Seattle-based Perkins Coie, which has 700+ lawyers, has chosen Elite 3E as its new financial and practice management system. Aware its legacy system was due for an upgrade, Perkins Coie undertook an in-depth evaluation of financial and practice management systems aimed at large law firms. Based on input from legal, administrative, and technical stakeholders within the firm, Perkins selected 3E as its platform to manage the firm's continued growth.

According to Orange Rag data, the firm's legacy system is an older generation Aderant PMS.

• Elite report that its UK/EMEA User Group meeting (which took place in London on 16th September) attracted nearly double last year’s attendance with 230 attendees from 66 law firms gathering to learn the latest methods of optimizing their Elite financial and practice management systems. Nine different countries were represented with 17 educational sessions packed in one 12-hour period. There was a shared focus between Elite’s 3E and Enterprise platforms, both of which will be receiving significant new version updates in the coming months.
