Global Law Firm Clyde & Co Selects MatterSphere to Replace Eight Disparate Solutions

LOS ANGELES Dec. 5, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite, a leading global provider of enterprise business management solutions to professional services firms, today announced that Clyde & Co LLP has decided to consolidate its case management technology with MatterSphere, the matter management component of the Client & Matter Management offerings. Clyde & Co, a rapidly expanding global law firm with over 1,500 lawyers located across 40 offices in six continents, selected MatterSphere to replace various existing case management solutions. Client & Matter Management is an integral segment of Elite’s enterprise business management solution, a comprehensive suite designed to help clients manage every aspect of their businesses, including business development, risk management, client and matter management, and financial management.

After introducing several new offices and teams through various acquisitions, Clyde & Co’s decision makers began to focus on providing consistency in case management firm-wide. The firm ultimately concluded that MatterSphere is the optimal solution to replace its eight existing systems and boost efficiency across all global locations. The firm’s decision makers selected MatterSphere for its ease of use and the software developer toolkit (SDK), which allows for fast workflow development, rapid deployment, and subsequent adoption. They were also impressed by the integration capabilities between MatterSphere and the firm’s existing 3E solution, creating a future opportunity to leverage the Workspace workflow platform.

“We are delighted to further collaborate with Elite, a partner that understands our requirements and ensures we are investing in leading edge technology that will continue to benefit our firm well into the future,” said Clyde & Co Global CIO Chris White. “In addition to consolidating various case management platforms, implementing MatterSphere helps our firm deliver services that exceed the expectations of our clients in the most efficient and profitable manner.”

“After evaluating systems from several vendors, we are thrilled that Clyde & Co decided to expand upon the matter management component of its Elite enterprise business management solution to provide its clients with the greatest benefits possible,” said Bill Burch, VP Global Sales Elite “Having a firm with such a strong global presence select MatterSphere speaks volumes to its ability to provide a single unified view of information from all firm-wide business areas, no matter how extensive.”
