100 firms, and 62% of UK Top 100 firms now use at least one product in the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution, continuing the trend for strong accelerated growth for Elite worldwide.
