Top 10 Australian Firm Sets MatterSphere as the Company Standard to Support Recent and Future Acquisitions across the UK

LOS ANGELES, June 3, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, today announced that MatterSphere, the matter management component of Elite’s Client & Matter Management offerings, has been selected to support leading Australian and UK firm Slater & Gordon throughout its continued expansion. Client & Matter Management is an integral segment of Elite’s enterprise business management solution (EBMS), a comprehensive suite designed to help clients manage every aspect of their businesses.

“We inherited several disparate solutions with our recent acquisitions across the UK, making it critical that we consolidate our technology with a single matter management solution capable of supporting our extensive growth plans for the coming years,” said Slater & Gordon’s Head of IT Jonathan Pangrazio. “MatterSphere is highly received by our Australian offices, which made it the frontrunner to replace existing software and manage sizable uptake and growth. Our decision to implement MatterSphere makes it the company standard as we continue to penetrate new markets and acquire more firms.”

MatterSphere is long established in Slater & Gordon’s Australian offices, and with a rapidly growing presence in the UK, the firm made the decision to roll the solution out to 1,250 users in the British Isles building the platform to support future user growth. . MatterSphere maintains the preferred functionality of Slater & Gordon’s incumbent processes within a single platform, and the offering’s highly configurable software development kit (SDK) benefits the firm with the agility and scalability it needs to meet its aggressive global expansion plans.

“We are thrilled that MatterSphere has become the global partner for Slater & Gordon moving forward, with MatterSphere as the matter management support for future acquisitions,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management for Elite. “Elite’s global presence was a main decision factor for MatterSphere, which matches Slater & Gordon’s continued expansion plans.
