In order to drive efficiency and increase automation within its business, Belgian law firm Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick is adopting 3E®, the market-leading enterprise business management solution from Thomson Reuters. As part of the multi-product deal, the firm also will be adopting eBillingHub®, Advanced Financial Reporting from Thomson Reuters, and partner solution Cosine Matter Planning.

Based in Brussels, Liedekerke was founded in 1965 and is one of Belgium’s foremost business law firms. The full-service law firm has established an international reputation owing to its breadth of expertise, which includes a strong advisory practice and an in-depth knowledge of Belgian and European law. As an essential complement to its advisory activities, it represents clients in complex litigation before national, European and international courts, both judicial and arbitral, the Court of Cassation, the Council of State and the Belgian Constitutional Courts. With more than 100 lawyers and 29 partners, Liedekerke is commonly recognized for its ability to provide first-rate, creative, and personalized full-service advice to clients. The firm recently opened a new office in Rwanda to expand its current Africa offering following and further implement the firm’s international strategy.

After a competitive review, Liedekerke selected 3E as its preferred business management platform for the future to bring greater automation and market-leading technology into the business. The implementation of 3E promises to drive operational efficiency and growth through its advanced architecture, industry-leading security, and customizable platform. Liedekerke also will benefit from the selection of eBillingHub, the pioneer and leading electronic billing solution from Thomson Reuters designed specifically for law firms. The robust rules capability which sits at the heart of eBillingHub, known as Greenlight, is based on the industry’s most robust database of corporate legal billing guidelines, containing more than 16,000 discrete billing rules from more than 7,000 corporate legal departments.

In addition, the deployment of Excel® and web-based budgeting and forecasting application Advanced Financial Reporting will significantly enhance the firm’s capability for financial analysis and reporting of operating expenses, fee earner revenue, fee earner compensation, and capital expenditures. Finally, the adoption of partner solution Cosine Matter Planning will help maximize the capabilities of the 3E platform through more accurate resourcing, pricing, and profitability of matters.
