Leading City Law Firm Selects SaaS Version of Industry-leading Business Management Solution from Thomson Reuters Elite

Jun. 10, 2020

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal Professionals division of Thomson Reuters, today announced that City law firm Fox Williams LLP will be implementing the cloud version of 3E®, the leading enterprise business management solution. The firm selected 3E Cloud, which recently became available in the UK, after a competitive market review.

Fox Williams—an independent business law firm founded in 1989 and based in the City of London—is positioned as a quality alternative to the larger City firms. The adoption of 3E Cloud is a natural next step for the firm, which already has other cloud-based solutions in place. It also builds on the firm’s long-standing relationship with Thomson Reuters, with the firm using a number of solutions such as Practical Law™, Westlaw®, and HighQ.

The firm will benefit from superior data security, power and load capacity flexibility, improved disaster recovery, and enhanced risk management of business data as a result of moving to 3E Cloud. In addition, they will be able to reduce their infrastructure costs and the need for on-premises hardware while gaining flexibility to scale up or down and getting immediate access to the latest features through automated upgrades.

The ability to upgrade to a robust and scalable practice management solution while staying agile and flexible was an important requirement for Fox Williams. “Being able to benefit from a large law firm solution was a real differentiator for us,” says Jeremy Gubbay, partner and chief operating officer of Fox Williams. “3E Cloud gives us the benefits of 3E plus the security, managed service, and automatic upgrades of a cloud offering, all without the upfront investment that would be needed for an on-premises system.”

3E Cloud is the first Software as a Service (SaaS) financial management solution that provides large and mid-sized law firms with the robust tools to manage all operational aspects of their business. Designed with a simple and safe implementation model for firms of all sizes, 3E cloud provides an Elite-managed cloud environment using the Microsoft® Azure® platform. The Microsoft Azure platform offers cloud confidence with nearly unlimited scale, 24/7 monitoring, advanced security rigor, and innovation opportunities unmatched in the industry.
